Vol XLI The Diaries of Sanderson Miller of Radway
Sanderson Miller (1716-80) was a gentleman architect, an amateur pioneer of significance in the development of the Gothic Revival during its delightful and inventive Georgian period. He is best known for the sham castles on his own estate at Radway in Warwickshire and at Wimpole and Hagley, but his work also included the design of the Great Hall at Lacock Abbey, the new Hagley Hall and the Shire Hall in Warwick. This volume contains the annotated texts of the only two of Miller’s diaries to have survived, throwing new light on the development of his architectural practice in the context of the lively demands of his social life and the pressing need to manage his own agricultural estate.
The volume also contains a full catalogue of Miller’s work, well illustrated with 46 plates, and will be of value not only to architectural historians but also to all those with an interest in the details of everyday life in the eighteenth century.
