Houses of the gentry : 1480-1680 by Nicholas Cooper ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the end of the fifteenth century to the closing years of the seventeenth, England underwent radical social change. English architecture changed radically as well, and the homes of the gentry were transformed as members of this class grew in numbers, wealth and importance. This abundantly illustrated book provides for the first time a full account of the houses that were built and inhabited by the upper classes during this rich and fascinating period. Architectural historian Nicholas Cooper explores hundreds of gentry houses, some well known and others far less familiar, and considers their evolution in the light of the economic, political and social changes of the age."--Jacket

Anton Raphael Mengs, 1728-1779, and his British patrons by Steffi Roettgen ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through the diplomat Sir Charles Hanbury Williams in Dresden, Mengs was introduced to key members of the British circle in Florence, such as the ambassador Sir Horace Mann, who provided a crucial link between British travellers and the artistic circles of Rome. This was, of course, the heyday of the British Grand Tour, and in many ways, it was unnecessary for Mengs to go to Britain - Britain, in the wealthy form of its youthful aristocracy, came to him
