James Gibbs remains one of England's most influential and respected architects. His legendary 1728 folio includes perspectives and blueprints for such magnificent commissions as London's St. Martin in the Fields - the standard for many churches that followed - the Senate House of the University of Cambridge, plus fine drawings of marble cisterns, iron gates, funeral monuments and other icons of the British skyline.
This facsimile volume includes full elevations and plans, but also architectural elements - friezes, statues, ornamentation, doorways, fireplaces, gates and other elements. Also includes a facsimile list of the original edition subscribers featuring many major names and influential people of the day.

Very speedily delivered and excellent value for 16.99 for such a highly illustrated book. It would be nice to have a contemporary Introduction putting the book in its context and explaining its impact at the time of publication
