ARCHITECTURE;

ΤΟ

A Series of Questions and Answers explaining in simple language the Principles of Architecture from the Earliest Times.

Uniform with the STEPPING-STONE to KNOWledge.

This is an admirably-conceived book admirably written.'
NATIONAL SOCIETY'S MONTHLY PAPER.

'Although compressed into so small a compass, this volume is calculated to prove a valuable aid to beginners and a useful little work of reference for more advanced students. As such we heartily recommend it, for the Author has done his work carefully.' WEEKLY REVIEW.

'We cordially recommend this Stepping-stone to the notice of all to whom is committed the training of young minds of both sexes, believing that Architecture may be made a very interesting subject of instruction to children, so as to be of service to them in after-life.' ART JOURNAL.

'It is certain that if some general idea of Architecture were to be given in our schools our young people would be provided with an inexhaustible source of pleasure; and because early impressions are often nearly indelible, a conscientious endeavour should be made to render them exactly correct. Mr. MITCHELL has evidently taken great pains to make his Stepping-stones trustworthy. Both student and builder cannot be otherwise than benefited by an early knowledge of Architecture, and we earnestly recommend its study in schools.' BUILDER.

"This publication, however, may also prove serviceable to some who are more advanced.' BUILDI NEWS.

'On more grounds than one we are glad to welcome this e book. ...So far as it goes it will give the learner a real knowledge of his subject.. ...It is a good book in itself, and will therefore be a real boon for the class of schools for which especially it has been written.... Whether right or wrong in particular cases, the Author has grasped the essential distinctions between the styles of which he treats, and thus he has furnished to the learner a method which may enable him to find his way without much difficulty through the most intricate questions relating to Gothic Architecture.'
