The gabled manor houses of the early 17th century are, for many, the epitome of the English country house; indeed, Jacobean houses form the core of the National Trust collection. Richly illustrated with color and duotone photographs from Country Life’s unparalleled archive, this book tells the absorbing story of the evolution of the Jacobean country house. Though the Jacobean period itself spanned only 22 years (1603 1625), it had a major impact on English domestic architecture: this was an exciting period of experiment and discovery, with an extraordinary range of architectural styles being brought into play. The authoritative essays on 22 key Jacobean houses are brought to life with the beautifully reproduced photographs in this latest volume in the acclaimed Country Life series.
