Cloth, small 4to, 26 cm, xi, 188 pp, : ills (some colour), maps. From the blurb: "This book describes the architecture of the Cotswolds in terms of its characteristic building material, Cotswold stone, and provides a practical and informative guide to its use and care. Illustrated with over 150 colour and black and white photographs and diagrams, its combination of visual inspiration and practical advice will stimulate a greater appreciation of the qualities and treatment of Cotswold stone by enthusiasts, building professionals and the general public. Following a brief introduction to the landscape of the Cotswolds, its natural history and human habitation, the book describes the geological formation of the region and the different varieties of its characteristic limestone. The use of stone is traced from quarrying, past and present, to the basic techniques of building in stone, the traditional skills employed in the use of lime, and the conservation and repair of stone in buildings. The development of the Cotswold style of architecture is described, with guidance on the preservation of characteristic features. Six case studies outline the sensitive and skilful adaptation of different Cotswold buildings, from a millers house in a Stroud valley to a cottage by the river Windrush, and a barn near Lechlade. This section also gives guidance on the selection of professional advice and workmanship. Extensive appendices provide an invaluable outline of the relevant conservation and building legislation, and sources of advice, expertise, materials and training. The book is completed by a comprehensive bibliography and index." Fine in Fine dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-31082
