'Nash's most impressive legacy must surely be that he is one of the few architects that everyone can name. For Nash stands at the very heart of the English aesthetic experience: in a sense, his grip has never loosened...[the book's] succinct entries for 286 attributed or attributable designs, effective photography, and the author's exemplary plan drawings provide an invaluable source of reference for those who might confuse their Cumberland Terrace with their Chester Gate...[it] provides every type of reader with a first-rate introduction to its subject.' (World of Interiors)
'Beautifully illustrated.' (Country Landowner)
'The definitive guide.' (Period Ideas for Your Home)
This reference work catalogues and illustrates all the known and attributed works and design of John Nash. Altogether, Nash was responsible for some 230 projects, and these are all illustrated, either by the author's own photographs or, in the case of demolished buildings, by contemporary views and technical drawings. The photographs are supported by captions giving factual data for the use and interest of scholars and general information about the buildings, their settings and their original owners for the general reader. Each caption has its own bibliography and plan where applicable. The book closes with a chronological list of works, a list of patrons and clients, a gazetteer and two maps showing the locations of the works.
