5.0 étoiles sur 5 magnifique 26 avril 2014
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Pour les amoureux de la vie de châteaux, un ouvrage merveilleux, joliment illustré avec grande qualité. Ces quelques demeures de la campagne anglaise ouvertes au public ou non s'offrent avec délice et nous plongent dans un instant magique de contemplation. Les intérieurs sont remplis de mille vies avec des accumulations incroyables de tableaux, de meubles, d'objets de toutes sortes. C'est également des vues des parcs et des bâtiments qui nous montrent une Angleterre comme on l'aime. On perçoit l'importance des relations cordiales avec la France et des lignages anciens datant de la colonisation des Normands. On peut ainsi lire les devises familiales en français, découvrir dans un couloir le portrait de Madame de Maintenon ou de Louis quatorze, et se régaler d'un mobilier français du 18ième siècle. Le texte en anglais est facile à lire. Dommage que les éditions Thames et Hudson impriment leurs ouvrages en Chine car l'odeur chimique à l'ouverture de l'emballage du livre fait un peu peur et ce genre de livre mériterait une impression sur papier d'une gamme au dessus. Les amateurs de ce genre d'ouvrage ne regardent pas à quelques pounds ou euros de plus. Magnifique! Ouvrage à avoir et à contempler!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tour of Ten English Country Homes 8 novembre 2013
Par L. M. Keefer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Over 1000 English Country houses were demolished between the years 1945 and 1955 in England. Imagining that much history and beauty lost forever, it makes our reverence for, and appreciation of, these charming English country homes even more important. In this beautiful volume ten elegant English country homes are featured. Ranging from medieval times to the early 20th century, a cornucopia of styles are revealed: Medieval, Jacobean, Elizabethan, Tudor, Palladian, Baroque, Jacobethan, Picturesque, Gothic to Arts and Crafts styles. And sometimes you'll see a mix of these styles in one home as succeeding generations have added additions and updated the homes.

Up until 1914 the gentry owned one-half of England, this book tells us. Now they own less than 1%. The homes detailed in this gorgeous book have remained in their families, some for over 1000 years. Here's an overview of the homes included:

* KENTCHURCH COURT ~ in Heresford on border of England and Wales. About 1000 years old. A 1460 portrait has Kentchurch in background - an "earliest known depiction of an English country house." Originally a fortified manor.

* PRIDEAUX PLACE ~ in Cornwall. Completed 1592. E-shaped Elizabethan manor house. Occupied by American Army during WWII. Only six of its 45 bedrooms are habitable. Used in Rosemary Pilcher films.

* MILTON ~ in Cambridgeshre. Built 1391. William Fitzwilliam bought manor in 1502. William was treasurer to Cardinal Wolsey who was entertained here. Daphne De Maurier visited and based interiors in REBECCA on this home.

* BADMINTON ~ in Gloustershire. Recorded in Domesday book in 1275. English version of badminton sport invented here. Badminton court is size of Great Hall of this home. Queen Mary came here during WWII with 55 servants.

* EUSTON ~ in Norfolk. Queen Elizabeth I stayed on estate. New home built on site in late 1600's. Many fine paintings of royalty from 1700's hang on walls.

* GOODWOOD HOUSE ~ in Sussex. Originally hunting lodge of Duke of Richmond in 1697. Has a Tapestry Room with French tapestries on walls. Celebrated as England's greatest sporting estate - cricket first played here.

* HACKTHORN HALL ~ in Lincolnshire. Original Elizabethan home. Owners have Jane Austen and Tennyson in family tree. Originally H-shaped with Dutch style gables. Pulled down and new 2-story, square neoclassical villa built.

* MADRESFIELD COURT ~ in Worcestershire. Probably wattle-and-daub manor house around 1086. Has a moat. Evelyn Waugh wrote BLACK MISCHIEF here, used owners as inspiration for BRIDESHEAD REVISITED. Rebuilt in 1860's for 25 years.

* INWOOD ~ in Somerset. Rebuilt in 1879. No clear style. Owners loved collecting. Collection of hunting horns.

* RODMARTON MANOR ~ in Gloustershire. Began construction in 1909 - one of best examples of Arts & Crafts style. Built in three stages - finished in 1929.

