English Neo-classical architecture: Volume One and Volume Two

£44.99

Product description

Volume One is in very good condition, with only a small tear (less than 1cm) in the spine of the dust jacket. Otherwise all pages are clean and intact. Includes many black and white photographs, sketches and illustrations.

Volume Two is in very good condition with the dust jacket, cover and pages clean and intact.

"The true, the Simple & Grand Architecture, which we are all in search of, & which nothing but the Ancients can Inspire", in Robert Adam's words written from Rome in 1756, was created in profusion in Britain in the second half of the eighteenth century. Its richness and variety were fed by a number of impulses - the designs of English neo-Palladians, the national fervour for Classical antiquity that followed the discovery of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Enlightenment, the Industrial and Consumer Revolutions. This book fulfills a long-felt need for a comprehensive study of the period, putting into perspective the many monographs and other specialised literature published over the last two decades, and defining and exemplifying in detail the conceptual character of Neo-classical design in Britain.
