Divided into four chronological sections this fabulous book opens with the early Tudor palaces. The next section covers the so-called 'Prodigy Houses' of the Elizabethan era, which are followed by an inspiring selection of Jacobean palaces and stately homes. The final section explores the more modern buildings of the Restoration style. More than 200 lavish photographs, paintings, reconstructions and maps help bring to life the true majestic glory of these houses and their times. The intriguing histories of each building are expertly described in an entertaining way, while fact boxes explain developments in architecture and focus on some key architects of the era.
