Notes

First edition of the social evolutionist and town planner's only general monograph on cities, scarce in commerce. It was mostly written between 1911 and 1913, at the start of one of his most productive decades. "He enjoyed his most successful years between 1910 and the First World War, working on planning in Ireland with Raymond Unwin and taking the exhibition to Ghent, Belgium, as part of an international congress on cities organized by Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine, leaders of the European peace movement... in 1914 he was invited by Pentland to take his Cities and Town Planning Exhibition to India where he worked for ten years and wrote more than fifty town-planning reports" (ODNB).
