This will be a growing list of books on Victorian houses that I have read and would recommend to anyone interested in architecture, interiors or restoration. Don't be put off by any of my constructive criticism. If it is here I am recommending it and if you would like to recommend a book please contact me with the details.

The Victorian Society book of The Victorian House by Kit Wedd. Aurum Press, London, 2002, ISBN 1 85410 875 1. This is a superb book concentrating on middle class British (mainly English) houses. It is not just a great reference but is an enjoyable read from cover-to-cover. I just hope there will be a 2nd edition that is even bigger. Highly Recommended.
The Victorian House Manual is a no nonsense book written by Ian Rock and published by Haynes (The car repair manual people). It is designed to help Victorian home owners understand how their houses were constructed and how to look after and repair them. The book is quite comprehensive and well illustrated but lacks a little detail in places. For the DIY restorer this book is useful. It was published in September 2005 by Haynes, ISBN 1 84425 213 2. Recommended.
Victorian House Style an architectural and interior design source book by Linda Osband. David & Charles, Newton Abbot, first published 1991, ISBN 0 7153 13119 3. An interesting book and very useful resource with examples from middle-class to rather grand houses. My main criticism of the book is that the source illustrations are not always well captioned or tied to the text by references to period, region and popularity of style. The focus seems to be on S.England with odd examples from USA and Australia thrown in for good measure. In the books favour there a lots of illustrations and as a design source it stands up well. Recommended.
How to Restore & Improve your Victorian House by Alan Johnson. David & Charles, Newton Abbot, first published 1984, ISBN 0 7153 8334 5. A very useful and interesting reference book detailing the design, construction, fittings, problems, repairs and modern alterations for Victorian houses. Although this book is now out of print I found it easy to source a cheap copy via Ebay. I also saw copies available from second-hand on-line book sellers at sensible prices. Recommended.
