This latest volume in the acclaimed Country Life series examines the English country house from 1800 to 1830, looking in turn at the buildings associated with the Prince Regent himself, from Brighton Pavilion to Buckingham Palace; at the houses of the aristocracy, such as Eastnor Castle and Goodwood; and at the homes of the gentry, including Southill in Befordshire and Luscombe in Devon. The architects whose work is featured include the Wyatt dynasty, Henry Holland, John Nash, C. R. Cockerell, Robert Smirke, William Wilkins, Thomas Hopper, Humphrey Repton, and Sir John Soane. The book also looks at important architectural themes of the period, from the development of the Greco-Roman style to the Gothic Revival and Picturesque.
