THE STORY OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE:  THE ROYAL HOME THROUGH SEVEN REIGNS., Peacocke, Marguerite D.
81 Peacocke, Marguerite D. THE STORY OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE: THE ROYAL HOME THROUGH SEVEN REIGNS.
Odhams, London, (1951). 
288 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos, plans. "...tells the story of Buckingham Palace through the reigns of seven British monarchs, describing how and why it was built and the purposes for which it has been used since its foundation. It traces the history of the Palace from its earliest origins as the private home of Sir William Blake, erected in 1623 on a site that was formerly the scene of a rowdy, disreputable pleasure-garden. And it reacalls three centuries of replanning and rebuilding from which emerged the Palace that today is the premier residence of the British Royal Family...this is not the impersonal history of a building...it is the warm, human story of all the people who, through the years, have helped to make the Palace what it is today - from architects to ambassadors, from statemen to stonemasons, from kings and queens to kitchen maids and cabinet-makers..." 1 1/2" split to paper on inside front hinge, some very light browning to endpapers, slight small bump to corners, light foxing marks on edges of textblock, very light browning to edges of spine and boards. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, several small tears and one small chip, slight darkening to spine and flap-folds, small crease on front flap and rear panel.

96 pp, 8 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs. "For over a century, Windermere House has symbolized the very essence of Muskoka. Its twin towers and proud gables captivated thousands of visitors. When the resort burned on February 27, 1996 people felt they'd lost a friend. This is the story of the profound effect this building has had on the Muskoka region, from its earliest days in the Aitken family, through its terrible destruction and miraculous rise from the ashes. The story unfolds through the memories of family, guests and former staff members, who recount the inner workings of the resort, its idiosyncrasies and its appeal. After Windermere House was destroyed people realized they must have it back, exactly as it was. Today, the resurrected Windermere House not only has the look but also the feel that made its forerunner truly the Lady of the Lakes." Minor wear on fore-edge of front board, light waviness at bottom edge of pages. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap folds, Light fading to spine color and at top edge of rear flap.

Societe Jersiaise and The Rector and Churchwardens of Saint Brelade, 1990.

ISBN 0901897191 "Externally, the Fishermen's Chapel is a plain, rectangular structure with no sign of ornamentation or suggestion of the glory that it holds within. But once inside, the visitor is confronted with an experience of unparalleled delight: the walls and the stone-vaulted ceiling are covered with Old and New Testament scenes, executed in bright colours. For more than six hundred years these medieval paintings have survived the ravages of time and man, and although they are now far from complete, their impact is nevertheless stunning: the message they conveyed to medieval worshippers is still there to be read today. Between 1982 and 1988, an integrated programme of research and investigation, conservation and repair, refurbishment and revitalization, took place with an interdisciplinary and internationally recruited team. The results of their findings have now been distilled and are presented in this volume." Chapter headings: Historical Introduction; A Brief Description of the Chapel; The Wall Paintings; Archaeological Investigations; Structural Analysis; Architectural Style and Dating; Conservation and Restoration; Synthesis and Interpretation; Technical Appendices. Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light soiling mark in margin of page125. Dust jacket has light rubbing, one tiny edge tear, tiny dent on spine. VG+/VG

160 pp, 11 1/4" H. Marbled-pattern endpapers, color and b&w photographs, floor plans. This book "is for everyone interested in America's early Colonial homes but it is especially for those hoping to build or remodel an attractive, livable, comfortable and reasonably authentic Saltbox or Cape. (It) gives the six best ways to do this. But for you to do it in the charming tradition of our ancestors, you must first have a fairly complete understanding and appreciation of the original Saltboxes and Capes. You should know how they have changed and developed over the years. Despite the distinctive design and great age of the Saltbox, or Catslide, house - it was first built in America in about 1650 and goes back three centuries before that in England - this is the first book ever to discuss it fully. The equally old Cape Cod house is covered in the same way. (Approximately 140 houses are featured), half saltboxes, half Capes. Half are antique, half have been built in the past fifty years." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, two very tiny light stains on top of text block, minor scuff on fore-edge of front board.

He writes of such masterworks as Burgos Cathedral, Santiago de Compostela, or the Alhambra, but he is no less interested in places which are equally characteristic and whose merits are far less well known. Thus, he is equally at home with the people and their customs; the processions of Holy Week, the Gypsies, the bull fights, the cave dwellers of the Barrio de Santiago."

"The reputation of Richard Neutra (1892-1970) is founded on his finely executed and superbly landscaped domestic buildings. Born and educated in Vi enna, where he was influenced by the leading European architects, notably Adolph Loos, Neutra developed the intense dislike of ornament that was to characterize his work. He emigrated to the United States in 1923 and in 1926 established a pract i c e in California where the majority of his buildings are to be found. His highly individual style is characterized by the adoption of plate glass for exterior walls, combined with overhanging eaves, outrigged columns and integrated pools, and b y th e e xploitation of the subtropical California vegetation to create privacy." Slight browning to edges of textblock, two very small light stains on bottom of text block, tiny light foxing marks on top of text block, slight waviness at top edge of pi ct ur e pages.

"Beginning with a discussion of the area's history, (the authors) explore the work of the most prominent architectural firm in Victorian London (Ontario) - Robinson, Tracy, Durand and Moore - and its role in the development of southwestern Ontario. From their focus on specific architects emerges a broader picture of the factors that typically shaped Victorian towns. They consider the various theories and movements that were given expression in Victorian building design, the social influences on the period's architecture, the evolution of building technology, and the state of the architectural profession in general during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. At the heart of the book, of course, are the buildings. Churches, banks, schools, courthouses, stores, and all manner of public buildings, as well as private homes are represented. Extensively illustrated, the book includes old photographs, reproductions of drawings and plans, and contemporary photographs of buildings which still stand, taken specially for this volume by Ian MacEachern."
