R D Chantrell: And the architecture of a lost generation (1793-1872)
Spire Books 2010
338pp illustrated with 196 illustrations. 4to. Fine in dust wrapper. Chantrell - along with many architects of his generation - has hitherto been confined to the shadows of architectural history, shadows cast so adeptly by Pugin and the Ecclesiologists. This book reconsiders his many achievements and sets them within the context of architectural theory and practice of his time. Beautifully produced book. Renowned around Yorkshire for his work at Leeds Parish Church.
