The British Country House in the Eighteenth Century

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2000 - 333 pages
This work explores the British country house during the period 1700-1830 and looks at the lives of both the noblemen and the servants who inhabited them. It provides insight into many different areas: the role and rank of family and sevants, furniture, landscape, architecture, painting, scultpture, style, food and entertainment are all discussed and allow him to invoke a sense of 18th-century life as it was experienced by the inhabitants of these homes. Reference is made to the whole of the British Isles and there is a discussion of the political significance of the country house in the Georgian period.
