    1. This is an excellent little book it does exactly what it says on the tin, so I m having a tough time thinking of anything worthwhile to say about it.There are some lovely diagrams of the buildings, pointing out all the typical features and naming them, and then a wonderful collection of photos showing all the details These are black and white, but mostly still very clear.The best part for me was the diagrams showing typical layouts and room use, especially when thinking about servants quarters I [...]

    2. An interesting and informative, quick look at houses of the Georgian and Regency period in England I wish the illustrations were a little larger since they are quite detailed and interesting Photographs are also included to help identify specific features A good reference for those researching, writing about, or reading about, these time periods.

    3. This is not the most riveting of books, but it does contain some interesting information that will be of use to me as I write my new book set in a Regency house.The information on facades and layout of the rooms was pretty good, but I had hoped for a little on the furniture, too, which the book didn t really go into, so I will have to look elsewhere for that knowledge.Still, it was worth the money I paid for it and is an interesting and useful resource for anyone interested in the architecture [...]

    4. I grabbed this book as a research tool, fully expecting it to be dry reading Happy surprise This is a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of the intimate daily lives of centuries old England I d go so far as to see it s a must read for anyone researching the period and wanting to gain crucial facts for writing about it The author covers architectural styles, building materials, interior decorating, and room by room discussions of urban and country homes.

    5. This was incredibly detailed and helpful While the volume is quite slim, there is no wasted space in it Mr Yorke not only discusses the architecture, but also the social conditions that led to the adoption of various building practices If you are a writer working in the Georgian or Regency periods, this is absolutely a must read.

    6. This book is essential for anyone writing fiction set in these periods It is well illustrated with clear BW photographs, plans, and layouts of houses and rooms It is a superb guide to anyone renovating their Regency house,

    7. This is an excellent research tool It details the architectural styles of Georgian houses, with illustrations, and does a creditable job of discussing rooms and fittings although not in the same detail.

    8. Informative and to the point I like it than thicker books on the topic, for Mr Yorke is able to discuss a complex topic in an interesting, informative and organized way.

    9. Great book very complete and it goes beyond the actual architecture and furniture and includes some history and customs of the period.
