Description Georgian London de John Summerson:

In this classic of English architectural history, John Summerson provides an 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-19th-century expansion, it explores the genesis and development of Georgian London. Summerson examines the way in which building was conditioned by social, economic and financial circumstances and discusses some of Britain's most important buildings and their architects. 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 updated. Sir John Summerson (1904-1992) was the curator of Sir John Soane's Museum in London for almost forty years, simultaneously teaching the history of architecture at the Architectural Association in London and at Birkbeck College, University of London. His many books include Architecture in Britain 1530-1830 (ISBN 0 300 05886 1, pb. [pound]20.00*) for the Yale Pelican History of Art series, Inigo Jones (ISBN 0 300 08244 4, pb. [pound]8.95), and The Classical Language of Architecture. Sir Howard Colvin is Emeritus Fellow of St. John's College, Oxford University. His previous books include Essays in English Architectural History (ISBN 0 300 07034 9, [pound]45.00), A Biographical Dictionary of British Architects 1600-1840 (ISBN 0 300 07207 4, pb. [pound]30.00), Unbuilt Oxford (ISBN 0 300 03126 2, pb. [pound]25.00), and Architecture and the After-Life (ISBN 0 300 05098 4, [pound]55.00), all published by Yale University Press.
