Architect In History, Briggs, Martin S
1 Briggs, Martin S
Architect In History
UK Oxford at the Clarendon Press
1927 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition Good 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches 
?The object of this book is to claim for the architect the position in history that is his due, and to expose prevailing fallacies about his work. Up to the end of the Middle Ages the author deals with the evolution of the architect in Europe generally. During the Renaissance period he follows the architect's progress in Italy, France, and England, drawing largely on the lively pages of Vasari and other contemporary biographers. For the nineteenth century he has confined his attention to England. The numerous illustrations reproduce contemporary effigies, portraits, architectural drawings and many other subjects.? Book - in Very Good burgundy boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards and light bumping and light rubbing to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine. Contents, light browning to the free front and rear end paper and title pages, some pages still unopened otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound. Dust jacket - Good - some loss and wear to the edges and corners repaired to verso, some marking/grubbiness to the cream back ground. Size: 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches. "xii, 400 rough trimmed which includes an index". Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Architecture; Hardcover A298-1157 0.68

Architectural Supervision On Site, Macfarlane, A A
2 Macfarlane, A A
Architectural Supervision On Site
UK Applied Science Publishers
1973 0853345740 / 9780853345749 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition Good 9 inches tall by 5.75 inches 
?The architect's academic training places insufficient emphasis on his responsibility to see that his building design is well constructed in accordance with the drawings and sound building practice. His knowledge of methods of construction and materials to be used is often superficial with a lack of understanding of how these are evolved, made, assembled, handled, stored, protected, finished, react to exposure and use and how they ought to be maintained. This book is probably the first of its kind for it defines the architect's duties and responsibilities on the site and gives guidance to the architect's relations with client, builder, clerk of works and craftsmen in the various trades. It deals with the things to look for and how to find them, what questions to ask and of whom to ask them, what instructions to give and to whom to give them. Claims for negligence against architects are increasing and it is probable that many could have been avoided by better foresight and more penetrating inspections on site. This book provides answers to many of the problems and pitfalls likely to arise.? Contents : 1. Introduction 2. Preliminaries 3. Excavator and Drainlayer 4. Concretor 5. Bricklayer and Mason 6. Steelworker, Smith and Founder, Ironmonger 7. Claddings 8. Carpenter and Joiner 9. Roofer 10. Water Engineer and Plumber 11. Glazing 12. Heating and Ventilating 13. Services 14. Plasterer 15.
