The House library

Our collection of 18th and 19th century texts, and contemporary works on architecture, design, construction, and history.
Focused principally on the Georgian and Victorian eras, the library contains texts on architecture, construction, interior design, and social, political, and economic history. The collection includes original works from the 18th and 19th centuries, contemporary material from established publishing houses, and self published pamphlets such as the Town House Times, our friends' newsletter.
