"Lawrence Weaver was one of the foremost writers on British architecture and allied arts of his time. As Architectural Editor of Country Life before the Great War he popularised the works of Lutyens, Jekyll and Lorimer and wrote extensively about the new English country houses, whose design and landscaping were then passing through their last Golden Age. Weaver was an admirably clear writer and his industry was remarkable. As well as his country house books and monographs, he wrote major studies on modern cottages design, memorials, exhibition layout, architectural details and other related topics. This first bibliography of Weaver provides full details of his many books, in their various editions, and catalogues all his known articles - for Country Life, Architectural Review and other journals. The list runs into many hundreds. The author's unravelling of Weaver's many Country Life contributions is especially useful : this journal is an outstanding source for the architecture of the period, but one from which information can be difficult to access. This publication has been compiled by Weaver's grandson, who has also included a short life of him. In addition, Dr Patrick Nuttgens contributes an essay, 'Lawrence Weaver: Architectural Writer'." - from the prospectus. Near Fine in slightly used glassine dustwrapper.
