About the Authors
  • Hailed as 'one of the most important contributions to the social and intellectual history of England which has ever been made by a Cambridge man', Robert Willis's monumental architectural history of the University of Cambridge is here reprinted. Its unique collection of over three hundred plans, antique and specially commissioned engravings is alone sufficient to make this an indispensable work of reference on Cambridge architecture before the onset of the modern age. This selection from the Architectural History presents in a single volume the complete text relating to King's College and Eton College and features a new introduction by David Watkin, Professor Emeritus in the History of Architecture at the Department of Art History at Cambridge University.
