George Dance was a pioneering architect with an adventurous spirit who designed the first Neo-Classical building in England (All Hallows, London Wall), as well as the first Indian-style elevation (the City of London's Guildhall), introduced the circus and crescent to London town planning; invented the ammonite capital, designed a prototype art gallery, and made early use of structural iron and other technical innovations. This comprehensive catalogue of his architectural work also includes the drawings of the elder George Dance, architect to the City of London for more than 40 years whose major building is the Mansion House.
