A legend...a richness of literary and cultural detail.

A lush, captivating book, overflowing with sumptuous illustrations.

Delightful yet erudite...perhaps the most charming lesson on interiors ever written.

The true subject is not interior decoration but ruminations and memories, the visions and fancies, prompted by paintings of interiors.

A most wondrous treasure trove....The professor's comments and narrative are entertaining and scholarly...its interest is almost inexhaustible.

Illustrated is an understatement; Praz uses 400 pieces of art to present his 1982 history of furniture and decorations from olden days to modern times. An unusual but interesting history of the subject.

A most wondrous treasure trove....The entertaining and scholarly...its interest is almost inexhaustible.

The sweep and quality of [Praz's] mind raises this book far above the level of most others on this well-explored topic.


An indispensable reference source for anyone with an interest in period styles of furniture and decoration, this renowned book comprises a complete survey of domestic interiors portrayed in art from the ancient world to the late 19th century. Available again after some years out of print, it presents a wonderfully rich collection of pictures of a type seldom reproduced anywhere. Around 400 paintings and watercolours from all over Europe, Russia and America record with faithful accuracy rooms of all periods and their contents: the furniture, fabrics, carpets, pictures and wall-coverings. This is a classic text that goes beyond scholarly commentary to present a fascinating cultural history of man in relation to his domestic surroundings.

A really great book. I am still reading it and find it extremely interesting. My only problem is that most pictures are in black&white. I'd really love to see the colours of all these works of art representing interiors. As there is no other comparable book in the market that I know of, buy it, you'll learn a ton of thins, but if the editors could come out with a full colour version, that would be great!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is The Premier Book on Interior Decoration! 3. August 2000
Von sherri j. thorne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you want to get an excellent idea about the history of the domestic interior, this is the book for you. Every type of dwelling is to be found, with exquisite detail. From the very simple, to the palatial, one finds great delight in these wonderful watercolors. Culled from the domestic interiors of Europe, the Continent, Russia and America, these historic records give the reader an extrodinary glimpse into the past. It is an accurate record of the most minute details, from the floors to the paintings on the walls. Scholarly enough for students of Interior Design? Yes; but why should they have all the fun?

3.0 von 5 Sternen GREAT BOOK, BUT MOSTLY BLACK & WHITE 6. Januar 2011
Von Blue Ridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Of the 400 illustrations in this excellent book, only 64 are in color, & most of those are less than a page in size. At least that's true of my 1981 Thames & Hudson used hardback . I was quite disappointed by that when the book arrived, so want to warn other enthusiasts in advance. I've been looking but so far haven't found a possible later edition with more color. Still, I'm glad I own this mostly black and white copy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen what an amazing volume! 7. November 2010
Von reviewer from Los Angeles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book covered everything I was curious about relating to design as a lay person. Through redecorating my own home, I became very curious about furniture, molding, fabric and other details and kept wondering what the differences were really about between all the styles and their history. Most of us laypeople just get a sense when a room "works" or "does not work" but lack the historical perspective. Beautifully illustrated, the book itself is visibly the work of a master and passionate soul - I read on Wikipedia that Mario Praz started collecting chairs when he was 13 years old or so!
5.0 von 5 Sternen oops, boogered again. The review that was meant for this mario Praz 29. Januar 2013
Von A. Wood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The review that was meant for this Mario Praz book was put on "The Romantic Agony" -- but they are both very fine books and actually my review has similarities for both. This one is beter for reference if you are researching objects, the other better for the Zeitgeist.

1.0 von 5 Sternen disappointing 3. Oktober 2014

Very centered on Victorian, English interior decoration, so disappointing as content not as implied by title
