An English Manor House represents an architectural ideal. For generations it has embodied civilised taste. These houses have formed a core part of "Country Life" features over the decades and this book contains fantastic photography of them. Here are Cranborne, Canons Ashby and Chastleton which are houses of timeless charm and tranquillity. Also, there are many houses that fell upon hard times only to rise again, such as Sissinghurst and Hidcote. The architects of the English manor House are many of the great names in the field and here are examples by Lutyens, Blow and Blomfield. The book is a magnificent reminder of the architectural glory of the English manor house and charts the evolution of their different styles. There are over 200 images beautifully produced in duotone which conjure up the era of the Manor House. This is the first of 2 launch titles of paperback versions of the sumptuous "Country Life" series. It covers the great manor houses in England. It is illustrated with the pick of "Country Life's" archive of photographs of manor houses taken over the past hundred years. It is written by the foremost expert on manor houses.
