LONDON REVEALED.  THE BEAUTIFUL, BIZARRE AND UNEXPECTED INTERIORS OF THE CAPITAL., Freeman, John and Dormer, Peter.
29 Freeman, John and Dormer, Peter. LONDON REVEALED. THE BEAUTIFUL, BIZARRE AND UNEXPECTED INTERIORS OF THE CAPITAL.
Macdonald, London, 1989, first edition. 
240 pp, small 4to (10 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Beautifully and profusely illustrated with colour photographs. ISBN 0356175375 "John Freeman has spent a year investigating the worlds behind the closed doors of the Capital, unearthing an incredible variety of important interiors. The best and most exciting of these have been brought together in this book, revealing ninety unique views of London, many of which have been photographed here for the first time. The result is the mo s t authoritative and well-researched book on the hidden and unappreciated interiors of London, coveirng not only buildings from all periods of history but sites that represent many of the aspects of London life. Five thematic chapters put each in di vi d ual interior into context, making the book not only a stunning visual and descriptive account of the multifarious worlds inside London, but an important survey of London's architecture and design. The chapters include 'The Grand Scale', a s tud y o f the most opulent and grand interiors, with unusual angles on the well-known - such as the Albert Hall and Old Bailey - as well as impressive but less accessible sites such as the Granada Cinema at Tooting. 'Into the Twentieth Century' rev eals the i nnovative decors - successful or otherwise - of recent years; 'The Decorative Tradition' celebrates the richness of period and contemporary detailing in London; 'Moments Preserved' evokes not only nostalgia but wonders at the perfect pr eserv ation or restoration of a period room or moment in time (with a plea therefore for their further protection). 'Private Lives' explores the personal homes that have been transformed in traditional and eclectic styles by their owners, and als o prov ides g limp ses into private habitats, from the hallowed halls of the Reform Club to a Chelsea houseboat and even a 'taxi driver' eatery." This is a heavy volume which will require additional postage. Minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has min or wr inkling at top of spine and rear flap-fold, very minor rubbing.

Phoenix House, London, 1962, revised edition. 
264 pp, 8vo (8 9/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Over 150 b&w illustrations (drawings and photographs) showing buildings, floor plans, architectural details. "....(studies the architecture of London and) beyond to Kent, Surrey, Hertfordshire, a nd elsewhere up to a limit of forty miles to introduce and describe the fine houses, churches, abbeys, palaces, and other buildings deserving of public interest in some of the home counties. It could justly be claimed that no major buildi n g o f a r c h itectural merit from Norman to our own time is overlooked, and some of the greater glories of London's stone are the subject of concise yet comprehensive essays, Westminster Abbey, for example, and the peculiarly beautiful Eltham P al ac e , so su rp ri si ngly situated in what is now one of London's populous suburbs. But Mr Godfrey is far from a mere guide. His book brims with profound knowledge and an engaging enthusiasm. He understands that most of his readers are not v ers ed in t he t erm s a nd ref erences of architecture, and these are introduced one by one, and the wonders and excitements of the art of building are revealed in their various beauty. Architectural features and comparative styles, together with pla ns and de tai le d dr awin gs, are included in the 59 text figures, and there are 64 pages of plates containing 104 photographs and rare prints of buildings as they appeared in the past...."

Oxford Phaidon 1980 0714817325 / 9780714817323 Second Impression. Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
411 pp, 10 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour. "After an Introduction on Order and Purpose in Nature, which offers a novel approach to the study of pattern, the first chapters deal with the criticism of ornament, the cult of simplicity and the debates about design in Victorian England, in which such eminent critics as Ruskin, Owen Jones and Gottfried Semper made a permanent contribution to theoretical issues. The craftsman's practice of pattern-making is studied as a response to the challenges of material, of geometrical laws and psychological constraints, after which the author examines the perception and the effects of visual orders in the light of recent research. The relation-ship between psychology and history is the theme of four final chapters which deal with the tenacity of ornamental traditions, their modification by the changing styles and fashions of different periods, the role of symbolism in the origin and the use of motifs, and the psychological roots of the grotesque, oscillating between magic and humour. An Epilogue reviews some of the analogies between the spatial orders of decorative design and the temporal patterns of the dance, of poetry and, notably, of music, not forgetting the 'kinetic art' of our century. This absorbing work, the fruit of a lifetime's interest in the most universal and yet strangely neglected manifestation of human creativity, is based on the Wrightsman Lectures given by the author in 1970 under the auspices of the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University." Very minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, one tiny tear archivally taped.

240 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). B&w photographs. "Mr. Harvey (a professional architect who has been trained and has specialized in conservation) is no theorist and takes the view that contemporary human needs are important and that buildings or groups of buildings must be conserved to accommodate some part of their original function, and must also be regarded in the context of their surroundings. He divides his book into three sections: What to Save and How to Save It (The Town, The Village, The Church and Churchyard), Craftsmanship and Materials, and Continuing Conservation (The Past, the Present and the Future). In these sections building conservation is looked at with an experienced, scholarly but essentially practical view. The book concludes with appendices and notes on sources...enriched with fifty-two photographs, showing conservation at work in the hands of living craftsmen, at Oxford, Winchester and elsewhere, adding much of beauty and value to the text." Book slightly cocked, some light fading to color on top of text block - also a small liquid mark, minor scuffs and discoloration on boards.

Of the many public buildings erected in pre-Confederation Canada, it best encapsulates the diverse stylistic forces that shaped public buildings of its era. The gated lawns, the grandly Venetian rotunda, the ornate courtroom, the portrait-lined walls, and the stained-glass windows evoke a venerable dignity to which few Canadian institutions can aspire. It has been the seat of the Law Society of Upper Canada since 1832 and of several of the Superior Courts of the province for almost as long. It has become a symbol of the legal tradition, not only in Ontario, but throughout Canada and beyond." Small gift notation on verso of free front endpaper.

40 Hubbard, R.H. Foreword by Her Excellency, Jeanne Sauve. AMPLE MANSIONS: THE VICEREGAL RESIDENCES OF THE CANADIAN PROVINCES.
Ottawa University of Ottawa Pres 1989 0776602772 / 9780776602776 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
237 pp, oblong (9 1/4" H x 12 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, repro-ductions. "The viceregal residences of the Canadian provinces mirror the idiosyncrasies of their inhabitants, and the tastes and talents of the architects, builders, gardeners, furniture makers and decorators who created them. In 'Ample Mansions' you will see the finest - and sometimes the worst - of Canadian style. There's no shortage of pomp in our viceregal history, but Dr. Hubbard's scholarly and sprightly text goes behind the scenes too, where there's plenty of room for rot and mildew, plugged drains and erratic staff. There are ample mansions crumbling from neglect, ample mansions consumed in conflagrations, ample mansions falling victim to political spats - and ample mansions rising in new splendour." Fine book. Dust jacket has three small areas of minor rubbing on rear panel.
