Pevsner Architectural Guides. New to the Buildings of Ireland series is a comprehensive guide covering the historically rich and nuanced territory of Central Leinster. Ernest Gimson was described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as ‘the greatest of the English artist-craftsmen’.

The ultimate guide to Cornwall . Uniting two classic guides by Pevsner and John Betjeman, Beacham has left no fernbanked lane or secret drive unexplored. It was falling apart, but I always took it with me on an architectural jaunt, together with my father John Betjeman’s Shell Guide to Cornwall, of course. The two books were good companions.

Sir Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-83), one of the most learned and stimulating twentieth-century writers on art and architecture, began his career in Germany.

Cornwall was the first volume in the Buildings of England series, published in 1951.  This extensively revised edition brings much new research to bear on the history of the county’s buildings, beginning with its rich prehistoric remains and early Christian structures and monuments including numerous Celtic crosses and holy wells.  The high towers of the village churches, manor houses such as Cotehele, and the distinctive white-walled cottages in the villages and fishing towns contribute to Cornwall’s unique, picturesque landscape.  Cornwall is home to major country houses, including the spectacular castle of St Michael’s Mount, as well as the greatest English cathedral of the Victorian age at Truro. The architectural legacy of industry is also of considerable importance, from the net houses of the fishing industry to the tapering engine-house chimneys of the tin mines.
Reviews about Cornwall (Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England) (2):
Ishnsius
It is ok. What information I can find on Cornwall in other sources is not much. This book added a lot about what was going on there in times past. It is weak on family names and lines but so are the archives in England for the period from the 1800's back to the 1600's. There is nothing about the original peoples who populated the area.
I must say that what the book does cover is very great and it will remain part of my library.

Interesting book on the history and geographical location of Cornwall
