Descripción Oxford: Clarenden Press, 1980. First edition., 1980. 8vo., navy cloth, pp. xvi, 382, +  b&w plates. A study of the careers of James Knowles the elder, architect of the Grosevnor Hotel, and his better known son. James Knowles, the junior, started his carrer as an architect and designed Aldworth for Lord Alfred Tennyson. He founded the Metaphysical Society, edited the Contemporary Review, from 1870 until 1876, and then founded his own monthly review, the Nineteenth Century, which he edited for 31 years, commencing in 1877. This study examines the way he bridged the two disciplines of writing and architecture, and it illuminates the interplay between literary and architectural medeivalism. Knowles was the editor who staged the public controversy between Gladstone and Huxley, over the scientific truth of the Bible. Near fine in dust jacket. Nº de ref. de la librería 07608
