The Priory Estate Dudley. Report on Proposals for its Development Prepared Under the Direction of the Council

London, B. T. Batsford. 1929

48 pp. including 7 b&w ill. and 1 colour frontis of estate plan. 4to in green blind stamped boards with gilt lettering and crest on front board. Slightly rubbed at head and base of spine, else vg. Preliminary report on the design of the Priory Estate, of considerable interest in light of its subsequent history and the demolition and redevelopment of the northern part of the estate. It is especially interesting in retrospect to read the sections on road planning at a time when a future of mass car ownership was still debatable. Mawson also developed the park from the original landscape of Lord Dudley's mansion. This is now on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. Fascinating report, containing notable line drawings.
