Format: Hardcover
By far the best Architectural glossary I have ever seen. A vital resource for translators of foreign language books or articles about architecture because of the rich vocabulary in English of architectural features and styles. It is very well illustrated with forty-one helpful figures of architectural features and fifty-three coloured plates divided into Ecclesiastical, Public and Domestic mainly of buildings. Front and back jacket illustrations.

Travel guides I visit local buildings wherever I go and just learning a few technical terms from Pevsners Glossary make it easier to look at and hopefully understand, the details on show, such as the difference between a Gargoyle and a Grotesque?

smaller enough to be carried in the pocket. Easily recognised drawings and the written description is not to complicated to understand.

I chose 4 stars because the quality was very good, but it was an old book which had been superseded by a more recent version. I would have expected this to have been mentioned.

Having owned a few architectural guides, I find the alphabetical layout and content of Pevsner's Architectural Glossary is just about right as accompaniment during visits to historic sites.
