An outstanding book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pevsner - The Early Life: Germany and Art (Hardcover)
Stephen Games's book is a clearly-written account of Pevsner's early career, based on extensive documentary and published research. It presents, in an authoritative and readable way, the fascinating story of Pevsner's family and scholarly life until his arrival in England. The drive which was so characteristic of him (I wrote my PhD thesis under his supervision) was evident from the start, and enabled him to overcome many personal and academic problems. We are greatly in Mr Games's debt, and await eagerly the publication of his second volume.
