3.0 out of 5 stars Not getting better 23 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This series is becoming disappointing. This recent version says little about places of worship other than Christian. There is some good architecture there. Also the price is getting beyond pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Detail, Accessible Style 1 April 2000
By Joyce C. Gibb - Published on
"The Buildings of England: Lincolnshire" is incredibly richly packed with detail, a gazetter describing virtually every community in the shire. For each is given a bit of the history of its development, and a vivid description of the place as it exists now. These word sketches are filled with historical and architectural information, and far from being dry accounts, the writers have presented their material in a way that lets the reader really "see" what is there. The introductory material includes sections on the geology of the area, its social and industrial archaeology, plus chapters on churches, secular buildings, and lesser rural buildings. Within the gazetter section, one or more "Perambulations" are offered for the larger towns and cities, charmingly detailed walking tours that point out each feature of interest. There are many line drawings of construction details and floor plans, plus 130 excellently clear black and white photographs of structures from the ancient to the modern. Of additional interest to a student of history or architecture is an extensive glossary and also a listing of sources and suggested further readings. The Introduction is titled "The Pleasures of Lincolnshire" and this volume is certainly that. Any trip to Lincolnshire would be greatly enriched by its guidance, and indeed it is so descriptive it can almost stand in lieu of actually being there! The authors clearly write from an enormous fund of knowledge, and their expertise and elegant presentation make this without question a Five-Star book.
