'A short history of the changes and developments in English architecture from very early days down to the present time.  This small book should enable the interested boy or girl to ten and upwards to identify important buildings belonging to a particular period or style.  It also tries to awaken national pride in our many beautiful buildings of the past and to arouse interest in the future possibilities of English architecture.
Numerous small drawings help to explain the architectural terms, and there are also six reproductions of etchings and drawings by well-known artists, each illustrating a typical building in one period of English architecture.'
