A lot of general good information about the role of servants in an Edwardian household is presented, and tied in to the Edwardian Country House cast experiences, and that's what makes this book good, but not informative about the Edwardian Country House project. Lots of bonkers typos (calling Alexander Graham Bell "Robert Graham Bell") and inserts on how to make Edwardian crafts at home that look like page layout errors until you get used to them.

The Edwardian age (1904-1914) was the last time the rich could afford to build enormous country houses surrounded by formal landscaped gardens.

As thorough as the series was, there are reams or reels or whatever of footage that never made it onto TV, so this book provides more information about Edwardian life, the participants and events of the series.

The Edwardian Country House" gives an insight into the romance and reality of Edwardian society and evokes the "golden" years before World War I. In this illustrated book, Juliet Gardiner explores the key events in the social calendar of a wealthy Edwardian family - a fancy dress ball, a society dinner party, a village fete, a musical evening, a shooting party - from not only. The points of view of the family, but also from that of the servants.

It was first aired weekly in the UK beginning in April 2002 and was later broadcast in the United States on PBS stations in 2003 as Manor House, where extra footage was added.

All used books sold by Book Fountain Books will be free of page markings. The text by Juliet Gardiner is well written and the photography is superb. The companion book to the PBS offering is faithful to the show of the same name with even more historical information about the time period. The cast of characters who made the show such a joy are featured in the book, of course, but we also get to see their real life counterparts who previously lived in this manor house before the turn of the century. I highly recommend this book if you are a student of history. Best-selling in Fiction Books.

This is a large, coffee table-sized book, but much more than "just a coffee table book." There are gorgeous photos, but also a lot of informative text - about the participants in the series (profiles of each, plus snippets of conversation and such), history of the manor house (Manderston) and additional details about the show. If you are interested in country house servants of the Edwardian Era, this book is a surprisingly good reference work. I also enjoyed the pieces on Edwardian county life, recipes (food, such as the chef's pineapple-mint moulded jelly, and beauty creams), tips of the era such as how to wash corsets, fold those intricate dinner napkins, set a table, floral arrangements etc. The photos as noted are beautiful, in somecases showing things not gone into much in the series (such as Lady Oliff-Cooper riding sidesaddle in full Edwardian dress - she an Miss Anston supposedly rode together regularly - I didn't know before, as no scenes of this were shown in the series that I recall (though they do show the older son riding and mention that Miss Anston had become very fond of the horses). There are also a number of period photos, including some of Manderston - a shot of the Manderston kitchen maid from Edwardian times is facinating, for example. I am really happy with the book and only wish I'd purchased it years ago.

I love this book! I had borrowed a copy from a friend, and could not bear to part with it, so I had to order my own. It has a lot of history, in addition to a vivid picture of life in those times. Plus there are great recipes and crafts. I made an evening bag that I just love! You will definitely want to netflix the show.

I missed most of the series on PBS, but what I saw looked very good, much better than the earlier 1900 House. This book is the companion to the TV program and is really better suited to those who have seen it as I found some parts a little confusing due to not having watched most of it.
The book gives a good background on the house itself but is skimpy on the program, reads almost like it is about a real Edwardian family, no details on family selection or what happened after their stay was over.
All of the photographs are very good, the little extra sections on the cast I found interesting (likely would've been better if I'd actually seen the show), the side bits on foods and other items were even interesting.
I did notice that, as in 1900 House, the experts setting up made a surprising blunder, here they forgot to check the possibility that a decades unused chimney might be blocked (which it was). Another thing I found little mention of was the Silver stair railing (does the show mention it?), something so unusal and only a couple of photo captions about it.
Not enough to be a time travelers textbook but a very good companion to the series.

This was a fun read after seeing the series. Long before Downton Abby, the series recreates life in the English manor house. Interestingly, only one person in this recreation was happy with his life in the manor house and that was the Lord of the Manor. He was the ONLY one who had any sort of freedom at all.

This is an excellent companion to the Manor House series on PBS. It combines the historical background of the Edwardian period, information about each of the participants in the project, recipes and instructions for making items seen in the series, and information that was not shown during the series, such as the story behind the pig's head (and whether Monsieur Dubiard was trying to gross out the Oliff-Coopers) and more about Guy's education (a surprise there!). I only wished it had information on the selection process and what happened after the series ended.

Interesting to read about how they lived back in the old days!

I am thoroughly delighted with this book, having never seen "The Edwardian Country House" series. Anyone interested in the Edwardian era, British society at the turn of the 20th century, and cultural histories will enjoy the book. It's beautifully done, as well, with gorgeous illustrations throughout.
The book is in good shape, and covers the series very well. Glad I found it .
