Tarbuck was an architect and surveyor, sometime assistant to Sir Charles Barry and Sydney Smirke. He was the author of "A Popular account of the Styles of Architecture," for which he was awarded the Institute Medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1854. This title starts with a general view of carpentry and joinery, moves into a union of theory and practice, and ends with planning of the work. This is the first time we've been able to offer this title.
