Reader's note

This beautiful book includes 120 illustrations by the author. “Most histories of architecture concentrate on the larger buildings of a given period, partly because there is more written evidence available, and partly because they usually hold within them the first appearance of new techniques in building. This book is perhaps unique in concentrating on the small domestic building at a level suitable for popular and school reading. -- The illustrations are an integral part of the text, intended both to clarify and amplify. They are of quite exceptional beauty and craftsmanship.” This vintage book would make a delightful addition to any library.
