The Architectural History of the University of Cambridge and of the Colleges of Cambridge and Eton: Volume 4, The Architectural Drawings Summary


The Architectural History of the University of Cambridge and of the Colleges of Cambridge and Eton: Volume 4, The Architectural Drawings by Robert Willis

Robert Willis' monumental architectural history of the University of Cambridge, first published in 1886 in a revised and extended edition by his nephew J. W. Clark, was hailed as 'one of the most important contributions to the social and intellectual history of England which has ever been made by a Cambridge man.' These fully illustrated volumes are here reprinted in their entirety, with a modern introduction by Professor David Watkin. Although Willis and Clark has always been recognised by those interested generally in the conservation of buildings and in the historic development of architectural style and taste, its unique collection of over three hundred plans, antique and specially commissioned engravings is alone sufficient to make this an indispensable work of reference on Cambridge architecture before the onset of the modern age.
