Prolemy Dean
Ashgate, 1999

Sir John Soane (1753-1837) was one of Britain's most inventive architects, whose achievements include the Bank of England. Making full use of the Soane Museum and country house archives, Ptolemy Dean examines ten country house projects. The drawings, sketches and letters which enable us to trace the process of design. With the author's own drawings in watercolor to illustrate Soane's use of light and space, and beautiful photographs by Martin Charles, this book offers an enthralling insight into the work of a great architect. An illustrated inventory, the first fully researched guide to Soane's country house practice, details an architectural legacy.
