Hardback.  First edition.  Signed by C.H. Reilly and dedicated to his former pupil, fellow architect, and creator of the Peter Jones Department Store, William Crabtree.  Fascinating collection of essays covering such diverse topics as ‘Religious Building Today’, ‘Modern American Architecture’, and ‘Wren as a Baroque Architect’.  ‘C. H. Reilly (1874-1946) began his tenure of the Professorship of Architecture at Liverpool University by advocating a return to late eighteenth and early nineteenth century classicism, in defiance of the prevailing preference for non-academic Classicism and the Arts and Crafts aspiration to create a styleless architecture.’

Condition: Boards slightly foxing and lightly edge-worn.  Light rubbing to top and tail of spine.  Slight foxing to contents and edges, otherwise very good.
