Ruins - Michael Felmingham; Rigby Graham;

Country Life, 1972, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Patch of loss at head of the lower panel otherwise a well presented copy.

The first four chapters are largely historical and cover ruins from the earliest times to the 19th century. The latter part of the book looks at ruins in our own time and those which we, through carelessness or neglect, have created; thus bringing the study of ruins up to the middle of the 20th century. In this collection are to be found not only Valle Crucis Abbey, the ring of Brodgar, Dun Dornadilla, Ragdale Old Hall and the cromlech at Pentre-Ifan, but also some very new ruins such as airfields, railway stations and allotments.

Size: 11½" x 8¾". 144 pages.
