Book Description

4 Oct 2007 England's Living History
The Georgian & Regency house conjures up a distinct and much admired image. Elegance, refinement and beautiful proportions have made this period an inspiration for later architects and a popular choice for today's house buyer. Using his own drawings, diagrams and photographs, author Trevor Yorke explains all aspects of the Georgian and Regency house and provides a comprehensive guide to the houses of this notable peiod. The book is divided into three sections, outling the history of the period; stepping inside the different rooms and their fittings, what they were used for and how they would have appeared; and the final section contains a quick reference guide with notes on dating houses, suggestions for further reading, a glossary of unfamiliar terms and details of places to visit.

More About the Author

I trained as an artist, photographer, and map maker and use these illustrative skills to make easy to understand books about my favourite subject, English buildings. They are aimed at people who might be renovating, tracing the history of or just interested in local buildings, with clearly labelled drawings, diagrams and photos, specifically produced for each book, making them popular with beginners in the subject and students. They are published by Countryside Books who focus on value for money and hence most of my books have listed prices from only £4.99 - £9.99.
There are around twenty of my titles available on Amazon including a series on period houses from Tudor times through to the 1950s, famous buildings like Abbeys, Castles and Country Houses, and other subjects as diverse as narrowboats and gravestones!
I was born in Sussex in 1966, and currently live in Leek, on the edge of the Peak District, with my wife and two children. More details on my website:

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Both this, and other architectural books from Countryside Books are excellent. I am an interior design student and found this book indispensable when studying the Georgian era (I also used 'British Architectural Styles' by Trevor Yorke - which I would also recommend highly). The illustrations are very good, and the text to the point and readable - although this is a 'simple' book, it is by no means 'simplistic', and is a perfect introduction to the subject. Small enough to put in your bag (or a large pocket!)- it is invaluable for taking out and about with you if you are interested in historical architecture.

I particulary enjoyed reviewing the blueprints of the houses along with the explanations of the logic behind them. Beauty, simplicity and symmetry were of primary importance with comfort lagging somewhat behind. Certainly a fireplace decorated by Robert Adams beats out a Swedish or German stove for beauty any day of the week even if it does mean adding a shawl or two or three. The book is a must for any lover of Georgian or Regency houses. Who could have guessed the horror of the Victorian house with its choppy over-filled rooms was coming around the corner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great information in a compact form 29 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has been very helpful in researching the Georgian and Regency (Late Georgian) styles of London. It contains both illustrations of how rooms would look as well as black and white photographs of real details to assist in identifying buildings. It also has a few illustrations of interior details like fireplaces, mouldings, ironworking and stairs as well as how certain aspects of the house worked mechanically. It's 128 pages including the index.
