Описание: This profusely illustrated volume by a noted British architect and authority in the field focuses on monumental architecture constructed from 1730 to 1875, a period the author feels embodies the best in neoclassical architecture. Included are outstanding structures built in Great Britain and Ireland during four different phases - Roman Palladian (1730-1780), Greco-Roman (1780-1820), Greek (1820-1840), and neo-Grec and Italian (1840-1875). Beginning with the achievements of the great Georgian architect Sir William Chambers, and extending to the work of such major Victorian classicists as C. R. Cockerell and Harry Lonsdale Elmes, the buildings pictured and described here include a roster of masterpieces: The Customs House, Dublin; The Bank of England, Liverpool; Newgate Prison, London; The British Museum, London; The National Gallery, Edinburgh; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; St. George's Hall in Liverpool; the Landsdown Tower, Bath, and many more. Over 175 line drawings and halftones illustrate Sir Albert's detailed, perceptive and informative text. Enhanced with a new Introduction by H. Stafford Bryant, this classic study belongs in the libraries of architects, students of architectural history, and interested general readers.

Описание: In a series of letters to her parents, 15-year-old Pamela Andrews recounts her tribulations as a servant in the house of Mr. B. The infatuated master's repeated attempts at seduction―foiled again and again by the quick-witted maid―lead to Pamela's abduction and imprisonment in a remote country house, where the unlikely couple truly come to know one another. Samuel Richardson, one of England's early novelists, published Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded anonymously in 1740. The first bestseller in English fiction, Pamela excited a storm of controversy, in which it was both denounced as thinly veiled pornography and praised for setting an example of righteous conduct. Its publication marks a defining moment in the development of the modern novel, in which the genre suddenly and irrevocably developed the potential for moral seriousness. Three centuries later, Richardson's novel remains an engaging tale of psychological complexity.
