On offer here is ‘Sir Christopher Wren, A.D. 1632-1723’, a bicentenary memorial volume commemorating the famous architect, and published under the auspices of the Royal Institute of British Architects by Hodder & Stoughton Limited in London in 1923. Sixteen pages of prefatory matter are followed by 280 pages of text, including more than 100 illustrations containing sketches, blueprints, facsimiles of letters, portraits, and other material. The book’s text consists of a collection of essays by various scholars on different aspects of Wren’s architecture, his influences, and his scientific interests.
The book is in good condition. The boards and spine are rubbed and stained in places, with fraying and tears to the corners. Gilt titling and designs are faded. The binding is solid. Page edges are dusty and a bit scuffed, and the top gilt edges are a bit faded. Page edges are also frayed and uneven due to the nature of the printing process. The reverse of the front free endpaper has some stamps affixed to it. Internally the book is in fine shape, with no tears or markings.
