Robinson, John Beverley.
Principles of Architectural Composition; an attempt to order and phrase ideas, which have hitherto been only felt by the instinctive taste of designers.
With an introduction by Russell Sturgis. New York, The Architectural Record co., 1899 . The work first came out in the magazine The Architectural Record in 1898, it was so well received that it was published in book form in 1899. Robinson then lectured at Columbia University, School of Architecture where he revised the work and published it in 1908. Robinson’s ideas are better presented in the 1908 edition but the earlier edition is still interesting as between the two you can see the evolution of his thought. (Cat 6.3)
