In a lively and often controversial text, Mowl and Earnshaw challenge established views on the careers of Inigo Jones, John Webb, and Roger Pratt, and dismiss the myth of Isaac de Caus. Their main focus is the architecture of the country house within its garden, but church design and urban planning in the capital also feature. As the first published work on a time of great stylistic change, this study presents a complete reappraisal of the architectural character of Cromwell’s England.
