9781873394762: Modern Practical Masonry

This work provides a clear and simple guide to the subject, based on meticulous and beautiful drawings. Organized in three sections, it includes chapters on construction details; methods of working particular structural shapes; both basic and advanced geometry and setting-out. It also includes forms and tables omitted from later editions to be used as templates for costing and estimating work. These are as relevant today as they were in the 1920s. It includes a new introduction by Christopher Weeks.

About the Author:

Edmund George Warland was Chief Lecturer on Masonry and Geometry for Masons at the London County Council School of Building in Brixton (founded in 1904 and now part of London South Bank University). From 1928 onward, he was an active member of the Institution of Structural Engineers, particularly during the 1930s, and was for a time chair of the Institution's Lancashire and Cheshire Branch.

Review:

In the specialised and relatively small-scale field of stonemasonry, EG Warland's Modern Practical Masonry has always been regarded as the pre-eminent textbook. For someone just entering the stone trade, or for an interested observer, Hill and David [Practical Stone Masonry] is probably the best starting point. However, it makes no attempt to compete with Warland for breadth of geometrical content, and the latter's status as the bible of the trade remains unchallenged. It is good to have it available once more in hardback form. Cornerstone, SPAB The role of Modern Practical Masonry is note to celebrate the cornice, but rather to train architects, builders, mason, stonecutters and contractors in how to incorporate traditional forms , such as the cornice, and to incorporate traditional logic with modern construction methods.
