The Royal Pavilion, Brighton, is one of the most famous and opulent royal extravaganzas in existence. First built in 1787 for the Prince of Wales as a neo-classical marine villa, it had by the time the Prince became king in 1820 grown into the extraordinary Indian/Chinese fantasy it is today. This book reproduces for the first time all the important surviving designs, used and unused, for the exterior and interior of the Pavilion. The 308 illustrations, of which 111 are reproduced in color, capture all the variety, magnificence and exotic luxury of the extraordinary building.
