Thirteen Colonies Press April 1987  1987 
  square 4to softcover 241pp b/w illus. very good. This book contains text and elevation drawings and ground plans of nearly 400 classical buildings in Europe from 1419 to 1585. it shows the spread of classical architecture outwards from Florence and Rome to and area stretching from Portugal to Moscow, from Wales to Romania, from Scotland to Yuogoslavia, from Denmark to Malta and from Poland to Spain. It examines works by over 160 architects, including the more familiar Brunelleschi, Alberti, Bramante, the San Gallos, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Giulio Romano, Serlio, Palladio, Vignola, Herrera, and De L'Orme, as well as many undeservingly obscure figures, for example the previously unknown Flamish architect Hendrik van Paesschen (or van de Passe) emerges as an astonishing Palladio of the North. In the Appendix are biographical sketches of all the architects and and extensive Illustrated glossary of architectural terms. This book appeals to expert and layman alike and will be particularly helpful to students in art and architectural history courses, as well as to tourists planning visits to parts of Europe.

Huts, Havens and Hideaways
Denbury, Jo
ISBN: 1841722723
Ryland, Peters & Small Ltd February 18, 2002  2002 
  4to. Hardcover in d/w. Po inscription on half title. 144pp very good. We all dream of a secret hideaway at times. Somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a place to curl up and dream. The ethos behind "Huts, Havens and Hideaways" is just that - sanctuaries. From beach huts beside the sea to treehouses at the bottom of a garden. Desert airstreams to converted railway carriages. All these are encapsulated within the four elements of water, air, fire and earth, each person having their own particular affinity with one of these primal instincts. Jo Denbury brings these dreams to life with this, her first book, accompanied by photographer Chris Tubbs. The enticing photographs are complemented by the inspirational text of Ali Watkinson, all sowing the seeds of fantasies that could one day become true.

Living in Rio
De Mello, Paulo Thiago.
ISBN: 9780500513309
Thames and Hudson 2006  2006 
  Square 4to. New copy still in shrinkwrap. 204pp. Rio de Janeiro is everyone’s fantasyland. The Cidade Maravilhosa (the marvellous city) combines tropical vegetation, beaches carpeted with Girls from Ipanema and a sultry climate that lures everyone out of their homes on the many balmy evenings. Nothing can detract from its natural beauty, and no one can erase the smile of a carefree Carioca – the name the Indians gave to the original European settlers. Both a travelogue and a look inside some spectacular local homes, Living in Rio is a stylish overview of the city’s history, beaches, nightlife, parties and sensuous lifestyle. Vibrant photographs capture Rio, from the legendary Copacabana Palace to a white-walled mountain eerie designed by Oscar Niemeyer to the raucous parades of Carnival, while insider text gives an overview of the city’s dynamic art, architecture and sense of colour. Includes a Visitor's Guide to Key Local Stores, Restaurants, Hotels, Bars and other useful information.

Australian Architects: Philip Cox
Dean, John (Editor)
ISBN: 0909724539
Red Hill, ACT Intl Specialized Book Service Inc 1985  1985 
  4to softcover 95pp colour & b/w illus. very good, owner's names on fep. / very good d/w. Born in Sydney, in 1939, Cox was educated at the University of Sydney, and early in his career, particularly with domestic works, he displayed a sensitivity for the materials and environment of Australia characteristic of designers associated with "the Sydney School" style. After establishing his own firm in 1967 Cox pursued his interest in architectural history with numerous publications to his credit, including Colonial Architecture of Australia (Melbourne, 1978) and Rude TimberBuildings ofAustralia (London, 1969). His work displays the pragmatism and understatement characteristic of much Australian work * Current projects show more dramatic uses of space and less obvious historic overtones. The National Sports Stadium, Canberra (1977) is an example.Australian Architects -Philip Cox is an attractive, slim paperbound volume comprised of several essays about Cox's work augmented by abundant illustrations which survey the architect's major projects. The photographs, some in color, are of good quality, and numerous plans, sections, and elevations should fulfill the demands of users of this kind of book. Appending the text is a useful, comprehensive bibliography of writings by and about Cox. This book should prove to be a valuable resource on a significant contemporary architect.

