The definitive book on the most influential English country house architect and designer. This beautifully produced book celebrates the work of Robert Adam, the great eighteenth-century architect who influenced generations by stamping his distinctive neoclassical aesthetic vision on the English country house interior. Lavish new photography provides a deeply visual exploration of Adam's most important surviving country houses, to which the author and photographer gained unparalleled access. Included are magnificent country houses such as Syon House and Harewood House--styled and inspired by the ideal of the neoclassical--as well as Adam's castle-style Mellerstain and town houses such as Home House-- all captured in splendid detail. Original Adam design drawings, from Sir John Soane's Museum, illustrate the boldness of planning, color, and creative interpretation of Adam's domestic interiors. A biographical and contextual account of Adam's life and work describes his unique design process, his patrons, and the legacy of his design achievement. This richly illustrated volume will appeal to designers and homeowners as well as traditional architecture enthusiasts, promising to become an important addition to any architecture and interior design library.

Das Schloss von Otranto ist ein Roman des britischen Politikers und Schriftstellers Horace Walpole aus dem Jahr 1764. Walpole begründete damit die später sehr erfolgreiche Romangattung des Schauerromans (Gothic Novel). Der Roman stellte einen Bruch mit den Idealen der Aufklärung dar, die naturalistische Darstellungen und natürliche Erklärungen in der Literatur in den Vordergrund stellten. Er ist Vorläufer der romantischen Geschichten und Erzählungen des späten 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts und beeinflusst die Literatur bis in unsere Zeit. Zur Inhalt: In Das Schloss von Otranto wird das für seine Familie verderbliche Wirken einer mächtigen Vaterfigur (Manfred) geschildert, die sich tyrannisch und intrigant um die genealogische Nachfolge sorgt, als sein schwächlicher Sohn von einem mysteriösen Riesenhelm erschlagen wird. Manfred, nun ohne Sohn und Erben, stellt daraufhin des Sohnes versprochener Braut Isabella nach, die er zuvor für diesen entführen ließ, um eine Verbindung zwischen seinem Fürstentum Otranto und dem Herrschaftsbereich des Marcheses von Vicenza, dessen Tochter die Braut ist, herzustellen. Nun will Manfred Isabella vergewaltigen, danach seine devote Ehefrau Hippolyta verstoßen, um dann Isabella heiraten zu können. Isabella graut es jedoch vor ihrem alten, finsteren Verfolger und versucht kurz nach Manfreds "Antrag" aus der Burg von Otranto zu fliehen.

Baddesley Clinton was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. This long history can be read in its walls. The model of a medieval moated manor house, Baddesley Clinton has much to tell us about England's historical architecture, although interpreting all that history can be a challenge.This guidebook is intended as a companion to your visit and also to help you read the trickier-to-read sections of the building's history. Indeed, Baddesley Clinton is full of intriguing corners and secret hiding places. Constant in their adherence to the Roman Catholic faith, the Ferrers family made their home a sanctuary not only for them, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters here during the 1590s.The stories of the house inspired the residents who came later, including Henry Ferrers, a lawyer, diarist and antiquarian. Proud of his family's history, he filled the house with coats of arms in stained glass, carved oak and stone. Later still, a group of artists came to Baddesley Clinton and found it a source of great inspiration; after them a couple who devoted their energies to restoring what you see today, before giving it to the National Trust for safekeeping. This house has inspired people in many ways, and with the devotion to its care now the task of the Trust, it's hoped it will inspire many more.
