41 Kipnis, Jeffrey. (Philip Johnson.) PHILIP JOHNSON RECENT WORK. ARCHITECTURAL MONOGRAPHS NO 44. (PHILIP JOHNSON, RITCHIE & FIORE ARCHITECTS.)
(Academy Editions, London, 1996). 
127 pp, 4to (12" H), soft cover with self-flaps. Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photographs, drawings, plans. "The recent projects featured in this monograph chart another stage in the career of this architectural chameleon, now in his ninetieth year, and only serve to demonstrate his enthusiasm and propensity for new ideas and forms. In an informal interview with Frank Gehry and Jeffrey Kipnis, he discusses the accumulation and generation of these ideas through interaction with his contemporaries, including Frank Gehry himself and Peter Eisenman. The volume also reveals the methods of construction and engineering which are devised to realise the latest built forms, explained in several texts by Philip Johnson and his colleagues. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light edge wear, tiny bump at bottom of spine, rubbing to glossy covers - no color loss, tiny scuff with scratches on rear cover. VG-

42 Kohn, Wendy, editor. (Moshe Safdie, Michael Sorkin, Paul Goldberger, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski.) MOSHE SAFDIE.
London Academy Editions 1996 1854904531 / 9781854904539 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ Signed by Author
344 pp, folio (13 1/4" H). Signed on half title page: "Moshe Safdie / March 1997". "Influenced by the diverse cultures of Canada, Israel and the USA, Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. During 30 years of practice, he has designed public institutions, housing and mixed-use complexes, and developed designs for both existing urban districts and entirely new citities. In this monograph more than 40 of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches and text. These works include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo '67, the National Gallery of Canada, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Vancouver's Library Square in Caada; the Yad Vashem Children's Holocaust Memorial, the Restoration of the Jewish Quarter, Mamilla Center and Hebrew Union College in the city of Jerusalem; the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles; and the urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, Singapore and the new city of Modi'in in Israel. Together, they demonstrate the depth of Safdie's work, and an architectural vocabulary full of light and colour. In his essay 'The Language and Medium of Architecture' and in an interview with Wendy Kohn, Moshe Safdie discusses his architecture and influences. Each of the essays, by Michael Sorkin, Paul Goldberger, Witold Rybczynski and Peter G. Rowe, covers a different facet of Safdie's architectural oeuvre." Two tiny dents at top edge of rear board, very minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light rubbing, minor edge wear/wrinkling.

"Few people know England as well as Lucinda Lambton; few have the inquisitiveness and stamina to search out and follow up the clues which lead her to curiosities and glories hidden down country lanes, in unremarkable city streets, behind garden walls and unwelcoming facades. In her 'Album of Curious Houses' she has described and pho tographed some of these extraordinary finds: an underwater smoking room in Surrey; an eighteenth-century 'cottage ornee' in Devon, walls decorated with shells, fossils and painted birds with real feathers; a 1908 Yorkshire house all but covered i n c eramic tiles; a Cornish vicarage with six chimneys, each the replica of a church tower; twentieth-century London flats disguised as castles. Houses in churches, in medieval castles, in trees; triangular houses, circular houses, stately and u np re t en tious, old and new - Lucinda Lambton has visited them all and writes about them with great humour and wit."

Dust jacket has light edge wear with a few tiny tears, light edge wrinkling, light fad ing t o c olor on spine and on flap-folds - also slight fading on parts of front panel, light rubbing.

MONTREAL MOVIE PALACES:  GREAT THEATRES OF THE GOLDEN ERA, 1884-1938., Lanken, Dane.

Archives of Canadian Art / Penumbra Press, Waterloo, Ontario, 1993. 
190 pp, oblong 8vo (9" H x 11 3/4" D), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0921254482 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "There has never been another theatre-building boom like the one occasioned by the explosive success of t he movies in the 1910s and 1920s. In Montreal alone, dozens of new theatres were built, not plain shoeboxes like modern cinemas, but huge and ornate halls with great domes glowing on distant ceilings and dizzying decorative schemes on the w a l l s . T hey were dream palaces, where ordinary people (for the mere price of a ticket) could sit amidst splendour and watch great dramas and romances unreel on the silver screen. This is the story of Montreal's movie palaces, as great and or na te a s an y o n the continent, of the businessmen and architects and craftsmen who built them, the masses who flocked to them, of the glory days they knew in their glamorous reign and the hard times they faced with the rise of TV. Dane Lanken spe nt twe nt y y ea rs st udying Montreal's movie palaces, interviewing the people who were there, searching for rare and previously unpublished archival photographs, and commissioning new views - while the theatres still stood - from leading arch itec tur al p hot ogra phe rs B ria n Merrett and Julie Greto. The result is a comprehensive and richly illustrated social, artistic, architectural and corporate history of an exuberant and little known era in Montreal's history."

BAROQUE IN ITALY., Lees-Milne, James.

