Greater Medieval Houses of England and Wales, 1300-1500: Volume 1, Northern England

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Nov 13, 1996 - Architecture - 450 pages
This the first of a three-volume survey of more than 700 greater houses of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries which survive in England and Wales, and the first to be undertaken for over 150 years and by far the most comprehensive to date. All major and most lesser houses are appraised, taking account of their architectural development and historical relevance. They are grouped by region, prefaced by short introductions which establish their historical and architectural context. Volume 1 describes nearly 200 houses in northern England, and contains over 200 illustrations, 100 plans and maps, appendices and a full bibliography.
