Brown, RJ: Timber-Framed Buildings of England
Book Number: 011076
Robert Hale UK 1986 24 Cm England has a magnificent heritage of timber-framed buildings, the oldest dating from the thirteenth century. Highly prized today, an increasing number have been lovingly restored to their original condition. The majority of these buildings are houses and cottages, but timber was widely used in all types of buildings including churches, guild-halls, town halls, inns, shops, farm and industrial buildings, and many others. All of these are detailed and profusely illustrated with the author's own delightful pen-and-ink drawings. He also shows how these intricate structures were assembled and identifies the regional characteristics and architectural features which represent an integral part of the history and charm of these fine old buildings. 368 crisp white pp & close to a kilo for post.
