This new edition includes a fascinating account of how bricks, brick files and terracotta have been made and used from medieval times to the present day, along with an illustrated glossary, a chronological photo survey, appendices, and bibliography.

R.W. Brunskill was formerly Professor at De Montfort University, Leicester, and before that Reader in Architecture at the University of Manchester.

"Brick and Clay Building in Britain is an essential reference work and should find a rightful home on shelves in conservation offices up and down the country. Even if you think you know your brick bonds pretty well, Brunskill is certain to have noticed that elusive one you have not yet come across and recorded it here."--Michael Scammell, CONTEXT
