Blue hardcover with title in silver on spine. Glassine dustjacket. Condition: Very good, with just a hint of shelfwear to covers. Binding sound, no inscripitons. Dustjacket condition: Good with general shelfwear. 275pp. Many b/w illustrations.This book is concerned with the works of Sir Joseph Paxton, rather than the story of his personal life or the unique relationship between Paxton and his employer, the sixth Duke of Devonshire. This book analyses Paxton's own works in the medium of garden, building and landscape and his influence upon the mid 19th century scene. Rather than listing the works chornologically, they are arranged into groups. For example, Paxton the Gardener, or Paxton's Glass Buildings.
