By Elizabeth Williamson, Malcolm Higgs, Anne Riches
In the series: The Buildings of Scotland
The most comprehensive survey of Glasgow's architecture yet published,
it is arranged in the gazetteer form established by Pevsner's Buildings
Of England series. Documenting the development of the city's architecture
from pre-Roman times to 1990, it is a walk though Glasgow's history and up
and down virtually every street in the city. In short, it is the Glasgow
historian's Bible. Meticulously researched and astonishing in its wealth
and variety of detail, Glasgow is a scholarly but highly accessible
and enjoyable resource for the casual reader and the serious researcher.
Illustrated with 123 b/w photographs of the city's most important buildings
and monuments, it is essential reading for anyone interested in the city
and the architects and craftsmen and women who enriched it.
