Author: GILBERT MCALLISTER AND E. MCALLISTER (EDS.)
Title: "Homes, Towns & Countryside. A Practical Plan for Britain. Edited by Gilbert & Elizabeth Glen McAllister [with many leading contributors]."
Description: "Batsford, " "8vo., First Edition, with 5 plates on 1 as frontispiece and very numerous plates on 62; cloth, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper. With fine wrap-around dustwrapper artwork by Sydney Jones. This is Batsford in the first flush of Victory, full of confidence as to how the nation should be rebuilt after the years of conflict. An evocative combination of seminar and symposium, it considers the role of the town in the national structure, the central importance of agriculture, the place of industry and with virtually every aspect of planning. Its panel of eminent contributors (drawn from architecture, industry, the countryside and the Church) makes good sense; how little of it we got right. A scarce and important Batsford, and very difficult to find in this condition."
Keywords: "batsford, architecture, town planning, countryside, miscellaneous"
