Tinniswood:  Life in the English Country Cottage
Book Number: 32125
London Weidenfeld 1995 4to hardcover 216pp index, colour & b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. This is a guide to the history, social function and architecture of the English country cottage. Loosely based on Mark Girouard's classic survey, "Life in the English Country House", this look at the development of the English cottage covers three central areas of interest - building, living and working. The building section exanmines the architectural changes dictated by need and fashion from the Middle Ages to the Arts and Crafts movement. The living section looks at the difficulties of family life and stylistic trends according to tase of society. The final section of the book, on working in and around the cottage, examines the various uses to which the cottage was put in its rural context - from baking and brewing to textile outworking. nnBook DescriptionnA splendid illustrated history of the myth and reality of English cottage life over the last seven centuries, with 240 photographs, paintings, and drawings. Now in paperback. Whether Cotswold stone or a harmonious blend of timber-frame and thatch, the English cottage is an enduringly romantic symbol of country life at its most seductive. The ideal of cottage life is one that has tempted writers and artists for the last 200 years, but as this volume reveals, it was not always idyllic. From the medieval village to the 20th century, architectural historian Adrian Tinniswood traces the history of the cottage, exploring how they came to be built, the materials used to build them, and how they evolved. The focus of the book, however, is firmly on people: how cottage dwellers spent their time, what they ate and where they slept, and how they decorated and furnished their homes. A lively portrait, richly presented with 240 illustrations. Adrian Tinniswood is the author of Historic Houses of the National Trust and Country Houses from the Air. 216 pp 9 x 10 1/2 120 color & 120 b/w illustrations --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
