First edition. Minor abrasion on front jacket panel, 1/2 inch tear on rear jacket edge repaired with clear tape on reverse. 2008 Large Hardcover. 352 pp. Color photography by Martin Charles, plans and reproductions of historical illustrations throughout. The Parsonage is one of England's best-loved traditional building types. This book draws on new research to portray the history of the parsonage during the critical years of the early nineteenth century - a time when the design of the small English house changed dramatically from that of the typically elegant but restrained Georgian villa to create the lively, original residences of the gothic revival. Behind every stage of this transition was that figure of genius, A.W.N. Pugin, whose work in the 1840's ment that such houses would never be the same again. Architect and historian Timothy Brittain-Catlin illustrates his pioneering study with a wealth of previously unpublished historical drawings and a beautiful selection of new work by leading architectural photographer Martin Charles.
