493 pp, small 4to (10 5/8" H). INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "BEST WISHES FROM NANCY Z. TAUSKY 7 DEC. 1986 / WITH GOOD WISHES - LYNNE D. DISTEFANO 7 DECEMBER 1986". "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." Minor browning in margins of pages and edges of textblock, tiny surface paper loss at top of inside front hinge, very light edge rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine .
