Following on from the great success of Great Houses of England and Wales (Rizzoli), this concise edition of the original work brings together a selection of the finest houses into a completely redesigned, handy format that will enable it to be used as an affordable companion for those wishing to visit these magnificent houses.
As with the larger volume, the book is filled with charming anecdotes that describe the history of each house, both its architecture and its families, giving a real sense of the life it embodies. These are matched by stunning photographs that illustrate all aspects of the houses. They include some of the most splendid examples of English art and architecture, from awe-inspiring medieval stone to the beauties of the English Renaissance, the classical grandeur of the eighteenth century and the highest excesses of Victorian taste. The book concludes with a list of contact details and opening times for the houses that will assist those wishing to visit them.
