Ebook description:

John Henry Parker’s remarkably timeless dictionary of structure, first revealed in 1846, turned so successful that he continued to revise it for a number of years. A profusely illustrated handbook that’s priceless as a reference or as a transportable information on visits to historic buildings, this authoritative glossary of almost 500 phrases utilized in Greek, Roman, Italian, and Gothic structure stays extremely instructive and informative. Accurate engravings complement many of the creator’s incisive descriptions — from a buttress in Glastonbury Abbey to zig-zag mouldings in a Norman doorway. Extended entries cowl arches, home windows, tombs, and different architectural components; whereas shorter notes outline much less generally used phrases comparable to cavetto, dado, and embrasure. An indispensable reference for architects and college students of structure, the textual content features a topographical index to the illustrations, figuring out the numerous British cathedrals, castles, and parish church buildings used as examples
