The Regency country house : from the archives of Country life by John Martin Robinson( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over a hundred years, Country Life has recorded the country houses of Britain, and its weekly, illustrated articles form a unique and unrivalled archive. Now John Martin Robinson has drawn on this invaluable resource to provide a comprehensive survey of the key English country houses from the 1790s to 1830 - the dates conventionally considered to be 'Regency'." "Divided into three main parts, The Regency Country House first looks at buildings that reflect the Regency taste in architecture at its grandest: the princely palaces and houses associated with the Prince Regent himself, from Carlton House and Brighton Pavilion to Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as other houses on a magnificent scale, such as Ashridge, Chatsworth and Belvoir Castle." "The second part focuses on the aristocrats who built vast castles and Tudor Gothic and Graeco-Roman houses with astonishingly opulent interiors. Here are Eaton Hall, 'the most extravagant Gothic house of the Regency period', Penrhyn Castle in North Wales, a virtuoso demonstration of entrepreneurial wealth, and Tregothnan in Cornwall, set in a splendidly Picturesque landscape. The final section looks at gentlemen's houses, such as Southill in Bedfordshire, Sheringham Hall in Norfolk, designed by Repton for unostentatious living, and Luscombe in Devon, which survives with its original contents and landscaped park." "The book also illustrates work by leading country house architects, including the Wyatt dynasty, Henry Holland, John Nash, C.R. Cockerell, Robert Smirke, William Wilkins, Thomas Hopper, Humphry Repton and Sir John Soane - as well as regional designers such as Dobson of Newcastle and Webster of Kendal. Important architectural themes of the Regency, the development of the Graeco-Roman style associated originally with the Wyatts, the Gothic Revival, the Picturesque and the cottage orne, and the role of Thomas Hope are also examined." "With two hundred colour and black-and-white photographs, specially selected to highlight major houses and their architects, and an authoritative commentary by John Martin Robinson, this book provides an overview of the Regency period and its legacy."--Jacket

James Wyatt (1746-1813) : architect to George III by John Martin Robinson( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Wyatt (1746-1813) is widely recognized as the most celebrated and prolific English architect of the 18th century. At the start of his lengthy career, Wyatt worked on designs for the Oxford Street Pantheon's neo-Classical interior as well as Dodington, the Graeco-Roman house that served as the model for the Regency country house. Wyatt was the first truly eclectic and historicist architect, employing several versions of Classical and Gothic styles with great facility while also experimenting in Egyptian, Tudor, Turkish, and Saxon modes. His pioneering Modern Gothic marked him as an innovator, and his unique neo-Classical designs were influenced by his links with the Midlands Industrial Revolution and his Grand Tour education. This groundbreaking book sheds new light on modern architectural and design history by interweaving studies of Wyatt's most famous works with his fascinating life narrative. This masterly presentation covers the complex connections formed by his web of wealthy patrons and his influence on both his contemporaries and successors"--

Buckingham Palace : an illustrated history by John Martin Robinson( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buckingham Palace is without a doubt one of the world's most famous landmarks, but The Queen's official London residence has not always presented such a stern and imposing facade. In this illustrated history John Martin Robinson traces the evolution of the Palace from the Duke of Buckingham's elegant villa to the magnificent working institution that it is today. Building his story around the personalites of the monarchs who have lived here--in particular George III, George IV, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert--he describes the changes each made to the building and the fashions and preferences that influenced the decorations of each room. But this is only part of the story. Many of the finest works of art in the Royal Collection are to be found in Buckingham Palace, often still in the rooms for which they wrer commissioned. This makes Buckingham Palace a unique royal residence: at once a busy administrative centre and a superb setting for a world-class art collection
Felling the ancient oaks : how England lost its great country estates by John Martin Robinson( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles twenty of England's most sadly lost estates, telling the history of the aristocratic dynasty that founded them, explaining the circumstances that led to their often fabulously prosperous peak, and then tracing the various, and occasionally outlandish, reasons for their decline and demolition. 150 photographs depict all that was lost: classical landscapes and architectural masterpieces that have gone forever, all too often to be replaced by a military base, a soulless resevoir, or the endless sprawl of light industry and suburbia. By the 1950s the National Trust was starting to be successful in saving and conserving great country estates for posterity, but it was already too late for more than a thousand country houses and their estates that had disappeared since the war. The ancient woodlands were chopped down for their lucrative timber, the house was demolished, the deer park, the cricket ground, and home farm often ending up under concrete for a new power station, housing estate or airport, and at best surviving as green space in the form of blanket pine forestry or a golf course
