4 Planel, Philippe Locks and Lavatories: the Architecture of Privacy
1850747245 / 9781850747246; Step through the doorway of your own home and discover its fascinating past. Today we jealously guard our privacy, but in previous centuries living was much more communal.

Discover how the medieval hall has shrunk to an entrance lobby; why bathrooms only became common in houses after the late 19th century; why separate servants' quarters and staircases were created; why three-legged stools were more popular than four-legged ones; and how labor-saving devices have transformed the home. This is a fascinating look at how our homes have evolved over the centuries; part of the English Heritage Gatekeeper Series. Includes an index. Illustrated in full color with french flaps. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
