Specimens of Mediaeval Architecture Chiefly Selected From Examples of The 12th And 13th Centuries in France & Italy
by Nesfield, William Eden
London: Day and Son, 1862. First edition. Hardcover. Rebacked with original spine and gilt decorated front cover laid down. Very good. Folio, 42 x 28 cm, 12 pages in text, 100 full-page plates drawn by the author with many drawn to scale, and with one chromolithograph by W.R. Tymms. Nesfield, a brother-in-law of Anthony Salvin, shared an office with Norman Shaw, a fellow-reviver of an "Old English" domestic vernacular style leading to the manner known as "Queen Anne." Nesfield?s sketches are chiefly of the major early Gothic cathedrals of Northern France, e.g. Amiens, Bayeux, Chartres and Sens, but his style of draughtsmanship was vivider than that of previous English architects who had drawn these cathedrals. Interior contents clean and bright, rubbing to corners and spine. (Inventory #: 3568)
