5.0 out of 5 stars Herefordshire - The Buildings of England
This updated volume for Herefordshire is as good as one might expect from this highly respected source. The inclusion of colour plates in the centre is a great improvement on the more traditional monochrome images. To anyone who is interested in exploring the buildings of a county this is a truely invaluable guide. Extremely well produced, printed on good quality paper...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the revised edition promised for 2011
It should be noted that this is not the revised edition, by Alan Brooks, promised for 2011 by Yale.
I ordered the revised edition 2011, but what came was the original 1963 edition. I returned this to Amazon and asked for the payment to be put on hold towards the Alan Brooks edition when it comes out, which will be soon. However, Amazon just sent another copy of the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Indespensable, as ever, 14 Mar. 2004
By A Customer
What can one say that others haven't already? As with every other volume in the Buildings of England (or Wales, or Scotland or Ireland) series, for the architectural enthusiast, exploration of new territory without the appropriate trusty Pevsner county guide in hand would be quite unthinkable.
Herefordshire is no exception. The illustrations are not great (but then you don't buy Pevsner for the pictures) but the descriptions are as pithy as ever! Abbey Dore and Croft Castle, Kilpeck and Shobdon, Berrington Hall and of course Hereford Cathedral, they're all here, and also hundreds of other marvellous buildings you'd never otherwise know about.
Isn't it about time Pevsner appreciation became a required subject in all UK schools?!

This revised version of the trusty Pevsner we find is excellent. The entries have been updated, with new information and superb colour photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars full marks for mark two, 17 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Herefordshire (Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England) (Hardcover)
the original series was a landmark but Pevsner's choice of buildings was oh so limited so it is really good to be able to get coverage of a much wider range of buildings even if some of the comments are rather cryptic. Looking forward to the next county

I have bought this book as a present for myself to go with other Pevsners which own. Lovely photos and as interesting as the others in the series. Came well packed and delivered quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ref books on buildings, 31 Dec. 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No comment needed on Pevsner as the are the long established county by county architectural reference books. They are dry but at least are not 'padded' and read as if they are field notes.
Supplier was excellent.

It should be noted that this is not the revised edition, by Alan Brooks, promised for 2011 by Yale.
I ordered the revised edition 2011, but what came was the original 1963 edition. I returned this to Amazon and asked for the payment to be put on hold towards the Alan Brooks edition when it comes out, which will be soon. However, Amazon just sent another copy of the old edition. Alan Brooks is going to be especially good on the stained glass of Herefordshire; any reader contemplating buying the book would be wise to wait until his revision really is published.
