Pevsner's famous designations E.E. and Perp. are among the terms clearly explained in this informative glossary drawn from the vocabulary of the "Buildings of England, Scotland, Wales" and "Ireland" volumes. And anyone who has wondered how a headstop relates to a hoodmould or what a squich looks like will find their understanding and enjoyment of architecture enhanced by knowledge of its components, styles, and ornament. To name is to know and beginners will soon find that familiarity with the names quickly helps them understand the similarities and differences between the buildings and styles they see. At the same time, the breadth of the fields covered will be useful even to experts
