Pocock, Designs for Churches & Chapels
This is a faithful reproduction of W.F. Pocock’s book of 1819 and is a major landmark in the publication of architectural facsimiles. It is probably the most important Georgian pattern book not hitherto reprinted and is of fundamental importance in understanding the dynamic story of church and chapel building in the period after Waterloo. It was the only book ever produced on this subject before 1836.
The 44 model designs were enthusiastically copied, especially by Nonconformists, and the letterpress provided sound, partial suggestions for those contemplating building.
It also had enormous influence in North America where countless buildings can be traced back to Pocock’s manual-a compelling chapter in the story of transatlantic architectural history.
Accompanying the original work is a scholarly well-illustrated introduction by Christopher Webster, a leading expert on churches of this period, which sets the book in its wider context.
