1851 and the Crystal Palace

1851 and the Crystal Palace


 by Christopher Hobhouse (with introduction by Osbert Lancaster)

London: John Murray, 1950.  "An account of the Great Exhibition and its contents; of Sir Joseph Paxton; and the erection, the subsequent history ad the destruction of his masterpiece..."  A handsome book on a fascinating subject, well-illustrated throughout.  Dust jacket has survived well, with some minor flaws (small areas of loss at extremities, some surface wear, and a slightly sunned spine).  This is the revised edition published one year before the centennial of the palace.
