Memoirs of the Life and Works of Sir Christopher Wren, with a Brief View of the Progress of Architecture in England, from the Beginning of the Reign of Charles the First to the End of the Seventeenth Century (Classic Reprint) by James Elmes (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Memoirs of the Life and Works of Sir Christopher Wren, With a Brief View of the Progress of Architecture in England, From the Beginning of the Reign of Charles the First to the End of the Seventeenth Century The following Memoirs, illustrative of the life and works of our greatest architect, were began by me nearly fourteen years ago, as introductory to a large work which I proposed to publish on the Cathedral of St. Paul, his greatest architectural performance. This being abandoned, and my drawings being engraved for ather publication, I then intended to reprint the Parentalia, with the new matter which I had collected as an appendix; but subsequent and important additions, and an attentive perusal of that part of Parentalia which relates to Sir Christopher Wren, induced me to attempt an enlarged and entirely new life.
