Product description

Contrasts

A W N Pugin

The Victorian Library, Leicester University Press

2nd Impression, 1973

In very good condition. There are two closed tears measuring 10mm and 5mm at the bottom edge of the dust jacket. Inside, there is an inscription (a name and a date) in black pen at the top of the first blank page.

AWN Pugin, who was born in London on 1 March 1812, was only 24 when he published Contrasts. It was the book that made his name, and was the first architectural manifesto. Prior to that, there had been treatises on building going back to Vitruvius, texts that set out rules for proportion, aesthetics and construction. Contrasts, as its many critics were quick to point out, had little to say on these subjects. What Pugin offered his readers instead was an entire social programme, one which redefined architecture as a moral force, imbued with political and religious meaning.
