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)
