9780300060911: A Biographical Dictionary of British Architects, 1600-1840: Third Edition (The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art)

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.

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 gives, 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 by author name, and there are full indices of persons and buildings. The dictionary is prefaced by an 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.

About the Author:

Review:

"'No more important contribution has been made to the history of English architecture (or any of the visual arts in England, for that matter)... in this century' Hugh Honour, The Observer 'It is hardly an exaggeration to say that Colvin's Dictionary changed the face of English architectural history' David Watkin in The Rise of Architectural History 'an indispensable reference on any architectural historian's bookshelves... a treasured source of much fascinating information... a staggering achievement, beautifully written and superbly produced. It is indubitably the standard work of biographical reference in the field' James Stevens Curl, Journal of the Royal Society of Arts '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"
