Summary "This book describes one of the great sources of British architectural history: the collection of nearly five hundred drawings from the office of Sir Christopher Wren, today housed at All Souls College, Oxford. The collection reveals how Wren went about designing one of the largest buildings in Christendom ئ St Paul's Cathedral; how he rebuilt fifty parish churches after the Great Fire of London; and how he furnished England with some of its best-loved public buildings, including Hampton Court Palace, the Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich, and the Library at Trinity College, Cambridge. The drawings also shed light on the internal workings of Wren's office. Geraghty introduces us to Wren's team of assistants and draughtsmen, including the young Nicholas Hawksmoor, who spent the first twenty years of his career in Wren's office."--Publisher's website.
