9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Dale W. Slusser on August 27, 2008
Format: Paperback
I have been waiting years for this reprint of Gibb's classic architectural book, which influenced many eighteenth and nineteenth century designers and builders. Until this reprint, the only available copies of this book were priced from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Kudos to Dover Publications for again making this book available to the common folk! The printing and clarity of the engravings are superb.

This is filled with page after page of sketches illustrating the details of the woodwork and architecture of the time period. A great resource for writers!

By David Arbogast on November 29, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of a very long list of reprints of historic architectural treatises by Dover. With excellent line quality, the drawings are very clear and crisp. For those who are unfamiliar with James Gibbs, he was one of the better-known eighteenth century architects in England who followed in the train of Christopher Wren. This book presents his drawings of his notable works as well as alternative designs which were not constructed for various reasons. For example, his famous church of St. Martin in the Fields in London is shown with two alternate designs of round churches.

I recommend this book for architectural historians and conservators, especially those interested and/or engaged with eighteenth-century architecture both in England and in colonial America.
