To Build the Second City: Architects and craftsmen of Georgian Bristol



Architecturally, Bristol is often compared unfavourably to Bath. In this scholarly but entertaining and provocative study, Tim Mowl shows that Bristol has not only more Georgian buildings than its neighbour, but a finer and wider range of styles and types. Bristol, and Clifton in particular, the author argues, are the unexplored, undervalued treasure houses of eighteenth-century design. Architects and craftsmen considered include the remarkable Paty family, Charles Dyer, Richard Shackleton Pope, John Strahan and Charles Underwood. 235mm x 170mm 176pp 120 black & white illustrations ISBN 1 872971 26 1 hardback
