Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Documents the structure of the world's greatest timber buildings, and shows how the framer's craft has evolved over the past 1,000 years.

Book News Annotation:

For each period of English architecture, the author discusses several historic timber buildings representative of the time. He concludes that timber buildings can be dated based on the techniques employed for their construction. Includes some 380 line drawings, many of joinery. Appends chronological lists of the buildings' structural joints and decorative features, each of which is briefly described and illustrated by a drawing. A reprint of the 1980 Phillimore book.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"English Historic Carpentry", first published in 1980, remains the seminal book on historic timber buildings and their construction. The great contribution that Cecil Hewett made to architectural history was his proof that the methods of assembling timber buildings, particularly the joints used, follow a strict historical sequence, as datable as ceramics. Hewett is now recognized as the pioneer of a whole new technology in the dating of ancient timber buildings.

The popularity of timber framed houses in the United States has been rapidly growing over the last ten years. This book will have a special appeal to all those interested in this type of construction because of the extensive joinery illustrations that Hewett has incorporated into the text. This is an in-depth discussion of timber framing and the historical progression of techniques used in the field.
