Présentation de l'éditeur

Divided into four chronological sections this fabulous book opens with the early Tudor palaces. The next section covers the so-called 'Prodigy Houses' of the Elizabethan era, which are followed by an inspiring selection of Jacobean palaces and stately homes. The final section explores the more modern buildings of the Restoration style. More than 200 lavish photographs, paintings, reconstructions and maps help bring to life the true majestic glory of these houses and their times. The intriguing histories of each building are expertly described in an entertaining way, while fact boxes explain developments in architecture and focus on some key architects of the era.

This is a MAGNIFICENT book!! Who said it's supposed to be an indepth discussion of Tudor and Stuart architecture?? The subtitles on the front cover explain it all:

"The Golden Age of Britain's Historic & Stately Houses
With more than 200 glorious photographs, fine-art paintings, reconstruction and maps
Britain's magnificent history and heritage explored in an expert visual guide
From Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, Charles I and Queen Anne, 1485-1714

by Charles Phillips-consultant : Professor Richard G. Wilson FRHistS"

If you click on author Charles Phillips name above you will see all the books he has published. He knows his stuff. The reason I know this is an excellent book is because I'm salivating over the pictures. And I'm itching to get back to England where my husband is from. Being in the very far northwest, we've spent most of our time there to tour around in the dozen times I've been over. We made it to London a couple times and toured Windsor Castle extensively. On the one page devoted to Windsor, I find the photos and discussion excellent. A far-off picture of the entire castle as seen from Charles II's Long Walk and a larger picture of the fantastic St. George's Hall. We also toured Edinburgh Castle and Holyroodhouse, so closely associated with Mary Queen of Scots. Very nice photos and text. Hever Castle, Anne Boleyn's childhood home is also included. You see what the entire outside looks like, a portrait of Anne and the dining hall where it is identified that Henry VIII courted Sir Thomas Boleyn for the the hand of his daughter Anne. (And presumably also Mary Boleyn who was mistress to Henry prior to Anne's marriage.) Speaking of Henry VIII, as a marriage settlement (to not marry her) he granted Hever to Anne of Cleves.

There is no way that a highly-illustrated book of 96 pages can go indepth on about 40 different places. For the amount of text, there is a great pithy history of each building. I did learn a bit of history I never heard before (and I read a lot of Tudor history): Syon House in Middlesex is named for Zion and was first a convent founded in 1415 by Henry V. After Henry VIII died in 1547, on its way from Westminster to burial in Windsor, Henry's coffin rested in state at Syon for one night. The following morning, the court discovered in horror that the coffin had burst open and dogs were gnawing on his corpse. It was rumored that this was God's punishment for Henry having broken from the Catholic Church and executing many priests and bishops who refused to accept his as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. Henry had had the father confessor of the abbey brutally murdered and his body dumped on the gateway as a warning to other recalcitrant Catholic leaders.

This is a great picture book, a good VISUAL GUIDE as the cover declares to many historic and beautiful places in Britain. Anyone interested in more indepth discussion can find it in individual guides of each great house or castle.

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my grandson who loves 'grand' houses and castles, and wants to live in one someday (or design his own - he's 15). We enjoyed looking at it and discussing it together. Beautiful pictures.

No architecture information, no any floorplan illustration, and very very few interior photos inside this book. All the photos are low resolution or in small size.
