Synopsis: In the heart of Central Europe stand some of the most elegant and grandly conceived country houses ever constructed, from medieval fortresses and Renaissance-era estates to baroque villas and neoclassical palaces. Until the last decade these illustrious residences were inaccessible to the West. This landmark volume presents these rarely seen treasures of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland, nations that shelter a superb selection of EuropeG«÷s finest country houses, built over the centuries by some of the continentG«÷s most distinguished families. Richly illustrated with specially commissioned photography, The Great Country Houses of Central Europe tells the stories of these magnificent buildings and the families that constructed them, immersing us in the vanished world of the regionG«÷s aristocracy. Lord Michael Pratt sets his discussion of the houses and their patrons against the backdrop of Central European history. Beginning in the Middle Ages and continuing to the present day, this monumental study analyzes thirty of the regionG«÷s most important estates and introduces dozens of others. Although the primary focus is on the houses and the families that built them, gardens, grounds, and interiors are also illustrated in detail, including examples of furniture, decorative arts, and paintings. Splendid and surprising, these remarkable structures and the magisterial book that celebrates them display Central Europe in its full glory.

About the Author: Lord Michael is a scholar based in London who specializes in modern European history. His works include Britain's Greek Empire, a study of Corfu and the Ionian Islands under Venetian and British rule. Gerhard Trumler is a professor of photography in Vienna and a professional photographer whose work has appeared in over fifty books.

Book Description Abbeville Press September 2005, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. Preeminent scholar Lord Michael Pratt brings his passion for history and grand architecture together in three texts that take readers on tours through the magnificent country homes of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland. Beginning in the Middle Ages and continuing to the present day, these authoritative studies analyze these countries' most important estates, chronicling the dramatic histories of the noble families that constructed and remodeled castles, fortresses, and baroque manors to suit their tastes and herald their wealth and power. Based on Pratt's seminal work, The Great Country Houses of Central Europe, the three books in this series take the scholarship on these regions several steps further. Each book concludes with an entirely new chapter that provides a house-by-house survey describing and commenting on the restorations--or lack thereof--of the featured estates as they stand today. Pratt helps his readers look at the homes with an expert eye, and a new practical guide includes hours of operation for those who wish to see the estates themselves. The Great Country Houses books are richly illustrated with specially commissioned photography, featuring images of houses, the families who built them, gardens, grounds, and interiors.
