The Appreciation of Architecture
London Wishart & Co 1932
63pp illus with 16 b/w plates, quarter cloth with decorated boards. Good copy. Overprinted but incomplete and rather glassine wrapper present on this copy with list of upcoming publications by Wishart and Co. on inner fold of glassine wrapper. Title of book also printed on the overprinted wrapper. An appreciation of architecture is a strong element in Byron's writings and he was an articulate advocate for the preservation of historic buildings and founding member of the Georgian Group. Best known for the book "Road to Oxiana" but this relatively early polemic is informative about his views on architectural history and art history in his short life. Book plate of Colin Amery on front end paper. [ Designed by Gavin Stamp.] Name in pen of Margaret Jack also on end paper.
