Brick Ornament and Its Application: Parts 1,2,3, & 4 - Trade Catalogue

£39.99

Product description

There are enthusiasts whose interest in brickwork, its many different styles and applications, is a life-long passion.  To any of these, this late Victorian catalogue/manual offers a wealth of information.  In his Preface, James Brown states "A good brick is acknowledged on all hands to be the best material for building purposes", and his book certainly contains details of every conceivable type of brick that might be required by any self-respecting Architect, Quantity Surveyor or even Gentleman Builder, illustrated with brown-tinted lithoplates. 

Our copy is the 1896 edition, apparently re-bound in blue cloth with gilt title on the spine. The original paper cover has been ingeniously reused to provide the title on the front cover, as photographed. Almost no exterior signs of wear or use.  Inside, binding is tight, all pages clean and bright.  Eminently collectable cataloque.
