Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Robinson, an expert on the British country house, chronicles the stylistic evolution of the Regency period's English country manor-"the centre of a self-contained estate and the setting of house parties"-with regard not only to its architecture and decoration but also to the social and political climate during its development. As with previous books from this series, the black-and-white and color photos from the picture archives of Country Life magazine vividly depict the details of this domestic architectural style, with examples of every kind located throughout Great Britain. Recommended for large collections and those focusing on Regency design. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
