9780140137330: Georgian London (Penguin art & architecture)

Between 1714 and 1830, great squares, elegant stucco and brick terraces, fine churches, grand parks and new thoroughfares transformed the appearance of London. Sir John Summerson paints a picture of the architect's aims, the technical innovations and the social and political background which determined the character of these changes. Ranging from the work of Adam and Nash to that of cavalier speculators, embracing political crises, legislation and hopes of social reform, this book combines analysis of great and famous buildings - Westminster Bridge, the Bank of England and the Horseguards - with a detailed description of the historical circumstances out of which they rose.
