This reference on the history of British architecture contains biographical information on some 2000 architects who practised 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). This third edition includes 150 new entries. It 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.