You feel you are on an English Country House tour here of some of the lesser-known and smaller English Country houses. The photography is stunning and the quality of paper is thick. There is background on the history, owners, architectural work and art in the homes. Some photos take up double pages, or full pages. Some photos are three to four on a page. If you can't get enough of English Country homes and style, this lovely book should be a five-star read for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lovely book for wishing and dreaming 23 février 2014
Par Reading Rocks - Publié sur Amazon.com

I suppose I could be called an "anglophile" since I love all things English especially interior design and antiques. This book does not disappoint. I purchased it because 1) James Peill also was involved in the book "The Scottish Country House"; and 2) I longed to get more detailed information about some of the wonderful English country houses. These houses are not what we would consider "country" houses -- there are no barns, or cottages, or cute little houses-by-the-lake here. What the British considered "country houses" back in the early to mid 20th century were huge homes in the countryside outside of London that had 10-12 bedrooms, a dining room to seat 20, and Master paintings on the walls. These country homes had hundreds of acres of land and many of them shown in this book, hosted royalty for weekend house parties. This book can be considered a coffee table book and it is beautifully done. Each chapter covers an individual country house and provides the history (e.g., year it was built, who designed it, who were the owners, etc.). In many cases, these country houses are still lived in by the descendants of the original owners. The quality of the paper is superb. The photos are all in color, are clear and crisp and 99% of the photos show full rooms. The book is a visual treat-for-the-eyeballs for anyone who appreciates interior design, the English way of life, or seeing how the upper crust lived their lives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunning, magnificent...it's beautiful, folks! 28 décembre 2013

After "The Irish Country House" by Peill and Fennell, I thought I'd seen the gold standard for country house books. Then I saw this as an "order early at reduced price" and well....with Peill and Fennell, say no more.

I would say this is a masterpiece. It's Fennell's pics that make it that way, and the style of layout. Often, as in "Irish," photos are combined into multiple sets per page and this really works well. I would only say I wish there were more photos of house family minutia as there was "Irish," though that is a minor point. This is still a stupendiously (if this is a word) delicious book. A true visual feast.

I have an extensive collection of country house books of Britain. Many are nice, a few are great. But these last two by Peill and Fennell are hands down the best of them all. They didn't just go out and take photos and throw it all together. You can tell there was a lot of thought in the photos they selected and their placement. That gives this book atmosphere other authors lack. Atmosphere counts a lot, especially when so many of these types of books can be thrown together hastily like any other type of factory goods. No, Peill and Fennell really put out the effort for us. A country house is like fine wine to be savored, and this book tastes like a 100 year-old of the best wine out there.

Another thing: if I have to see one more book on Chatsworth and Castle Howard (the "usual suspects" of country house books) I'm going to throw up. Not knocking these two houses, but they get so much coverage that my blinders go over my eyes by now. Not here. Peill and Fennell went out and found us some "unknown" houses that have their own charm and beauty without all the pomp and circumstance. I call them "boutique" country houses, and I like them a lot better. Honestly, the commercial ones like Chatsworth and Castle Howard and Blenheim are so massive they're really not homes. The ones Peill and Fennell selected in "Irish" are smaller and nicer, and the same goes here. Yes, there are a couple larger ones, but these are also on the road less travelled in the country house biz and I like them.

I buy these books to look at the beauty and the art. I don't think there is anything more beautiful then the quintessential country house in Britain and Ireland. Peill and Fennell capture them better than any other. I only hope they can now do one on Wales. There are also other homes in Scotland and England (and maybe Ireland?) they can go back and add. I'm saying I'm hoping this twosome can produce more of these books in the future, because I will snap them up fast. Still lots of houses out there, guys, please don't stop.

This book was ordered as a gift. The recipient LOVED it. The photos are exquisite and really give a sense of these grand English country homes, their interiors, exteriors and lovely grounds. I did not read it, but was told ( by the recipient) that the history and details about the homes are well-written, interesting and informative.

This is a fabulous book...period. If you're into interiors, antiques, objects d'art, paintings, and the frames surrounding the paintings, furniture, etc...you will truly enjoy it. The photographs and narrative are outstanding. I have many coffee table books on the subject of great houses of Europe and this is probably my favorite. And Julian Fellowes writes a nice forward which is a bonus. The book is well worth the money.
