Richard Norman Shaw (1831–1912) was the most fertile, representative, and influential British domestic architect of his time. This new edition of Andrew Saint’s best-selling book on Shaw and his work—hailed in its original version as “a masterpiece among architectural biographies” by the Evening Standard—features a completely revised text and new introduction and is generously illustrated with new color photographs, many specially commissioned.

“Outstanding. . . . A most readable biography as well as a scholarly assessment of Shaw’s work.”—Adam Fergusson, Sunday Times (on the original edition)
