A lust for window sills : a lover's guide to British buildings from portcullis to pebble-dash by Harry Mount( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever wondered why the floors in our terraced houses are different heights? Or what the landscape round where you live looked like before it was built on? And did you know you can date a building by its window sills? A LUST FOR WINDOW SILLS tells us why and how. Harry Mount takes us on an engrossing tour of the nation's architecture, exploring the quirks, foibles and tiny details that make our buildings unique, and revealing the fascinating stories and anecdotes behind them along the way. We see every historic building style in Britain in one hour's walk across London, from the Norman apse of St Bartholomew's in Smithfield to the National Gallery's Sainsbury Wing, via Gothic in Holborn, Sir Christopher Wren in the City and the Knights Templar at Temple. A trip up the M4 reveals some of our greatest country houses, while a visit to Stonehenge, Avebury and Silbury Hill is a journey back to the Bronze Age. This book is a lively, entertaining and affectionate portrait of our history and the Britain we live in today

Summer madness : how Brexit split the Tories, destroyed Labour and divided the country by Harry Mount( )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a day-by-day account, Harry Mount gives an insider's tale of the three chilling weeks of mass blood-letting due to Brexit. As events unfolded at a scarcely believable pace he found himself close to the centre of events. He talked with many of the principal combatants, even as he wrote articles for the Evening Standard, the Spectator and the Sunday Times, and it is this unique level of access that has made for a compelling narrative about the referendum which will be seen in years to come as the definitive event that changed the United Kingdom, and quite probably Europe, forever
The wit and wisdom of Boris Johnson by Boris Johnson( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intelligent, ruthlessly ambitious and prone to gaffes that the press and public take equal delight in, Boris Johnson is the darling of the Tory party. This collection of his wit and wisdom, edited by eminent journalist Harry Mount, covers his education, his journalism, his politics, his time as Mayor of London, the Olympics and his personal life. It begins with a substantial introduction exploring his time in public life, not ignoring his personal indiscretions. This book has the full support of Boris Johnson himself."--Publisher description

Of the four classical orders of architecture, three were invented by the Greeks and the fourth, the only one the Romans could come up with, was a combination of two of the former. The powerful ghost of ancient Greece still lingers on in the popular mind as the first great civilization and one of the most influential in the creation of modern thought. It is the starting block of Western European civilization. In his new Odyssey, eminent
