lloyd, Nathaniel A History of English Brickwork With Examples And Notes Of The Architectural Use And Manipulation Of Brick From Mediaeval Times To The End Of The Georgian Period, With An Introduction By Sir Edward L. Lutyens

H. Greville Montgomery, 1925.

First edition. 4to. Publisher's original green cloth, decorated and lettered gilt. Profusely illustrated with 296 photographs and forty three drawings, mainly on large folding plates. A near fine copy, attractive externally with a little wear and a short closed tear to the head of the spine. Internally the plates are clean and fresh, though there is some foxing to the preliminary and closing pages of the text section.

Edwin Lutyens provides a eulogistic introduction to this celebration of English brickwork: "Mr Lloyd has done real service to a great English Tradition, and I earnestly hope that English Architects and Builders will take heed and benefit so that our England will become yet more beautiful, and the prevailing methods that so mar our Country will cease; and that the influence of this book will once more help to produce those beauties that were ours in times - alas - gone by".
