Most widely held works by Nikolaus Pevsner
An outline of European architecture by Nikolaus Pevsner( Book )
229 editions published between 1942 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 4,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This seventh revised ed. of Nikolaus Pevsner's classic history is presented in an entirely new and attractive style. The format has been enlarged and the nearly 300 illustrations appear next to the passage to which they refer. The final chapter of the Penguin Jubilee ed. has been incorporated, carrying the story from 1914 to the present day, and there are substantial additions on the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries in France as well as many minor revisions. The book tells the story of architecture by concentrating on outstanding buildings, and reads exceedingly well in its concentration and its conbination of warmth and scholarship. -- from Back Cover

A history of building types by Nikolaus Pevsner( Book )
72 editions published between 1967 and 1998 in 6 languages and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Available again in paperback, this first survey of building types ever written remains an essential guide to vital and often overlooked features of the architectural and social inheritance of the West. Here Nikolaus Pevsner shares his immense erudition and keenly discerning eye with readers curious about the ways in which architecture reflects the character of society. He describes twenty types of buildings ranging from the most monumental to the least, from the most ideal to the most utilitarian. More than seven hundred illustrations illuminate the text. Both Europe and America have been covered with examples chosen largely from the nineteenth century, the crucial period for diversification. Included are national monuments, libraries, theaters, hospitals, prisons, factories, hotels, and many other public buildings; churches and private dwellings have been excluded for practical reasons. The author is concerned not only with the evolution of each type in response to social and architectural change, but also with differing attitudes toward function, materials, and style

"For more than thirty years, The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture has been a standard work of reference." "Encyclopedic in breadth, it describes key individuals, styles, movements, materials, and terms from Aalto to Zakharov, from the Acropolis to ziggurats. Major entries range up to several pages in length and include cross references and bibliographies for further reading." "Now renamed The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, this new edition has been completely reworked by John Fleming and Hugh Honour. All entries have been updated as necessary, many new ones have been written, and much greater prominence has now been given to landscape architecture, one of the most dynamic and important growth fields of recent years."--Jacket

Essex by Nikolaus Pevsner( Book )
42 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Essex, one the largest counties of England, stretches from the suburban fringes of East London to the fishing and sailing ports of Harwich and Maldon and the famous seaside resorts of Clacton, Frinton, and Southend. Its buildings encompass rich Roman survivals, powerful Norman architecture, and the remains of major Tudor and Jacobean country houses. Essex is first and foremost a county famed for its timber buildings, from the eleventh-century church at Greensted to the early and mighty barns at Cressing Temple, and a wealth of timber-framed medieval houses. Later periods have also made their contribution, from Georgian town houses to Victorian and Edwardian industrial and civic buildings, and from important exemplars of early Modern Movement architecture to the major monument of High Tech at Stansted Airport
Cornwall by Nikolaus Pevsner( Book )
32 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cornwall is a land apart, one which has had a strong sense of its separate identity throughout history. Here are some of the richest and best preserved prehistoric and medieval landscapes in Britain, medieval castles and later coastal defences, and a land of inscribed stones, holy wells, wayside crosses and small churchtowns, scattered throughout its diverse countryside and along its beautiful coastline. Its medieval churches show monumental Norman fonts, accomplished C14 sculpture, striking C15 west towers and generously proportioned C15 and C16 aisles, with a wealth of medieval and Renaissance bench ends. Major houses can be found from all periods ranging from the spectacular mansions of the mining magnates like Tregothnan and Lanhydrock, through the supremely picturesque as at St Michael's Mount, to the exquisite Elizabethan of Trerice. The smaller houses of the Cornish gentry survive in significant numbers from the medieval period, many refashioned in the C18 and C19.Threaded through almost every landscape is evidence of Cornwall's distinguished mining history, and its towns, remarkably well preserved, offer fine public buildings of the C18 and C19, and at Truro the greatest English cathedral of the Victorian age. Among the architectural highlights of the last century are Lutyen's dramatic extension to Penheale, Modernist seaside houses, Barbara Hepworth's sculpture garden and the vast biomes of the Eden Project."
