Georgian London by John Summerson ( Book )

"In this classic of English architectural history (first published more than half a century ago), John Summerson provided a perceptive and highly readable account of a major building period in the history of London. Encompassing the architecture of the capital from the Great Fire of 1666 through the city's early nineteenth-century expansion, the book remains an indispensable guide to the genesis and development of Georgian London." "Summerson examines the way in which building in late Stuart and Georgian London was conditioned by social, economic and financial circumstances. He discusses the origins of the London squares, the characteristic forms of London street architecture, the great Georgian public buildings, the industrial architecture of the docklands, and the suburban developments of the early nineteenth century. The major Georgian buildings of the capital are critically discussed and the contributions of their architects evaluated with characteristic wit and elegance." "While Summerson's text is essentially unchanged in this edition, it has been corrected in the light of new research, expanded to include a few significant buildings that were originally overlooked, and enhanced with new illustrations. The Appendix of surviving Georgian buildings has also been carefully updated."--BOOK JACKET