Post-Modernism. The New Classicism in Modern Architecture

ISBN: 0847808351
New York Rizzoli International 1988  1988 
  Folio hardcover 360pp index, colour illus. very good / very good, creased & slightly faded d/w. From Library Journal: One of the most remarkable turnabouts in the art communities has been the resurgence of interest in classicism and academicism in every form from avante-garde painting to the design of houses and office buildings. This book puts all of this on the map in the considered style that has made Jencks one of the most sought-after commentators on the contemporary art scene. Whether or not one views this vein of art critically as a specious effluent of Neoconservatism or enthusiastically as Jencks does, as a vital reinterpretation of the Western artistic patrimony, this tome offers an understandable, worldwide survey. It contains over 300 sharp color illustrations.

Life in the English Country Cottage
Tinniswood
ISBN: 0297832743
London Weidenfeld 1995  1995 
  4to hardcover 216pp index, colour & b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. This is a guide to the history, social function and architecture of the English country cottage. Loosely based on Mark Girouard's classic survey, "Life in the English Country House", this look at the development of the English cottage covers three central areas of interest - building, living and working. The building section exanmines the architectural changes dictated by need and fashion from the Middle Ages to the Arts and Crafts movement. The living section looks at the difficulties of family life and stylistic trends according to tase of society. The final section of the book, on working in and around the cottage, examines the various uses to which the cottage was put in its rural context - from baking and brewing to textile outworking. nnBook DescriptionnA splendid illustrated history of the myth and reality of English cottage life over the last seven centuries, with 240 photographs, paintings, and drawings. Now in paperback. Whether Cotswold stone or a harmonious blend of timber-frame and thatch, the English cottage is an enduringly romantic symbol of country life at its most seductive. The ideal of cottage life is one that has tempted writers and artists for the last 200 years, but as this volume reveals, it was not always idyllic. From the medieval village to the 20th century, architectural historian Adrian Tinniswood traces the history of the cottage, exploring how they came to be built, the materials used to build them, and how they evolved. The focus of the book, however, is firmly on people: how cottage dwellers spent their time, what they ate and where they slept, and how they decorated and furnished their homes. A lively portrait, richly presented with 240 illustrations. Adrian Tinniswood is the author of Historic Houses of the National Trust and Country Houses from the Air. 216 pp 9 x 10 1/2 120 color & 120 b/w illustrations --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Lutyens and the Edwardians: an English architect and his Clients
Brown, Jane
Penguin UK 1997 
 Card Cover 276 crisp pp & almost a kilo to post. This book is designed as a companion to the author's book about the association between Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll - "Gardens of a Golden Afternoon". Lutyens was a humanist who was involved in the lives of all his clients. The houses he built for them express his delight in life in their fusion of enthusiasm and inventive design. This book provides a fascinating insight into the work of this country's most important architect since Christopher Wren; it will also be an interesting portrait of his clients and the social world of which he was a part. Illustrated with sketches, drawings and photographs from family archives, Lutyens and the Edwardians tells the story of the clients, often ordinary people, who made it possible for the architect to fulfil his dreams. review >>> A wonderful, colourful picture of the people and personalities of the creative Edwardian world. Witty and informative, a joy for enthusiasts of architecture and of society.   Excellent/None issued

The Architecture of Happiness
Alain de Botton
Penguin  2007 
 Softcover 280pp awash with photos, more than 500g to post. review >> Alain de Botton probes deeply into our thoughts and ideas about the buildings around us with amazing clarity. He puts words to feelings you might have had in the back of your mind but ignored because you didn't know whether they could be expressed. When you read his words you feel enlightened and grateful for the experience. You go back into the world with a more refined set of tools to process it with. Most books on architecture are about history and appreciation of aesthetic and cultural details. His book cuts right through that layer. What we find beautiful is the promise of an intelligent kind of happiness. A home should be a setting that reminds us of our deepest, most genuine values, our concern for others and for the environment. What we search for in architecture is not so far from what we search for in a friend. How wonderful to have these truths subtly and intricately revealed to us as a way of counteracting all the information about fashion and design, pumped into our brains on a daily basis. There are beautiful black and white photos and engravings throughout the book to illustrate his observations.  Very Good/None issued

Minor indications of wear, but a neat copy, Without damage. Matching dust jacket As Australia developed, so did its sense of style, reflected with pride in the main streets of its towns. The clash of the pragmatism of the set was the rigid authority of governments as reflected in the country towns today. The strict geometric order of streets of allotments and the commanding siting of official and church buildings were hallmarks of a hierarchical authority stretching back to Westminster; the verandahed broardwalks, the maximisation of the opportunities of the landscape, the varied and full-blooded architectural expression reveal the innovative sense of the settlers. - dust jacket blurb Size: Oblong 8vo - 7¾" - 9¾" tall but wider .
