An Architect's Experiences: Professional, Artistic and Theatrical

Manchester, J.E. Cornish 1897

xv+351pp plus 6 b/w tissue guarded plates. 4to. Original cloth-backed lettered boards. A little scuffed at edges, else good. Very useful biography of this architect and amateur actor from the North West of England. Derbyshire (1839-1908) worked in the Gothic and classical idioms on a number of civic projects and churches, but was chiefly known as a theatre architect, designing theatres in Manchester (including the Comedy Theatre and the Palace Theatre) and redesigning the Lyceum in London. This fascinating book is very hard to find.
