Thanks to an astute tip-off, it was an honour to meet Professor Miles Lewis in his backyard library built to house the rare architecture books he has collected. It is stunning to think Professor Lewis’ thoughts have most likely scanned every line on every page of every book now kept safe and stored on these shelves, throughout his practice and research. But one need not physically visit this library to spend hours musing between its pages. In an exemplary respect for and support of scholarship, Professor Lewis has also made an extent of this history available online. A catalogue of books in his library can be found here if ever you plan to visit — Miles Lewis’ personal library — as well as databases (Melbourne Mansions) and tour notes.
