This authoritative and now classic work of reference on the history of British architecture contains biographical information on some 2,000 architects who practiced in England, Scotland, and Wales from the time of Inigo Jones (1573-1650) to that of William Burn (1789-1870) and Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860). The third edition of what began in 1954 as A Biographical Dictionary of English Architects 1600-1840, it now includes 150 new entries.

"[This book], perhaps Colvin`s best known work, is now in its revised and enlarged third edition. The volume is the standard reference work for all known architects practicing from the time of Inigo Jones to the end of the Georgian period. . . . The possibilities for research and cross reference that the dictionary provides cannot be overestimated."-Dana Arnold, The Architects` Journal

"[An] indispensable book for any architecture historian, professional and amateur."-Colin Amery, Financial Times

"A definitive work of reference, but also extraordinarily absorbing, a book to savor again and again."-Linda Colley, The Observer
