Walter Ison's classic book, celebrating the architecture of Georgian Bath, was first published in 1948 having been researched and written against the background of a soot-blackened and bomb-damaged city. It was to provide the authorities with powerful encouragement to prepare the damage caused in the war and so preserve the magnificent Georgian heritage of the city. This study remains unsurpassed for its completeness and accuracy and, despite several republications, is now out of print. Ison examines the chronology of Bath's Georgian buildings, sets them against the social world for which they were conceived, and looks at the architects and builders who created them. This hardback volume is a facsimile of the 1948 edition but with a new introductory Foreward by Michael Forsyth, author of the recently published Pevsner Architectural Guide to Bath.
