Elizabethan Architecture by GIROUARD Mark

Elizabethan Architecture

New Haven and London Yale University Press 2009

400pp with 150 b/w and 150 colour illus. Large 4to. Fine in similar dw. Girouard addresses the evolution of the house plan, the excitement of English patrons and craftsmen as they learned the classic Five Orders and studied the buildings of Ancient Rome, the wealth of architectural drawings that survive from the period, the inroads of foreign craftsmen who brought new fashions in ornament, and the strength of the native tradition that was integrated with the "antique" style.
