Inigo Jones, the first English classical architect, was famous in his own time and was the posthumous sponsor of the Palladian movement of the eighteenth century. This authoritative and elegantly written book, first published in 1966, reassessed Jones's life and career, cleared away the myths of attribution that surrounded his work, and reassigned to him projects that had disappeared from his oeuvre. Summerson's classic text is enhanced by a foreword and notes by Sir Howard Colvin, an updated bibliography, and improved illustrations.
