From the editor's short biography of Ellen Heaton - "In 1849 her brother was reading The Seven Lamps of Architecture; he found its author to be 'a great enthusiast and runs to extremes in his opinions... he seems to me to become preposterous and self-contradictory', but all was redeemed by his being 'very earnest throughout'."
