An attempt to discriminate the styles of architecture in England, from the conquest to the reformation: with a sketch of the Grecian and Roman orders; notices of numerous British edifices; and some remarks on the architecture of a part of France by Thomas Rickman( )

2 editions published between 1835 and 1862 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1817, this highly influential study by Thomas Rickman (1776-1841) provides a classic overview of English medieval architecture. A devotee of the Gothic style, Rickman forged a successful career as an architect of Anglican churches, in the face of criticism from his Quaker brethren. This study is founded on the attention to detail and delight of a true enthusiast, drawing on knowledge of some five hundred buildings across the British Isles. Describing Greek and Roman influences before delineating English architecture since the Norman Conquest, Rickman presents a compelling narrative of architectural styles and precedents. Illustrated with a number of detailed drawings, the work ends with short entries, organised by county, on notable cathedrals, churches and abbeys. Introducing terminology and classifications that are still used today, the book quickly became an essential reference work for architectural students and practitioners. This reissue is of the first edition
The stones of Venice by John Ruskin( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treatise on architecture by John Ruskin. It was published in three volumes in 1851-53. Ruskin wrote the work in order to apply to the architecture of Venice the general principles enunciated in his The Seven Lamps of Architecture. Volume I, The Foundations, discusses architecture and its functional and ornamental aspects and presents a brief history of Venice. In Volume II, The Sea Stories, Ruskin discusses the Byzantine period and the climactic development of Venetian life, its Gothic period. In Volume III, The Fall, Ruskin puts forth his thesis that the onset of the Renaissance caused the city's architectural decline. Ruskin contended that Gothic architecture expressed "a state of pure national faith, and h domestic virtue" while Renaissance architecture expressed "concealed national infidelity, and h domestic corruption."--The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
Pompeiana: the topography, edifices and ornaments of Pompeii, the result of excavations since 1819 by William Gell( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HISTORY OF ART: BCE TO C 500 CE, ANCIENT & CLASSICAL WORLD. Sir William Gell (1777-1836) was a British archaeologist known for his drawings of sites and objects of classical interest. Noting that from the beginning of the excavations at Pompeii in 1748 'to the present day, no [substantial] work has appeared in the English language upon the subject of its domestic antiquities', together with architect and fellow countryman John P. Gandy he first published Pompeiana to help detail important findings that had been made by the excavators in the first two decades of the nineteenth century. To this end they provide historical discussion, analysis, and over 75 plates illustrating various points of archaeological interest including, as their subtitle notes, 'the topography, edifices, and ornaments of Pompeii'. Pompeiana is an important work that helped open the excavations to English readers and created further awareness of the treasures of the doomed city, destroyed by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE
