As a previous review points out, this book is about sociology, not building methods. The latter do get some treatment, but only tangentially, except for the course of about ten out of the total 100 pages.

There is almost nothing here that would be directly useful to a modern builder who wants to imitate medieval building styles. However, I would think that anyone doing such work would be interested in the material presented here. It is a very concise, well-compiled and well-written text, and, I think, easily comprehended by those who are not normally given to reading history. Quite possibly a good gift for such a person, or, perhaps, someone who enjoys the "Renaissance Fair(e)" sort of thing.

One caveat, for all but the most erudite reader: a fair amount of French, Latin, Middle and even Old English are left untranslated. This is true, as well, when discussing the tools used. Well-drawn illustrations would have been appropriate, by anyone's standards.

Illustrations are overwhelmingly decorative rather than illustrative.

My copy has only the date that Barnes and Noble re-published the work. The latest reference in the "Authorities" (Appendix 2) is dated 1924. A search of the OCLC (library) database revealed an original publishing date of 1922, apparently published by the Birmingham [U.K.] Archaeological Society. There was a 1925 edition published by the Oxford University Press, which would presumably be the basis of later editions, re-prints really.

Page-bottom notes are much sparser than modern taste would prefer. Again, quite a lot of untranslated foreign and antique stuff. Modern-day gripers griping that modern authors and publishers don't clearly back up their statements should be reminded that, sometimes, the old-timers also seemed to think that their mere word should be good enough for the reader.

No end notes or index.

This is an interesting book, but it has little to do with real building techniques. It mainly focuses on the social structure of the building community, which is well documented thru guild membership rosters. Not a page turner!
