The 18th century is known as the age of elegance, and few contributed more to that elegance than the architect Robert Adam, whose cool, rational classicism has come to define the era. But, as this revealing, meticulously researched and extensively illustrated biography demonstrates, the style, harmony and poise that became his signature did not come easily, but were the product of intense study, purposeful travel - and the driving ambition of this son of an Edinburgh builder to be accepted as a gentleman.
