Library Journal - Library Journal
Mansbridge has compiled an extensive inventory of buildings, bridges, and monuments designed and executed by Nash, whose career is highlighted by his work at Regent's Park, Regent Street, and Trafalgar Square. John Summerson, who wrote the introduction, adds that the list is too generous, for it includes many Nash-like buildings. Nonetheless, the catalog is filled with clear, detailed photographs of Nash's existing buildings and projects and sketches or drawings of those projected, destroyed, or unrealized. The catalog is arranged by the building's date of completion, and each listing includes a brief summary of the project and its significance. A brief biographical summary of the life and career of Nash, an alphabetical index of clients and patrons, a gazetteer and map listing the location of existing works, and a glossary of architectural terms are also included. A delightful addition to any collection.-- Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
