Product Overview

Although more than a century has passed since the end of the Victorian era, the great achievements of the period 1837-1901 are grossly undervalued. Phrases such as 'Victorian monstrosity' are bandied by many who ought to know better. This robustly argued and beautifully illustrated book shows that the Victorians produced confident, colorful, rumbustiously eclectic architecture, and that they went further than anyone since Roman times to potty-train Urban Man. The author deals with the palette of styles available to the Victorians, unprecedented building-types, new materials, ecclesiastical buildings, the responses of a vital society to contemporary challenges, and puts the built fabric firmly within the context of the intellectual complexities of the age.
