A Manual of Historic Ornament
Exceptionally comprehensive, easy-to-use guide surveys the evolution of historic ornament in architecture and the applied arts--from primitive ornaments of Oceania, Egypt, and Assyria to a Gothic doorway in Amiens, the tomb of Lorenzo de Medici, and a classic early-nineteenth-century sofa by Thomas Hope. Hundreds of the author's line illustrations depict designs typical of many periods of style. Unabridged reprint of the 6th edition (1948) of A Manual of Historic Ornament, originally published in 1899 by B. T. Batsford, Ltd., London. Over 700 b/w illustrations. 16 plates of photographs.
