The Lost Mansions of Mayfair

Front Cover
Historical Publications, 2008 - Architecture - 255 pages
Internationally renowned, Mayfair is comprised principally of the important estates of the Grosvenors and Berkeleys. It has always been an area where the affluent resided. This work is the first to catalogue in detail the architectural losses of this area. It provides detailed descriptions in text, photographs and drawings, building on the work of the Survey of London in providing such a record. Though describing the losses, it also contains an appendix of the best of the survivors for the reader to see in Mayfair or in nearby Marylebone. Owners, key artisans and, of course, architects are listed. Fully indexed.
