Oxford : an architectural guide by Geoffrey Tyack( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir James Pennethorne and the making of Victorian London by Geoffrey Tyack( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pennethorne was one of the leading classical architects of the period, although he has hitherto been generally neglected and undervalued. This study, one of the first in a major new series, throws fresh light on some of the main architectural issues and controversies of the time. Even more important, it contributes to an understanding of the complicated relationship between government and architects, and of the forces which created the London of the nineteenth century and of today. The book therefore makes a contribution to the history of urban planning, and to urban and architectural history in general, in addition to offering an important new assessment of Pennethorne himself

The Renaissance villa in Britain, 1500-1700 by Malcolm Airs( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book leading architectural and garden historians trace villa life in Britain for the first time. Through a series of thematic chapters and individual case studies they explain its social background and achievements. Famous buildings such as Inigo Jones's Queen's House at Greenwich are analysed and reinterpreted, along with lesser-known houses and gardens in the London area, the English provinces, and Scotland. Copiously illustrated, with plentiful plans, this book is a major contribution to the history of domestic architecture and garden design in Britain, and is essential reading for anyone interested in early modern society and the history of the built environment."--Jacket
