The English stately home reached its apotheosis in the 19th century as the most eminent architects of the era blended tradition and innovation to create larger, more elaborate and more luxurious houses than ever before. This magnificent volume draws on the archive of Country Life magazine to present 150 colour and black and white photographs - the fullest visual record yet - of the greatest houses of the age, including Pugin's Scarisbrick Hall and Barry's Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey.
