'...beautifully illustrated and packed with historical and architectural info...' -- Venue, April 14 2006
'A sorely needed and superbly executed book that satisfies not simply the discerning eye but the imagination too.' -- The Georgian, Spring 2004
This title is a comprehensive architectural guide to Bath, England's finest Georgian city. Full of new discoveries and lively descriptions of the city's notable buildings, the book features specially taken colour illustrations throughout and numerous easy-to-use walking maps. The great set-pieces of Bath - the famous Pump Room, The Circus, Royal Crescent - are embedded in a graceful urban landscape developed by a long succession of gifted local architects. The city's Roman roots are represented by the remains of its extraordinary baths, its medieval prosperity by the splendid Abbey. Exquisite villas and terraces on the surrounding hills add further variety. For all who share an interest in the buildings of Bath, from architect to historian, tourist to armchair traveller, this is a useful work.See all Product description

Because the book is printed in a narrow format the illustrations are squeezed and in the case of some of the line drawings the notations are difficult to read.
The book would have been so much easier to use if it had been produced in a more normal format (6" x 9"). The authorship is really excellent but the publisher should have given more thought to the readers' comfort.
