5.0 étoiles sur 5 All Around Outstanding in Every Way !! 15 septembre 2015
Par John Silence is Golden - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have many books on the English country and town house and their gardens and this one is in my top 5 for informative content , great pictures {if mostly black and white} and an easy/ entertaining writing style. Mr. Sykes covers a vast amount of territory - from the 1580 s to the 1980s. Long demolished palaces of the 17th and 18th century - Somerset House, Montagu House, Monmouth House, Newcastle House, Powis House etc etc are described / detailed and this was information that was mostly new to me - outstanding !.

The mansions created in the 18th and 19th century's with their plethora of styles - Palladian, Neo-Classical, .Adams, Italianate are lovingly detailed. Al of these fabulous homes and their magnificent decoration and their art collections : Devonshire House, Norfolk House, Northumberland House, Stafford House, Chesterfield House, Spencer House, Grosvenor House, Dudley House, Dorchester House, Bridgewater House and many more - these mansions were {and are} the epitome of elegance and opulence. And sadly they are almost all gone demolished or mutilated beyond recognition - victims of changing times, mores and economic realities.

The author weaves in a good portion of social history into the narrative about these homes thru the centuries, the families who owned them, their domestic households, politics and political influence and the decline of the British Aristocracy's power and influence after 1870 - the sad and melancholy end to homes that were themselves superb works of art.

This is a really nice book that in hardcover I bought for less than a dollar from the Amazon Website in near perfect condition I am very happy and give this book a 5 star rating - Highly Recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book on palatial English houses of the past 21 novembre 2014
Par E. Clarke - Publié sur
Format: Relié
As a fan of English country houses and gardens I found this book to be a very enjoyable read. The author travels through several centuries of private houses that are palaces unto themselves. The history behind each house is long enough to be very interesting but well short of being long winded. I enjoyed all of the photos of the houses, many of which I had not heard of before despite being keen to the subject matter. Many of the photos show how truly amazing these houses were and still are, albeit all the photos are black and white. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in architecture, design, or just a fan of great English houses. I enjoyed this book much more than many of the more recent books on the subject, even with the fancy new color photos.
