Description : Excerpt from The Civil Engineer and Architects Journal: From October, 1837, to December, 1838 Mining has presented several novel features, of which the more remarkable have been the utilization of anthracite coal, the application of the hot blast, and the introduction of asphalte. Little more as yet has been done with regard to the employment of this latter, than laying down some experimental pavements, which appear to have worn well hitherto. As an aid to the progress of mining, we may instance the extension of schools for instruction in that branch, to which we shall have farther occasion to allude in a subsequent part of this review.

Description : Excerpt from The Civil Engineer and Architect's Journal, Vol. 2: Scientific and Railway Gazette, 1839 Another year has been added to our labours, and it is again a pleasant duty to lay before our readers a brief account of the progress of the two professions, to the service of which we are devoted. It will naturally be expected that in a year of severe financial embarrassment, succeeding also to one so fertile in important results as was the last, there must necessarily be a falling off in the amount of what would otherwise have been effected, and a delay in the execution of many works, the completion of which is thereby retarded. Our own exertions, however, we have not suffered to flag under circumstances so dispiriting, but trust that so far as has depended on us, the present volume is worthy of its predecessor, and of the patronage with which our endeavours have been crowned. In considering the general features of architecture, we find that the invasion of the Renaissance style, which we announced last year, has actually occurred, but has singularly been accompanied with, or rather smothered by, a resuscitated taste for Elizabethan external and internal decoration. Considerable attention has also been devoted to the early antiquities or Moresque architecture. Our own ecclesiastical antiquities, we are happy to mention with praise, have been chosen as the special object of enquiry by a Society of Clergymen at Oxford, and thus we are led to hope for an improvement in taste, in a quarter which hitherto has had but too great a part in producing the present degeneracy. A striking and interesting circumstance to every well wisher of the arts, is the great zeal with which both associated bodies and individual members of the profession have engaged in the struggle for maintaining the true principles of competition. Among these cases have been the Nelson Testimonial, St. George's Hall Liverpool, and the Royal Exchange, in the still pending contest respecting which latter, we believe we may say with truth, " Quorum pars maxuma fui." On learning the extraordinary attempt to impose a tax of a guinea on applicants, for copies of the Instructions of the Committee, we immediately obtained copies both of the instructions and the plans, and left them at our office for the free use of any applicant-u course of conduct for which we feel an abundant reward, in the vote of thanks unanimously bestowed on us by the Manchester Architectural Society. From these exertions hitherto, no immediate fruit has resulted, but much has been already attained from the influence which they have had in awakening the public mind from its lethargy, and calling its power to a subject so importantly affecting the national glory and the general taste. Great progress has been made this year in bringing the accessary science of geology to bear upon architectural pursuits, and with a success which must have an influence on the future progress of each respectively. Government issued a commission, composed of geologists and architects, to examine the quarries of England, for the purpose of ascertaining the slove best fitted for the construction of the new Houses of Parliament. This commission has produced a report which must long be a standard of information to the profession, and a valuable model in future enquiries. The Government has also formed a Museum of Economic Geology, attached to the department of Woods and Forests, in which the commissioners specimens are collected, and to which future accessions will ho made. Special courses of lectures on the connection of these two subjects have been delivered by eminent geologists: at the Royal Institute of British Architects by G. F. Richardson, (reported in our Journal), and at the Architectural Society, by E. W. Brayley, jun. Great attention is also paid to these subjects in the several faculties of civil engineering. Although not yet brought into immediate connection with architecture, we ...

Description : Historicism, a reliance on inspiration by styles of the past, was the dominant aspect of Victorian architecture. The individual architect's response to earlier styles, however, varied widely, and one of the hallmarks of a creative career was the architect's handling of his chosen precedents. This study presents the largely unpublished work of seven English architects, tracing influences on their individual styles, and provides a cross section of some of the most characteristic themes and qualities of Victorian architecture. The seven architects included are William Burn, Philip and P.C. Hardwick, Sydney Smirke, J.I. Pearson, G.F. Bodley, Alfred Waterhouse, and Edwin Lutyens. Social, technological, and functional aspects of architecture during this period are explored from several viewpoints in the works of these individual practitioners. In addition to the expected country houses and churches, other building types included are railway terminals, libraries, docks, shopping areas, museums, hospitals, and working-class housing.

Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1842 edition. Excerpt: ...pair of arms N N, Q Q, of which the parallel motion consists shall have exactly the same distance between their joint boles. This is easily secured by drilling them all separately, from a pattern arm made previously. Similarly the holes in the plates H, P, and the carriage, must be at the same distance respectively. 2nd, that the point of the stylus shall be in the axis of rotation. This is also easily effected, and is as easily verified at any moment by twirling the stylus in its carriage opposite to a fixed point. The parallel motion may be made of thin slips of sheet iron rivetted together, but better of sheet steel. The binges of the board must be so placed that when it is closed or folded, there may be room between its inside surfaces for the retaining plates e/and the button B, which must be made all of sheet iron or brass of the same thickness. The length which I have given to the arms of the parallel motion, is just sufficient to allow the pencil to travel over the board. The limit of the motion to the right will be found to be that the arms Q Q will come into contact, and thus prevent farther motion in that direction; and similarly the limit to the left will be the contact of the arms N N. If the size of the instrument is increased, the same proportions must be preserved between the arms and board. R. WuxiS. Cambridge, June 10,1842. ON THE THERMAE OF ANCIENT ROME. (With an Engraving, Plate X.) Extracted from a Paper read by the Rev. Richard Burgess, B.D. Honorary Member, at the Royal Institute of British Architects on Monday, 30M May, 1842. If, as I have before observed, we learn from the study of temples much of the religious rites of antiquity, if from the Basilicas something of the mode of administering justice, if from...
