Gervase Jackson-Stops’ The English Country House in Perspective is broad . Images from The English Country House in Perspective.

Gervase Jackson-Stops’ The English Country House in Perspective is broad in its chronology, from Bodiam Castle as it appeared in 1400 to Castle Drogo started in 1911, albeit in Norman style. It happens that Highclere, the actual setting of Downton Abbey, isn’t included in the book. Neither is Wrotham Park, the filming location for Gosford Park. However, several of the book’s other country houses certainly offer an ambience the Crawleys or Sir William McCordle’s weekend guests would have appreciated  .

Gervase Jackson-Stops, Brian Delf. This book presents twelve of the richest houses in Britain, each an archetype of its age, and looks at them both as architectural masterpieces and as evidence of the life for which they were built, and together they give a unique overview of the development of British architecture and gardening through six centuries. I LOVE looking at country houses, and even I was struggling with the amount of detail in this, mostly because i That I've been reading this book for almost a year is telling.

The houses have scarcely been altered since they were first built, and together they give a unique overview of the development of British architecture and gardening through 600 years, from the medieval fortress of Bodiam Castle in Sussex to Lutyen's Castle Drogo in Devon, and from the Tudor half-timbering of Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire to the romantic Victorian of Norman.

The prospect or bird's eye view is one of the oldest and, in its time, most popular ways of portraying the great country house and its setting. In the early 18th century almost every house of any size or importance became the subject for one of these views, depicting in fine detail the magnificence of house, garden and park--and by implication, of its owner.Not only can views of this sort capture the character of a place far better than photos, they can also show far more than the eye can ever see. As in a doll's house, roofs are lifted and facades are cut away to reveal the internal workings of houses that were more often then not part art gallery, part estate office, part political showplace, part home for the great families who lived in them.THE ENGLISH COUNTRY HOUSE IN PERSPECTIVE presents 12 of the richest houses in Great Britain, each an archetype of its age, and looks at them both as architectural masterpieces and as evidence of the life for which they were designed. The houses have scarcely been altered since they were first built, and together they give a unique overview of the development of British architecture and gardening through 600 years, from the medieval fortress of Bodiam Castle in Sussex to Lutyen's Castle Drogo in Devon, and from the Tudor half-timbering of Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire to the romantic Victorian of Norman Shaw's Cragside in Northumberland.Wholly different from anything published on the subject in the past, THE ENGLISH COUNTRY HOUSE IN PERSPECTIVE adds a new dimension to the treatment of visual history, examining the layers of social and intellectual progress that these buildings and their gardens represent, and taking full advantage of their immense historical value.
  • The pictures, overall, are not good. The walls get in the way, and the best drawing is the one on the cover. Lots of very specific info about a handful of houses, but unless you're interested in those specific houses, this book does not deliver. The "dollhouse" cutaway pictures do not reveal very much of the actual rooms, with many of them only reviewing a few rooms on what is otherwise a huge house. Would rather have seen just floorplans and pictures. A disappointment for the drawings, but very detailed writing and research.

  • Aside from being a pleasure to look at, the perspective views make it easy to see how these houses were lived in. This can be done with words, but the pictures give a better idea of how much or how little privacy people had, and how likely it was that dinner would be cold by the time it reached the dining room!

  • One of the most informative and inspiring books on the English Country House I own (and I own a LOT!). The combined views of the exterior construction and the decorative interiors give you a far better idea of the way they relate to one another than separate photos or drawings. I will be referring OFTEN to this as I work on properties and plans.

  • Really lovely, well-researched book of many of the lovely old country homes of England. The cutaway views and the architectural plans are fascinating. Lots of interesting history.

  • Wonderful prospectives of how the houses were constructed and laid out. I found out it very helpful and recommend it especially for writers of historical novels.

  • Needed for research project

  • Really a wonderful volume. As a fanatic collector of floorplans of British architecture, country houses in particular, this book is invaluable to me. Even the unwieldy Knole House in Kent is tackled with skill and pathos, represented in block plan that nonetheless illustrates the design and extant plan of this bear of a mansion (its legendary 365 rooms can only be guessed at, but this helps to peel away a little of the mystique). Not only are the buildings beautifully represented in color illustrations and reasonably detailed plans of multiple stories, but the narrative descriptions of the architecture and the social history of these great buildings is written in fine and engaging prose. I commend the author and offer full marks to anyone interested in some of the finest representations of English country house architecture.

  • Hardcover; 160 pages; 9.5" x 12.3"
    Small map of Britain to locate buildings. Featuring Bodiam castle & 11 grand English country houses. All have beautiful color cutaway views, detailed floorplans of most levels of every house, and the history of the houses. This is refreshing because so often with other books I've read there are floorplans of only the first floor. This is one of very few books that contain enough content whereby a drafter could re-construct plans of the buildings.
    Not all of the featured buildings have the following: some show landscape drawings; some show original renderings; some have photos of the interior; some have detailed drawings; some only have the artist's rendering of the homes.
    Great value if price remains discounted.
