Henry Avray Tipping (1855-1933) was an architectural historian, garden designer and perhaps is best known as an Architectural Editor of Country Life between 1907 and 1910 and then again from 1916 until 1930. This monumental set is an important record of English architecture and interiors from 1066 up to 1820.
