Summerson, Architecture in Britain 1530-1830
In this book Sir John Summerson charts the development of architectural theory and practice from Elizabeth I to George IV. Questions of style, technology, and the social framework of architecture are resolved as separable but always essential components of the building world. Men of genius and buildings of fame emerge: Inigo Jones, Wren, Vanbrugh, Adam, Soane; Hampton Court, St Paul’s Cathedral, London squares and the terraces and crescents of Bath. Appendices deal with Scottish architecture before the union and buildings in the thirteen colonies of America. The book is a companion to Ellis Waterhouse’s Painting in Britain 1530-1830 and Margaret Whinney’s Sculpture in Britain 1530-1830; colour plates have been added to this new edition.
