Scottish Architecture : From the Accession of the Stewarts to the Reformation, 1371-1560
From the ambitious cathedral and abbey churches to the smaller chapels, and from the great royal palaces to the lesser towerhouses, this volume in The Architectural History of Scotland series is a study of the full range of buildings raised between the late-fourteenth and mid-sixteenth centuries. Placing Scottish architecture within its wider European context, it begins by surveying and analysing the sources of the ideas which underlay the emergence of the country's distinctive late Gothic style, before looking in detail at the individual building types. Copiously illustrated with photographs, engraving and comparative plans of building types, this is the only comprehensive reference guide to the period's architectural history, and is essential reading for both the general and scholarly reader.
