A large format volume of 192 pages. 320 colour photographs. 1 map. Medieval spires rising over bustling market places; half-timbered Elizabethan inns next to Georgian town halls; a busy high street with views over quiet countryside: these are some of the images conjured up by the phrase'an English country town', Robin Morrison reveals that the reality is no less enchanting than the dream. His travels took him to every corner of England, and the photographs provide not only superb views of each town's monuments, from castles, abbeys and bridges to railway stations and corn exchanges, but also offer glimpses of daily life. Anthony Quiney's stimulating introduction surveys the development of country towns and explains not simply what they look like, but why. His commentaries on the pictures combine the authority of an architectural historian with a long-standing interest in the relationship between buildings and the societies that produced them. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.0 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****.
