Illustrated with Black and White plates. 363 pages The start point for this book is the contention that the Victorian age, which we think of as the great age of Gothic, was so shot through with the influence of the classical past that we should think instead of Victorian art and architecture as the continuing flow forward of two stylistic streams - the Gothic and the Classical - side by side.
