Architecture in Cambridge Examples of Architectural Styles from Saxon to Modern Times

by David Theodore Fyfe

Part of the Cambridge Library Collection - Cambridge Series

Architecture in Cambridge Examples of Architectural Styles from Saxon to Modern Times Synopsis

First published in 1942, Theodore Fyfe's book on Cambridge architecture was written to 'enable the visitor to Cambridge to realise the value of the Town and University for illustrating the sequence of styles in English architecture'. Including over fifty drawings of both famous and lesser-known Cambridge architectural sights, and a glossary giving clear definitions of technical architectural terms, the book remains a valuable guide for the modern visitor. The Introduction outlines the principal English architectural styles, from Romanesque to Gothic to Renaissance, the periods during which they flourished, and their significant characteristics. Fyfe then analyses over thirty selected Cambridge examples in detail, including a description of the Perpendicular Gothic style as exemplified on a grand scale by the world-famous King's College Chapel - 'the glory of Cambridge'.
