Description:     

This delightful book describes the symbolism of real-world architecture, as well as architecture described in fiction, myth and folklore. Lethaby believed that architecture reflected the macrocosm. He speculated that many of the seemingly ornamental details of classical buildings actually represented aspects of nature. It is a book to be read in parallel with Ruskin’s Seven Lamps of Architecture for anyone who seeks to investigate further the esoteric concepts of Architecture, Architect, and Builder and Mason.
Two reviews of his work are worth considering, that of D. van der Plaat, The Significance of the "temple idea" in 'William Lethaby's Architecture, Mysticism and Myth (1891)', NCAW, 2002, 1(2) and that of V. Goryunov et al, 'Architecture, Mysticism and Myths in the Works of Outstanding Architect William Richard Lethaby', Procedia Engineering, 2015, 117:825-831.
This edition includes the completion and generation of footnotes and of a table of about 400 references, the addition of 90 more and a list of Mr. Lethaby’s works.
