The Palladians by John Harris (RIBA Drawings Series; Trefoil Books 1981) studies the group of English architects who shaped the course of 17th–18th-century English architecture.
The Palladians represents a unique ‘double first’ in architectural literature. Until now there has been no modern account of the group of English architects, including some of the greatest names of the age, who, as followers of Palladio, in turn helped to shape the course of English architecture during the early seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Never before has such an authoritative study been based on the original working drawings of the architects concerned.
