About the Author

Dorothy Stroud was an expert on 18th and early 19th century architecture, and in particular on Soane, and was Assistant Curator of the famous Sir John Soane's Museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields for many years: this house contains his priceless collection of works of art, books and architectural drawings. She wrote a number of other books including Capability Brown; George Dance, Architect, 1741-1825; Humphry Repton; and Henry Holland, His Life and Architecture.


'An important and welcome book on a great architect, on whom no comprehensive monograph has recently been published...Of [the latest] fruits of Soanean scholarship, Stroud's book is by far the best.' Burlington Magazine 'An invaluable reference work' Colin Amery in the Financial Times 'Handsomely illustrated and scrupulously researched, this classic work reveals the energy and versatility of our finest architect after Wren.' Independent on the second edition '...a splendid new revised paperback edition of Dorothy Stroud's Sir John Soane, Architect...This must stand as the definitive study of the famous architect's life and works.' Contemporary Review on the second edition
