The Regency Country House is the first book to provide a comprehensive survey of the key English country houses of 1800 to 1830. It is written by John Martin Robinson, leading architectural historian, herald, and librarian to the Duke of Norfolk, who is author of numerous books including Buckingham Palace the official illustrated history. This new book is divided into three parts: it looks at the princely palaces and houses associated with the Prince Regent, from Brighton Pavilion to Buckingham Palace, the nobleman’s houses such as Tregothnan, Eastnor Castle and Goodwood and gentleman’s houses such as Southill, Bedfordshire and Sheringham, Norfolk. The book will illustrate work by leading country houses architects including the Wyatt dynasty, Henry Holland, John Nash, Thomas Hopper, Humphry Repton and Sir John Soane – as well as regional designers such such as Dobson of Newcastle and Webster of Kendal.
