Victorian Architecture An Age Revisited
'Highly informed, astute, and spirited studies of 19th-century architecture- domestic, civic, ecclesiastic- and the social and ideological conflicts behind it. From the neo-Gothic to the neo-Georgian, Victorian accomplishments were stupendous, if never quite at the top line. Here is a book which explores and analyzes that achievement and that failure, with much that is relevant to the problems and functions of architecture-and living in the changed world of today.' A. W. N. Pugin, William Burges, Sir Gilbert Scott, Sir Joseph Paxton, etc. Boards a bit bowed, old clippings loosely inserted (articles by John Betjemen) have browned adjacent pages, otherwise, book and dust jacket in very good condition.
