Excerpt from The Grammar of House Planning: Hints on Arranging and Modifying Plans of Cottages, Street-Houses, Farm-Houses, Villas, Mansions, and Out-Buildings
Still further to render the work practically useful in all departments, brief Essays are given on several important departments of Arrangement, Construction, and Internal Conveniences, as arrangement of Apartments, Ventilation, Lighting, Drainage, Aspect, Soil, and Site, 850. In these, it is believed, some hints of a useful and novel character will be found worthy the attention of the Reader. The work is not designed exclusively for the purpose of conveying the opinions of the Compiler on the various points of which its pages treat, but as a medium also for giving the opinions of others, whose position in the world of Science and Art entitles them to be considered as authorities. To embody this idea the Compiler has, therefore, carefully selected from a wide range of authorities, Opinions which cannot fail to be otherwise than useful to the practical man. The sources of these being generally acknowledged in the body of the work, it is unnecessary here to give them in full; the Compiler cannot, however, omit here noting his special obligations to the pages of the Builder, the Building News, and to various papers read before the Professional Societies. If the Reader will derive as much profit and pleasure from their perusal as the Compiler has done while selecting them for republication in the pages of his little work, his labour will not have been in vain.
At the same time, while reproducing these opinions of others, the Compiler has not refrained from giving those of his own on the various subjects discussed in its pages. These will easily be distinguished from the other portions of selected matter; and for what they are worth the Reader must take them. It is right here, however, to say, that much of the matter embodying these opinions of the Compiler, formed part of a series of Lectures delivered by him to the members of an important public educational institution.
