Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: This authoritative and now classic work of reference on the history of British architecture contains biographical information on some 2,000 architects who practiced in England, Scotland, and Wales from the time of Inigo Jones (1573-1650) to that of William Burn (1789-1870) and Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860). The third edition of what began in 1954 as A Biographical Dictionary of English Architects 1600-1840, it now includes 150 new entries.

"[This book], perhaps Colvins best known work, is now in its revised and enlarged third edition. The volume is the standard reference work for all known architects practicing from the time of Inigo Jones to the end of the Georgian period. . . . The possibilities for research and cross reference that the dictionary provides cannot be overestimated."-Dana Arnold, The Architects Journal

"[An] indispensable book for any architecture historian, professional and amateur."-Colin Amery, Financial Times

"A definitive work of reference, but also extraordinarily absorbing, a book to savor again and again."-Linda Colley, The Observer

About the Author: Howard Colvin is emeritus fellow at St. Johns College, Oxford. He is also the author of Architecture and the After-Life and Unbuilt Oxford, published by Yale University Press.

Buchbeschreibung John Murray, London, revised edition, 1978, 1978. Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, 1080 pp. From the blurb: "This is designed to be an authoritative work of reference for the history of British architecture. It contains biographies of every significant architect practising in England, Scotland and Wales from the time of Inigo Jones (1573-1652) to that of William Burn (1789-1870) and Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860). As such it supersedes all previous works of reference, including the Dictionary of the Architectural Publication Society, the Dictionary of National Biography, and Howard Colvin's Biographical Dictionary of English Architects 1660-1840 (now out of print). For Scotland it is the first publication of its kind, and incorporates the results of much recent research on Scottish architecture. The Dictionary aims to list every building of importance whose architect can be identified, together with such essential details as date of erection and demolition, style, and references to published descriptions. It is based on extensive original re search and provides much unpublished information, including the names of many architects other wise unknown and many buildings whose author ship is recorded nowhere else. Every statement of fact is based on adequate historical evidence, and purely stylistic attributions, though not excluded, are carefully controlled. Many current misattributions are silently or explicitly disposed of in the present work. Besides providing an authoritative list of each architect's work, the author has, wherever possible, attempted to give a brief assessment of his place in British architectural history and some idea of the aesthetic quality of his work. Nearly all architectural books published in Britain between 1600 and 1840 are listed under their authors, and there are full indexes of persons and buildings." The work was first published in 1954 under the title "A Biographical Dictionary of English Architects, 1660-1840". Near Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper. Artikel-Nr. ABE-38873

Buchbeschreibung Yale University Press for the Paul Mellon Centre, New Haven, fourth edition, 2008, 2008. Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, 1334 pp. From the blurb: "This authoritative and now classic work of reference on the history of British architecture contains biographical information on some 2,000 architects who practised in England, Scotland and Wales from the time of lnigo Jones (1573-1652) to that of William Bum (1789-1870) and Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860). This new edition is the fourth of what began in 1954 as A Biographical Dictionary of British Architects 1600-1840, and 62 newly identified architects and about 700 buildings have been added since the previous edition. The dictionary lists every building of importance whose architect can be identified, together with such details as dates of erection and demolition, style, and references to illustrations and published descriptions. Besides a concise biography of each architect, the book provides, whenever possible, a brief assessment of the quality of the architect's work. All architectural books published by British architects of the period 1600-1840 are listed under their authors, and there are full indices of persons and buildings. The dictionary is prefaced by an introductory essay on the history of architectural practice in Britain between 1600 and 1840. The book is an essential tool for architectural historians, conservationists and local historians in England, Scotland and Wales. " Near Fine in Near Fine dustwrapper. Artikel-Nr. ABE-41964
