Batsford. 15s. net.)-The authors divide the time covered by their book into three periods, the Formative (1666-1720), Middle or Palladian (1720-1760), Refined or Formal Classic (1760-1820). These they proceed to describe with an abundance of illustrations both of the pen and pencil. This is a volume of peculiar interest to Londoners.
