About the Authors
  • First published in 1817, this highly influential study by Thomas Rickman (1776–1841) provides a classic overview of English medieval architecture. A devotee of the Gothic style, Rickman forged a successful career as an architect of Anglican churches, in the face of criticism from his Quaker brethren. This study is founded on the attention to detail and delight of a true enthusiast, drawing on knowledge of some five hundred buildings across the British Isles. Describing Greek and Roman influences before delineating English architecture since the Norman Conquest, Rickman presents a compelling narrative of architectural styles and precedents. Illustrated with a number of detailed drawings, the work ends with short entries, organised by county, on notable cathedrals, churches and abbeys. Introducing terminology and classifications that are still used today, the book quickly became an essential reference work for architectural students and practitioners. This reissue is of the first edition.
