Brick and clay building in Britain
This edition includes an account of how bricks, brick files and terracotta have been made and used from medieval times to the present day. There is an illustrated glossary of brickwork where virtually every term is shown in photographs and diagrams and a chronological photographic survey ranges from the earliest survivors to the twentieth century. Finally there is an introduction to the use of unbaked earth in different locations in England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland and internationally. Appendices cover the Brick Tax, cavity walling and damp proof courses, the use of Header Bond in brickwork, and brickwork in Scotland and Ireland. The bibliography has been enlarged and brought up to date.
