A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE:  FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD., Lloyd, Nathaniel.

Author Name    Lloyd, Nathaniel.

Title   A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE: FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD.

Publisher    Omega, Ware, 1985, reprint.

Seller ID   22526

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." Four pages with small crease at top corner, one page with small area of creasing and tiny tear at top corner. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, minor edge wrinkling. Very Good/V ery Go od+
