Summary
"John Beswicke was a prolific architect during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. He commenced as an architect 13 years after a competition was called for the design of the first Government House in Victoria, and 10 years after the Victorian Institute of Architects was formed. The majority of Beswicke's designs were built before Federation in 1901. ... Beswicke designed buildings in and around Melbourne ... A dapper and urbane gentleman, he was a keen sporting shooter, motoring enthusiest and inventor, as well as a devoted family man. ... This book cements Beswicke's place as one of Melbourne's formost architects of his era."--Dust jacket gate fold
