Summary Note

The architect and designer A.W.N. Pugin, a strong advocate of Gothic Revival style, was best known for his designs for the interior of the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster), London; where he collaborated with Charles Barry. The two men appear to have worked in harmony, but their sons, Edward Pugin and Alfred Barry, differed strongly over the respective contributions of their fathers.


The title-page is inscribed in ink, 'Solomon A. Hart, Esq. R.A. with the authors Compliments.' Hart was Librarian of the Royal Academy 1864-81.
