"(T)he British Architects and Craftsmen are related here to the general European background and tradition. Wren, Vanbrugh, Kent - to name three instances - take their places as figures in the European Renaissance. Then again, the inclusion of craftsmen - of clockmakers and silversmiths, of bookbinding and tapestries - is something never before attempted upon this comprehensive scale. (T)he reader may as well accompany Mr. Sitwell upon a tour of Georgian Dublin, to an old shop in Spitalfields, to the Assembly Room at Shrewsbury, to Hardwick Hall, to the City Churches, to an old almshouse, or to the village of Great Tew." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one very small corner bump on front board, very light rubbing and a very small stain on each board, very light edge and corner wear. Dust jacket has heavy browning at top edge, small edge tears and chips - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, browning on spine and flap-folds, protected in a mylar sleeve.
