Busby, Charles Augustin

Busby, Charles Augustin (1786–1834). English architect who published A Series of Designs for Villas and Country Houses (1808) and A Collection of Designs for Modern Embellishments (1810). He designed several villas before building the Commercial Rooms, Bristol (1810), with a Classical temple-front and an interior lit by means of a lantern supported by caryatides. In 1817 he went to the USA, and designed a theatre in Virginia. He returned to England, where he worked for a time with Francis Goodwin, later settling in Brighton, where he formed a partnership with Amon Henry Wilds. The firm laid out the Kemp Town and Brunswick Estates there, Busby providing the designs and Wilds acting as contractor. His best work is Sussex Square, Lewes Crescent, Arundel Terrace, and Chichester Terrace (1823–c.1850), Kemp Town, and Brunswick Square, Brunswick Terrace, Brunswick Street East and West, Lower Brunswick Place, and Landsdowne Place, and Lansdowne Square, Hove (1823–c.1834).

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.
