About the Authors
  • First published in 1936, as the second edition of a 1922 original, this book forms part two of a three-volume series on the area of architectural building construction. The text presents a discussion of the elements of construction in two different types of structure, developing the examination of basic building processes found in volume one. The structures discussed are 'A semi-detached suburban house' and 'A town warehouse'. Numerous illustrative figures are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of architecture and the building process.
