The classic reference work on cast iron decoration.

In the nineteenth century there was an amazing flowering of ironwork forms, mass produced and widely distributed, but of extreme variety and richness of design. Too often they have been overlooked, or referred to mistakenly as "wrought iron."

E. Graeme Robertson's interest began decades ago with the realization that cast iron was being destroyed because its aesthetic value was not recognized. To remedy this situation he wrote a number of books on Australian ironwork and then, with his daughter Joan, traveled all over the world to compile this superb photographic inventory of the forms taken by cast iron ornamentation, its national variations, its relationship to architecture, and its contribution to the attractiveness of buildings.

Supported by introductory texts, glossary, and bibliography, Cast Iron Decoration will be equally valuable to architects, art historians, and designers—and to anyone who cares for our cultural heritage. 521 illustrations.
