Originally known as the Cappella Magna, the chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored it between 1477 and 1480. Since that time, the chapel has served as a place of both religious and functionary papal activity. Today it is the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is selected. The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior, and most particularly the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo.]

The Tudor and Jacobean House - a building history, Airs, Malcolm (foreword by Mark Girouard)
8 Airs, Malcolm (foreword by Mark Girouard) The Tudor and Jacobean House - a building history
Godalming Bramley Books 1998 1858338336 / 9781858338330 Pictorial boards Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Illustrated, large octavo, pp xii, 240, pictorial boards, a very good clean copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper which is lightly price-clipped. [The English country house in its landscaped setting was one of the most exciting and original developments of the 16th century. Liberated from the need to build for defence by the establishment of domestic peace and financed by a buoyant economy, the Tudor and Jacobean aristocracy indulged in a frenzy of competitive building which radically changed the face of the countryside. Stimulated by the Elizabethan Court, architecture became a matter of passionate interest and social rivalry, characterized by symbolism, allegory and fantasy. This study explores how the country house was designed and built. Using evidence from contemporary documents to bring the building site to life, it examines the building process, from the motives of the patron and the surveyors who designed them, to the problems that were involved in organizing and financing their projects. It sets out the factors that governed the choice of site, the selection and transport of materials, the processes of design and the methods of construction. It also considers the vital contribution of the individual craftsmen, reconstructing their working lives, including wage rates and living conditions.]

Very well illustrated, very large quarto, pp 298, the slightest of wear to the cloth, but a very good copy in a slightly worn dustwrapper. Very heavy - extra postage will be needed. [Formal gardens in the French style are often thought to be some of the most ambitious works ever created. Born of a taste for regularity and symmetry and a desire to tame nature, they are full of rich visual imagery and continue to inspire modern garden designers. This volume takes the reader on a tour through Europe and Russia - from Versailles in France and Quelez in Portugal to Peterhof in Russia. The book also expounds on the history of this style of gardening, from its beginnings in the Middle Ages to the present day, exploring who commissioned the gardens, who designed them and their purpose.]

Cabin Fever - Sheds  and Shelters, Huts and Hideaways, Boyer, Marie-France
15 Boyer, Marie-France Cabin Fever - Sheds and Shelters, Huts and Hideaways
London Thames & Hudson 1993 0500015759 / 9780500015759 Cloth Very Good Good 
Well illustrated, large square 8vo, pp 112, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper.[Intriguing and strangely magnetic, cabins fulfil the longing in all of us to indulge again in our childhood reveries of secret hideaways, built of branches and leaves or whatever is to hand; to enter our own private world; to commune with nature and with our own selves. Hidden in the forest, up in the treetops, by the side of still or moving water, down at the end of the garden, the cabin is the most magical of dwellings. Magical, but real too, as these photos from all over the world testify: fishing cabins in Maine; the shed in Wales to which Dylan Thomas retreated to write; hides built by wild duck hunters in France, Finnish saunas, and English beach huts. The search for solitude, the need to throw off the trappings of worldly life, has produced some of the world's most romantic and beguiling buildings. Brought together here, they remind us of that wilder side of human nature which we all recognize and perhaps seek to nourish more. Their mixture of charm, eccentricity and improvisation has truly universal appeal.]
