"Girouard's synthesis of his own previous work and the work of other eminent architectural historians makes the book a very useful reference tool, which is bound to become a key source for students of Elizabethan architecture."-Rebecca Roberts, Cahiers Elisabethains -- Rebecca Roberts * Cahiers Elisabethains *

"As one might well expect from a scholar who has dominated his field for over a half century, [the book] is nothing short of magisterial in its authority and encyclopedic in its range. . . . Between the bookends of the 1540s and 1630s, this full, gloriously illustrated (even by Yale's standards), and extensively documented work simply brims with copious examples of virtually every sort of architectural construct characteristic of the chosen era."-Robert Tittler, Sixteenth Century Journal -- Robert Tittler * Sixteenth Century Journal *
