Penguin Pelican: An Outline Of European Architecture

£21.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This blue Pelican revised and enlarged paperback edition was published in 1945 (first published in 1943). Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's study of European architecture has been regarded as a seminal work which has inspired countless students of architecture around the world. Through his perceptive understanding of the heritage of past civilisations, and in the delineation of the buildings that continue to be recognised as the greatest symbols of artistic endeavour, Pevsner remains an essential guide and companion. Illustrated with line drawings, floor plans, and many black-and-white photographs, the book looks at Britain and France, the Renaissance, early and classic Gothic style, and the romantic movement. It includes a bibliography, a glossary, an index and advertisements. The book is showing signs of age: there is no dustwrapper and the cover is spotted and worn. There is a tear at the top of the spine. The binding is holding, although the first few pages are at risk, and the pages are yellowing.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
