The Lives of British Architects from William of Wykeham to Sir William Chambers

Pictures and short extracts from The Lives of British Architects from William of Wykeham to Sir William Ch ambers by E. Beresford Chancellor, M.A., F.R.Hist.Soc., 1909.

I have marked these images as not for commercial use: the author lived from 1868 to 1937, according to the Library of Congress catalogue, so that copyright expires in 2007 (70 years after the author’s death) but the images may have separate copyrights.

This book seems to have been published simultaneously in America and the UK, before 1923, which would make it out of copyright; in any case, photographs taken before 1957 in England by an English photographer are out of copyright.
