About the Authors
  • The Oxford bookseller and publisher John Henry Parker (1806–84), a supporter of the Tractarian movement and a friend of Cardinal Newman, was also a historian of architecture, whose two-volume Glossary of Terms Used in Grecian, Roman, Italian, and Gothic Architecture is also reissued in this series. In 1851, he published a volume on English domestic architecture from the Norman Conquest to 1300 by the antiquary Thomas Hudson Turner (1815–52), and on Turner's death he completed the second volume, on the fourteenth century, himself. Both volumes are highly illustrated with line drawings and plans. Volume 2 follows a similar plan, describing the rooms (such as halls, kitchens and chambers) common to domestic buildings, of whatever size, in the fourteenth century, and discussing their individual features and construction. The coverage of surviving buildings is organised by county, and there is a section on comparable buildings in France.
