Price: USD$35.00

From the accession of Elizabeth I in 1558 to the death of James I in 1625, a delayed renaissance swept England, pervading the domestic architecture and interiors of the day and signalling the emergence of a peculiarly English form of architecture.

Timothy Mowl explores with erudition the social and cultural history of the time and the way that it is reflected in contemporary furnishings, interiors and architecture. This magnificently illustrated book, with specially commissioned photography, shows the splendour of the architecture of Elizabethan and Jacobean houses in a timelessly absorbing manner.

"A handsome introduction to the world of Jacobean chic."—Sunday Telegraph

"It is a marvellous book for two reasons. First, Mowl is that rare thing, an architectural historian who can write. Second, he is a man with a new thesis who challenges the orthodox view."—Financial Times
