Burnet, John

Burnet, John (1814–1901). Scots architect, born at Kirk of Shotts, he became an architect in 1844, practising in Glasgow. His early work is modestly Classical, including Elgin Place Congregational Church (1856) and the Italianate 61–3 Miller Street (1854). His later designs include the exuberant Italian Renaissance Clydesdale Bank, St Vincent Place (1870), and the beautifully restrained Clevedon Crescent (1876). Burnet was responsible for the Italian Gothic Glasgow Stock Exchange (1874), Woodlands Parish Church (also 1874), and Lanarkshire House, Ingram Street (1876), an Italianate Mannerist design of great verve, with an unevenly spaced pilastrade and a colonnade on the two upper floors.

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.
