From Library Journal:
Impeccably designed and lavishly illustrated, this volume allows us to wander into a part of the European heartland hitherto closed off to all but the most adventurous. Here we encounter chateaux, mansions, and castles that in size and splendor rival their counterparts in western Europe. Lord Pratt, an independent scholar, provides a historical introduction to each of the three countries of the region. He focuses primarily on the families that built and maintained these regal dwellings, with updates regarding their fate since World War II and their uncertain future after the fall of communism. Family photographs of the late 19th and early 20th centuries are included, as are four outstanding maps. The copious detail may be more than some readers wish to absorb, but Trumler's photographs of these national treasures unfailingly surprise and satisfy. There is an extensive index and a useful pronunciation guide. Highly recommended as a visual delight and an unusual introduction to a newly opened region.

Buchbeschreibung Abbeville Press, NY, 1991. Hardcover. Green cloth, gilt letters on spine & front cover, glossy olive and color illus. dust jacket. 380 pp. Color and bw plates; weighs nearly 7 lbs. "As glorious and compelling as the houses it celebrates, this landmark volume presents the rarely-seen treasures of Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Poland, nations that shelter a superb selection of Europe's finest country houses, built over the course of centuries for some of the continent's most distinguished families. Richly illustrated with newly commissioned photography, [this book] tells the stories of these magnificent buildings and the families that constructed them, immersing us in the vanished world of the region's aristocracy. With a wonderful combination of brisk scholarship and wry wit, Lord Michael Pratt set his discussion of the houses and their patrons against the backdrop of Central European history -- indeed so intimately were the personal lives of these families interwoven with the political and cultural lives of their countries that to proceed otherwise would be impossible."
