Architecture Without Kings: The Rise of Puritan Classicism Under Cromwell
A general survey of what was being built in England and Wales during the Commonwealth years, 1642-60, using the career of architect Inigo Jones (1573-1652) as a framework to demonstrate the gradual move from rich chaos to dull order. Covers the stark churches, the emerging architects of the Puritan order, country houses, London, the universities, gardens, and four large regions. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs and drawings. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
