Previous owner's inscription on ffep. Colour plates, b/w illustrations xviii, 600 pages clean and tight. Dimensions: 23.4 x 14.8 x 3.8 cm. The figure of Sir Christopher Wren looms large in English national consciousness. The imposing beauty of St Paul's Cathedral stands forever for the nation's achievement – its undamaged dome towering above the rubble of the Blitz in the Second World War a symbol of the London's indomitable fighting spirit. The man behind the work was as remarkable as the monuments he has left us. Lisa Jardine takes us deep into Wren's imagination and discovers the unique, exacting nature of his mind and the emerging new world of late-seventeenth-century science and ideas. Wren was a versatile genius who could have pursued a number of brilliant careers with equal virtuosity. A mathematical prodigy, an accomplished astronomer, a skilful anatomist, and a founder of The Royal Society, he eventually made a career in what he described in later life as 'Rubbish' – architecture, and the design and construction of public buildings. But he remained committed to science. The Monument to the Great Fire was built with a subterranean laboratory; the south-west tower of St Paul's was used as a vertical telescope during construction – both were designed to function as public monuments and as oversized scientific instruments. Wren was a major figure at a turning point in English history. He mapped moons and the trajectories of comets for kings; lived and worked under six monarchs; pursued astronomy and medicine through two civil wars, the English Commonwealth, the Great Fire, the Restoration, and the eventual extinction of the Stuart dynasty. Jardine explores also Wren's personal motivations and passions. A sincere man with a remarkable capacity for friendship, his career was shaped by lasting associations forged during a turbulent boyhood, and a lifelong loyalty to the memory of his father's master and benefactor, the 'martyred' king, Charles I. ., HarperCollins, 2002, Lewes, East Sussex: The Book Guild, 1991. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. The author was born in Danzig, where he practised as a barrister until Nazi persecution forced him to flee to England, arriving three weeks before the outbreak of war, where eventually he was released from internment and entered the catering business, rising to managerial status in the Grand Metropolitan chain. This biography tells of his marriage of convenience so that he can find domestic employment and his subsequent internment on the Isle of Man hastens the arrangement's failure and he begins to work towards a reunion with his wife and son, the family from whom the political situation in Germany had imposed his divorce. From his earliest days as a boy soldier at the end of the First World War to the present, life's harshest experiences have not daunted his stoical acceptance of hardship and his story is told with uncompromising honesty and fortitude..
