    1. A quick and easy guide to a subsection of architectural history, complete with a series of illustrations one at the end of each relevant chapter showing how a typical house might have been added to and modified over the centuries Worth buying for that aspect alone, although it s also handy as a quick and easy reference guide while out and about, to supplement a library of extensive and specialised books.
