All photographs are by the author, and except for those of Hero, which are taken from the original bronze, all come from contemporary illustrations in annual numbers of Academy Architecture and Architectural Review, ed. Alexander Koch (London: Academy Architecture). I would like to thank Peyton Skipwith of the Fine Art Society, London, for introducing me to the sculpture of Giles, and for his encouragement and valued advice. I would also like to thank Duncan Robinson formerly of the Center for British Art, Yale University, and of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University.
