Notes NOTES: Reproductions of a set of ‘Lecture Diagrams’ published with the tenth edition of Banister Fletcher's 'A History of Architecture on the Comparative Method' (1938), revised and corrected for the 11th edition (1943) onwards. They were used for block-making because the original blocks were destroyed at the printers in 1942. The indicated revisions likely principally date from the first post-war edition (13th edition, 1946). Various references suggest this set of Lecture Diagrams came from Sir Banister Flight Fletcher's office and were re-used until the 18th edition (1975).
