I have just finished reading The Honeywood File and The Honeywood Settlement by HB Creswell.
The books were owned by my great-grandfather, JC Snelling (builder and contractor), and then my grandfather, JG Snelling (builder and contractor).
The preface in the books states that they were originally written as instalments for publication in the AJ. The dates in the books seem to indicate that this was in the 1920s. I wonder if someone can shed any more light on this subject.
I would recommend the books as a lighthearted but educational read for aspiring architects and builders. The language and some of the technical aspects are somewhat dated.
However, the lessons regarding relationships (personal and contractual) between all parties are as relevant today.
