Richard Norman Shaw (1831–1912) was the most fertile, representative, and influential British domestic architect of his time. This new edition of Andrew Saint’s best-selling book on Shaw and his work—hailed in its original version as “a masterpiece among architectural biographies” by the Evening Standard—features a completely revised text and new introduction and is generously illustrated with new color photographs, many specially commissioned.

“Outstanding. . . . A most readable biography as well as a scholarly assessment of Shaw’s work.”—Adam Fergusson, Sunday Times (on the original edition)

Andrew Saint is the General Editor of The Survey of London and the author of The Image of the Architect (1983), Towards A Social Architecture: The Role of School-Building in Post-War England (1987) and Architect and Engineer: A Study in Sibling Rivalry (2007)
