Product Description

Review

'Within four years, Newman had researched and written two volumes on Kent, described by Pevsner as 'the best of the whole series [...] [while also adding] I have nothing but admiration or his perspicacity and his talent for finding the mot juste'. Returning once again to the Kent volumes after nearly four decades in academia at the Courtauld, those capacities which Pevsner identified in Newman remain undiminished and are now matched by the vast experience and expertise of one of England's most distinguished architectural historians. [This book is] not something new but something mature and wiser'-Owen Hopkins, Burlington Magazine -- Owen Hopkins Burlington Magazine 'Newman's prose strikes just the right balance between telling and sharing, combining authority and impulse, and steering deftly between Pevsnerian analysis and Ian Nairn's evocation of a sense of place. It is just the right style to dip into, to invite distraction...Whatever the case, the new edition represents the maturation, not the replacement of the old. Pevsner himself declared that Newman's Kentish volumes represented 'the best in the series'; it is hard to disagree.'-Geraint Franklin, Burlington Magazine -- Geraint Franklin Burlington Magazine

Do not pick this book up with a view to glancing idly through its pages - you will very soon be hooked on all the detail of any buildings you thought you knew, and totally involved in reading about buildings you knew you did not now. An excellent purchase.

I have bought every edition of the Buildings of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland as they first appeared or as they have been revised into the new format currently published by the Yale University Press. (I already possess John Newman's earlier versions of the Kent volumes). He is a well-known and highly knowledgeable architectural writer, and his thumbnail sketches of towns, villages and major buildings are judicious and well-written. All in all, this latest edition is well up to the high standards set by the Buildings of England series. Would that there were similar volumes available relating to other countries in Europe and across the world - it's not just a patriotic matter for me. Mind you, I would not have the spare cash to buy them all!
