In this fascinating biography, Roderick Graham follows Adam's life and career from schooldays in Edinburgh through study in Italy and the establishment of his architectural practice in London. It explains his passionate ambition, not only to excel as an architect, but to be accepted as a gentleman in that most snobbish period of our history. No one contributed more to the artistic eminence of 'Age of Elegance' than Robert Adam (1728-92), the pre-eminent architect of his day whose expertise and imagination extended also to interior design, furniture and garden design. His legacy has echoed through design ever since, his name synonymous with elegance, the Enlightenment, of the best features of the eighteenth century.
