From the Publisher:

"Splendid . . . Those buying this almost-too-attractive book in order to luxuriate in the range and beauty of its illustrations should be warned that the text is both challenging and seriously instructive."
        -- Gillian Tindall, Times Literary Supplement (London)

"Well written and beautifully illustrated...a social history that embraces many themes and raises many important questions."
-- Douglas Johnson, The Spectator (London)

"Mark Girouard has the architectural expertise, the descriptive skill and the social connections to make a lucid and exemplary guide to this world."
-- Julian Barnes, The Literary Review (London)
