Editorial Reviews


'...outstandingly well informed about the documentary sources concerning old houses and their occupants ... of great help to the historian as well as the general reader.' - Times Educational Supplement; '... will be fascinating to owners of old houses. It very readably gives an introductory guide to dating houses from their architectural styles, plans and materials, and to racing their history from documents... As the book sensibly concentrates on modest houses rather than mansions it will have a wide appeal.' - Solicitors' Journal; 'This sort of information is not contained elsewhere in such concise and usable way.' - Architects Journal --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a gift to me. I found the contents interesting and if I go to the U.K. it may be of service in dating an old structure. I am a restoration timber wright and for that purpose the book has no value technically for restoration, (as the gift was intended.) It also seems to focus on the domestic architecture of only the U.K.. With that said, the research and documentation of the text appears valid, and may add those seeking circa dates of buildings and some of the history.
