The method has resulted in an intricate blend of biography, topography and criticism. Statesmen, connoisseurs, merchants, architects, jerry-builders, are among the characters, and the great figures in English architecture are seen in the context of practical building to which they properly belong. **** NOT EX LIB **** (Book ref. 008649 )  £ 7.00
