Pictures from English Homes Vol III, No. 1, Late Tudor & Early Stuart, 1558 - 1649, 1922.

This is a huge book, measuring 40×28cm (approx. 11×16 inches), and it used not to fit on my scanner. Since then I got a new scanner, a larger one, and I can more easily publish the images. The pictures are out of copyright (published before 1923 in the US, and UK photographs taken before 1957)

“It will be noticed that the ceiling is a reproduction of that in the ballroom at Knole (Fig. 294). The panelling is similar to that in the dining-room below, and all came out of the Quenby attics. It forms a beautiful and subdued background for the interesting pictures and [...] latter there are four pieces, evidently of a set, of fine colour and design and with admirable early seventeenth century borders. Horesemen are hunting lions, tigers, and other animals in forests. With full regard to the old spirit, the floor was made of oak planks of varying widths, but all broad and massive. The room has three bays, of which the great ones over the porches give immense character to the room. That over the entrance door is all window, there being ten lights. It is a delightful vantage ground from which to enjoy the grand western view.” (pp. 293, 294). [more...] [$]
