9781850747246: Locks and Lavatories: The Architecture of Privacy

Privacy in the home is a relatively new concept and, until the Georgian era, even kings were given little private space. This enjoyable and well-illustrated guide introduces the archaeological, architectural and historical evidence for the spatial organisation of palaces, houses and gardens from prehistory to the modern day. Sections on different rooms, household technology, furnishings and servants, for example, reflect changing standards and tastes and the often wide chasm between reality and the idealised home.

Book Description English Heritage, Swindon, United Kingdom, 2000. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Photographs and Drawings (illustrator). Step through the doorway of your own home and discover its fascinating past. Today we jealously guard our privacy, but in previous centuries living was much more communal. How has this change been reflected in the layout and furnishings of houses? How has the single-room hut of prehistoric times evolved into the house of today, each room with its own function? Discover how the medieval hall has shrunk to an entrance lobby; why bathrooms only became common in houses after the late 19th century; why separate servants' quarters and staircases were created; why three-legged stools were more popular than four-legged ones; and how labor-saving devices have transformed the home. This is a fascinating look at how our homes have evolved over the centuries; part of the English Heritage Gatekeeper Series. Includes an index. Illustrated in full color with french flaps. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 002907
