Note the title: this isn't a 'style' book but an historical overview of Edwardian-era houses, briefly covering every aspect of their construction, fixtures, fittings (including services) and decoration. It's aimed at the general reader/householder so it isn't too technical, but it packs a huge amount of detail (and illustrations) into what is a relatively short book, and even as a professional conservationist I've found it useful to have in the office as a handy reference source.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 13 September 2010
I cannot recommend this book series highly enough! Each volume contains a treasure trove of usefula and fascinating information about each type of architecture, and what's more, is fully illustated - not just a windbag of text. No, these books are fun! There are a wealth of diagrams, fully labelled, plus lots of photos to explain all those large and small features of a period house, much of which I hadn't noticed and very much wish I had. These books are an excellent first choice for any student of historical architecture, house renovators, and dolls house modellers, especially the latter.

Having just bought an Edwardian house with my wife (yet to move in) we've been researching the era to give us ideas for how to decorate in sympathy with the house. This book was such a surprise - I was initially disappointed that there were no coloured pictures, but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down - a fascinating glimpse into styles but also how life was for those who lived through Edwardian times. Definitely worth a read.

If you have an Edwardian Period property and you have an interest in it and its history, this is an essential book for you. Well written and understandable.

Yet again Trevor Yorke has excelled himself with this clear guide to the Edwardian house. His excellent illustrations and clear explanations make it most interesting/

Excellent range of information about layouts and interiors. It is particularly welcome that it provides direct comparisons between small, medium and large houses in many different respects.

We just moved into a new house of this type, and I bought this book. It provides a review of the structure and key features, which is very helpful.

It's small and concise it shows all the elements you would find in a house of that period, would of been better with more photos though.

For the size of this book there is a lot of basic information in it. I wanted inspiration for room decorating and it helped.

Christmas gift for my son. Book is smaller than I expected, didn't look much wrapped up. Hope he finds it interesting.
