Description - The Follies and Garden Buildings of Ireland by James Howley

This volume - the first to focus solely on follies and garden buildings in Ireland - recreates in word and image the wonder of these architectural oddities. James Howley examines buildings mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries and from all four provinces of Ireland, placing them in their architectural and historical contexts. Illustrated with recent photographs showing the detail and settings of the buildings in the 21st century, as well as older photographs, contemporary drawings and prints, and measured survey drawings of elevations and plans, the book makes a significant contribution to Irish 18th- and 19th-century architectural history.
