About the Author:

Lawrence Weaver began his working life at an architectural practice in Bristol as a sales representative selling a line of architectural fixtures and fittings. He moved on to become the London representative of a firm of ironfounders, Lockerbie and Wilkinson, who made cast-iron ware for the building trade. One of his first tasks was to revise and redesign their catalogue. Part of their trade was, naturally, rainwater goods; hopper heads, downpipes, bends and so on, plain and decorated. This appears to have stimulated his fascination for leadwork, and his sales rounds in early twentieth-century London must have given him a wonderful opportunity to see many at first hand. His interest expanded to encompass all forms of historical leadwork and he began to diligently track down and photograph examples, many of which were used to illustrate English Leadwork: Its Art and History.

Review:

The book ... has so much to offer the historian, conservator, leadworking student and anyone with an interest and passion in one of the most neglected areas of historic building conservation. SPAB News Without doubt, this is a classic book, and the new facsimile edition by donhead is welcome. This publication will be useful for training the sensibilities of both craftsman and conservator. As a seminal work for the architect and historian, it sets out superbly the research and scholarship of a century ago. It has a comprehensive bibliography of English leadwork by subject category. Context It offers a wealth of guidance and information to anyone concerned with replicating or renewing the original detail in old worked lead. Building Engineer
