First edition. As one of the principal members of the Arts and Crafts Movement Baillie Scott's influence in domestic architecture, interior design and the growth of garden city planning was enormous. By the date of the present publication his reputation as both an advocate and skilled exponent of the movement's tenets had borne fruit in the work of architects practising in Germany, Austria and America.
Baillie Scott's ideas on domestic architecture are combined perfectly in Houses and Gardens where a lucid text is complemented with a wealth of pictorial examples.
