Three volumes, large folio (16 x 12 inches). Profusely illustrated throughout with architectural drawings, renderings, and black-and-white photographs. Original cloth; original pictorial dust jackets. Volume I: Country-Houses. Volume II: Gardens, Delhi, Washington. Volume III: Public Buildings, Etc. Lutyens is, with Christopher Wren, England's greatest architect, and the Lutyens Memorial edition celebrates his large body of work. These volumes were first published in 1950, at the rise of the Modernist movement when Lutyens' work seemed to look backward. This 1984 edition was required when that edition had become exceedingly rare, and fashion had once against turned to recognize Lutyens as the master that he was. Minor handling wear, generally a very fine set Limited edition, one of 1,500 sets (after the 1950 first edition). Bookseller Inventory #
