This title covers from George I to Elizabeth II, 1714 to the present day. It presents an illustrated visual history of Britain's architectural masterpieces from 1714 to the present day. All the great castle renovations of the period and the finest stately homes are profiled, with details on their history, inhabitants and interesting features. It explores the major architectural movements of the past three hundred years and their influence on current architectural trends. 200 stunning photographs and artworks show every aspect of the architecture, interior design and landscaping. Discover Britain's magnificent heritage of country houses in this lavishly illustrated guide to the architectural treasures of the British Isles. Spanning the years from 1714 to the start of the twenty-first century, this book includes the period's finest examples of British architecture. An in-depth guide to the history of every house features information on its design, construction and the stories of its best-known inhabitants, as well as profiles of celebrated architects. Timelines and maps trace the development of Britain's architectural legacy, while a glossary introduces key terms and an A-Z listing make it easy to find every property listed. This book will delight and inform in equal measure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 7 April 2012
By Moira Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I suppose I should have paid more attention to the page count. This LOOKS like it's going to be a grand, huge guide, but it's actually quite small and doesn't give much information that can't be found in half a dozen other books and guides. I have much more interesting collections of "stately houses" on my shelf already; I sent this one back.
