Synopsis: Book by Stourton James

Críticas:

'This is a truly magnificent book. The wonderful text tells the story of the architects, owners and occupants, restoration, adaptation and change. And the photographs are exceptional.'



'A treasure ... best of all are the authors personal asides on builders and those who inspired them'



'The true fascination resides in the less well-known interiors'



'The true fascination resides in the less well-known interiors'

'This magnificent book, with illustrations of breathtaking beauty specially taken by Fritz von der Schulenburg, is the fullest account ever written of its absorbing subject. It will come as a revelation, even to those who think they are familiar with London . . . The book is . . . not only about architecture, but about people, whose social, artistic and political ambitions, and manner of living, are vividly brought to life . . . We are familiar with the depressing list of great houses demolished in the 20th century, from Devonshire House to Londonderry House, but this book can surely cheer us up during the recession with its visions of surviving splendour.?

'This lavishly illustrated compendium suggest that the age of elegance endures'

'This sumptuously illustrated volume...extends its reach both sociologically and chronologically... James Stourton's text is very readable, deftly mingling the architectural history and the social, and on the whole reliable, and it is completemented by Fritz von der Schulenburg's specially taken photographs'

'Writing in a deceptively simple style, Stourton concentrates on architects and artists, on awners and occupants. Idiosyncratic and amusing, he makes you see everything in a new light'

'the deft weaving of architectural, social and contemporary history will reveal unexpected pleasures'  

'A fascinating and witty tour of some of London's most elegant (and most secret) houses and the people who built them'

'Stourton writes elegantly and absorbingly about both architects and owners'

'A treasure ... best of all are the authors personal asides on builders and those who inspired them'

'This is a truly magnificent book. The wonderful text tells the story of the architects, owners and occupants, restoration, adaptation and change. And the photographs are exceptional.'

Book Description FRANCES LINCOLN LIMITED, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Brand new and unread first UK very larger format(26 x 31cms) edition hardback book with an unclipped dustwrapper published in 2012 by Collins in fine condition with a little pushing to the top of the spine on the casing and a very small bump to the front top right hand corner of the casing. The unclipped dustwrapper is in fine condition with a little creasing to the top of the spine. It is a beautifully produced book full of wonderful photographs of the houses covered. The book is signed on the title page by James Stourton who has kindly added 'Best wishes' above his signature. This was following his event at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Monday 8th October. We are also including the event ticket, this is not signed. The first edition status of the book is confirmed by the numeric sequence 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 on the copyright page. The book weighs over 2.5kgs packed so I'm afraid extra shipping costs will be necessary. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-8846047994
