Description

“Conrad Thake has researched and assessed Scamp’s work in Malta as well as elsewhere, before and after his four year stay amongst us. He has produced not only a fascinating work of scholarship and critical revaluation, but has also put Scamp in historical perspective. In the process it adds to our understanding of an important period of our social, economic and political history in the middle decades of the nineteenth century.”

President Emeritus Dr. Ugo Mifsud Bonnici

“The monograph re-dimensions the stature of William Scamp as a key player in the shift from the Baroque rhetoric of the Knights of St John to a new architectural expression that better reflected the new political-socio-economic realities forged by the French and Industrial Revolutions. He comes out as an inspired multifaceted, state-of-the art architect who experimented with new materials and techniques.”

Professor Mario Buhagiar
