Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Georgian period (1714-1830) in Great Britain was characterized by a great diversity of house styles, based on the economic circumstances of the occupants. A maker and seller of miniatures, Long discusses the exteriors and interiors of many house types, from laborers' cottages to country houses. Interspersed with detailed drawings of structural elements and photographs of actual miniature homes is the author's rather colorful running narrative describing bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and more and the uses of objects that may be familiar to American aficionados of Antiques Roadshow UK on PBS/BBC. There are measured drawings for building several houses. This very interesting but specialized book will find a place in public libraries needing more material on miniatures.
