This major reference work, written in 1910, offers very detailed information on the appearance and qualities of the types of stone being used at the time, including granite, sandstones, limestones and other lesser known building stones. It also covers stone decay, in particular the problems of pollution, frost and organic growth in the breakdown of stone.