B.T. Batsford, London, 1959, first edition. 
216 pp, large 8vo (9" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions, floor plans. "(Lees-Milne writes about) the development of building in Italy from the Mannerist period, that is, the later sixteenth century, to the emergence of Rococo in the early eighteenth century. (He) believes that Baroque in Italy was a religious manifestation, Latin, Catholic and primarily Roman and his book deals largely with ecclesiastical architecture in Rome itself. Piedmont was the next most i mportant influence in the style, and so, after introducting the colossal personalities of Bernini, Borromini and their disciples, he concentrates upon the work of Guarini, Juvara and their followers. But he is not conerned exclusively with ar c h i t e c ture; he discusses the Baroque style as it manifested itself in the work of the painters, such as Caravaggio and Pietro da Cortona and the sculptors, above all Bernini. In reading the book the reader has the grateful impression, not so mu ch o f be in g instructed, as of sharing in the author's own pleasures and discoveries, for Mr. Lees-Milne has a winning and persuasive style exceptional in a work of learning."

B.T. Batsford, London, 1960, first edition. 
224 pp, large 8vo (9" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions, floor plans/elevations. "(S)tarting in the sixteenth century, author and reader begin their survey of Iberian Baroque with the Plateresque in Spain and the Manoel ine in Portugal, and continue it until, two hundred or so years later, they reach the High Baroque conclusion of Castile, Seville and Granada, and the Rococo decadence of eighteenth-century Portugal. On the way they will have examined some ar c h i t e c tural and sculptural masterpieces of astonishing quality and individuality: the palaces or houses of Mafra, Queluz and La Granja; Santiago da Compostela, the Escorial, the Cartuja of Coimbra; sculpture at Macarena, Alcobaca and Arouca; t he T ra ns pa ra nte of Toledo Cathedral, the convents of Bom Jesus, Tomar and Evora. - These, and many other churches, cathedrals, palaces and domestic buildings are illustrated in a collection of nearly 100 pictures which show, as unmistakably as Mr . L ees -Mi lne 's text, that Baroque, while it transcends frontiers, partakes as fully as any other style in regional and national characteristics."

Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1995. 
118 pp, large 8vo (9 7/18" H), soft cover. ISBN 1550022040 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, plans, elevations. "From 1876 to 1915, Edward James Lennox was a formidable force in Toronto's architectural community. Many of his buildings are still landmarks in a city that continues to evolve. Born and educated in Toronto, Lennox looked to the past for inspiration but was never captured by it. His prototypical Annex house on Madison Avenue, Old City Hall, and Casa Loma bear witness to his technical expertise and aesthetic sensibilities. Through text and illustrations, this volume tells the story of a resolute architect whose vision helped shape an emerging city, and who in his time was called the 'builder of Toronto'."

A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE:  FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD., Lloyd, Nathaniel.
50 Lloyd, Nathaniel. A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE: FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD.
Omega, Ware, 1985, reprint. 
487 pp, 4to (11" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1850070776 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, floor plans, drawings. "(This) reissue is prompted by the growth in general interest in historic buildings, for there is no work that prov ides such a complete record in text, pictures, plans and drawings of the whole development of English domestic architecture. Indeed, its value to scholars is literally unique, for Nathaniel Lloyd, who devoted a lifetime to its compilation, w a s a b l e to record many buildings which have either disappeared or been altered out of recognition. The book is divided into two parts. The first part consists of text which begins by tracing the development of the house from primitive tim e s to t h e No rm an period and, thereafter, devotes a chapter to each succeeding century. In the second part the same development is described in pictures, nearly nine hundred in number, which are grouped into sections under the headings of ext er io rs, en tr an ces , w ind ows, chimneys, interiors, wall treatment, ceilings, fireplaces, staircases, metalwork, etc. The arrangement of the illustrations allows the reader to study the chronological development of any one feature. When writ ing , t he a utho r c ons ider ed n ot o nly the professional architect (who will find it an invaluable source of reference, particularly in relation to conservation work) but also the general reader who, in the author's words, 'finds architecture a n at trac tive subje ct, but so so mplex as t o be difficult to grasp'. Those who want to know more about identifying features and construction methods of the various periods of English architecture will find this book an unrivalled guide to the r eward ing p astim e of l ooki ng i ntelli gently at ou r architectural heritage."

314 pp, 10" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, floor plans, elevations, drawings, overlays. "For the first time, the architectural history of the town of Lexington and its t wo nationally distinguished campuses has been appraised in a scholarly fashion. This Valley of Virginia community together with Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute, presents exceptionally fine examples of American architectural styles from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. A remarkable number of architects of national reputation, including Thomas U. Walter, Alexander Jackson Davis, and Bertram G. Goodhue, completed important work here. This new study places the noteworthy buildings and their designers within the context of the architectural development of the Valley region and assesses their role in the evolution of the nation's styles. The volume is divided into three sections: the town, Washington and Lee, and VMI. In each, an essay on the history of the development of representative styles is followed by a photographic survey of the buildings." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
