Bryce, David

Bryce, David (1803–76). Scots architect, a pupil and assistant of William Burn. He designed a number of distinguished buildings, including the Scottish-Baronial Royal Infirmary (1870–9); Fettes College (1863–70); the Head Office of the Bank of Scotland (1864–71); St George's West Church (1867–9); and the British Linen Bank, St Andrew Square (a fine palazzo of 1846–51), all in Edinburgh. He is best known for his country-houses, most of which are in the Scottish-Baronial style, influenced by Billings's Baronial Antiquities (1845–52): one of his best houses in that style is Kinnaird Castle, Brechin, Angus (1853–7). He designed the enormous Classical Hamilton Palace mausoleum, Lanarkshire (1848–51), which has a Roman grandeur about it. His brother John (1805–51) practised in Glasgow, where he designed monuments in the Necropolis including the McGavin memorial (1830s), and several ranges of Classical houses, including Queen's Crescent (1840).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
