A Lust for Window Sills - Harry Mount

Little, Brown, 2008, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Gently bruised at head of spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the DJ. A pleasant copy.

A Lover's Guide to British Buildings from Portcullis to Pebble Dash. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “From soaring Victorian railway stations to Edwardian terraces, from Perpendicular churches to Strawberry Hill Gothick, Britain has an architecture unrivalled in fertility, invention and heart-stopping beauty. And, with a stack of cultural references from Chaucer to EastEnders, an eye for a Georgian cornice and some very strong feelings about window sills, Harry Mount could not be better qualified to survey it. A plum-packed Christmas pudding of a book, this brilliant personal odyssey through our shared architectural heritage is as informative on literature and the British national character as it is on buildings; it is erudite, inspiring and enormously entertaining.”
