THE AGE OF ADAM., Lees-Milne, James.
2 Lees-Milne, James. THE AGE OF ADAM.
London B.T. Batsford 1947 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
184 pp, 9" H. B&w and colour plates, including frontispiece, b&w floor plans. "James Lees-Milne sets out to show of what the work of Robert Adam and his three brothers really consisted, from what sources it was derived, what contemporary architects were affected by it, and what its influence was overseas. Using information from letters, diariees and records of the times, some of it hitherto unpublished, (he) traces the biographies of the Brothers Adam from their beginnings in Scotland to their eventual position as the most fashionable and influential architects and designers in Britain. He then proceeds to a critical examination of their work in England, Scotland and Ireland - their town houses and country houses, squares and terraces, ceilings, furniture and monuments. Next, there is an assessment of the work of the Adam's contemporaires and rivals, among them Wyatt, Taylor, Holland and Leverton; and a succeeding section deals with the Adam influence as it spread to Ireland, America, Russia and Sweden. A final chapter gives a short account of the lives and individual contributions of the Adams' collaborators - artists and craftsmen such as Chippendale, Angelica Kauffmann, Zucchi, Joseph Rose and Biagio Rebecca. Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, three light edge/corner bumps. Dust jacket has browning at top edge of flaps, light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, several very small tears at top of spine, very small red ink stain on front panel.
