Inigo Jones, the first English classical architect, was famous in his own time and was the posthumous sponsor of the Palladian movement of the eighteenth century. This authoritative and elegantly written book, first published in 1966, reassessed Jones’s life and career, cleared away the myths of attribution that surround his work, and reassigned to him projects that had disappeared from his oeuvre. Summerson’s classic text is enhanced by a new foreword and notes by Howard Colvin, updated bibliography, and improved illustrations.

John Summerson, a brilliant writer and lecturer on British architectural history, was curator of Sir John Soane’s Museum in London. Howard Colvin, emeritus fellow of St. John’s College, Oxford, is the author of Architecture and the After-Life and A Biographical Dictionary of British Architecture, 1600–1840, both published by Yale University Press.
