Country Houses from the Air - Adrian Tinniswood

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1994, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ. Tiny closed tear to top edge of upper wrap near corner.

Throughout the centuries, the English country house has reflected a wide variety of tastes, lifestyles and interests. Each house possesses a character all its own, mirroring the lives that have been lived in it. From familial power struggles to the dramatic changes wrought by fashion, time or progress, the country house has changed with the years. This unprecedented exploration of the country house's evolution features striking contemporary aerial photographs juxtaposed with rarely seen historical engravings made centuries ago. While archival material offers a unique glimpse into the grandeur of the original design, bird's-eye photography affords a unique opportunity to view these houses in the context of their surrounding gardens and countryside. 160pp. Index.
