5.0 out of 5 stars A classic region, 27 Sep 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chances are, if you're thinking of buying this book, you already know everything you need to know. It is the best architectural handbook available for the area, which contains some of the best of British buildings. Bath, Bristol, Wells, some of the all-time classics. It was the most useful thing I took on holiday with me, apart from a tripod. As always, what makes a Pevsner a good Pevsner is the buildings in the particular county, because the same incredibly high standard of textual accuracy and precision is maintained through just about every one. He gets a bit pithy about some sacred cows though, so beware all ye of delicate sensibilities and sentimentalism....

5.0 out of 5 stars Pevsner's North Somerset and Bristol, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Somerset and Bristol (The Buildings of England Series No. 13) (Hardcover)
Everything I expected from Pevsner. I particularly wanted this 1958 year copy which is the original year of print. Very detailed as expected but a wonderful, easy to carry book to accompany you on visits to this area even if much has changed since 1958.

5.0 out of 5 stars another remarkable Pevsner guide, 23 July 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Full of Pevsner's sometimes highly idiosyncratic opinions, this volume is comprehensive as usual and still in excellent condition. It was good value, promptly delivered, and I look forward to it enhancing visits to North Somerset for years to come.
