"Expert authors develop specific qualities of Hope's ideas with a wealth of pictorial evidence that shows what he and a multitude of helpers produced. . . . The definitive record and anlysis of Hope's accomplishments. It explores the subject more deeply than the physical exhibition can do and one will return to it for years."—Thomas Gordon Smith, Period Homes

"The effort that went into assembling objects for the exhibition and texts for the accompanying catalogue was fully justified by the results, yielding the most complete panorama of Hope's activities as a designer and collector since the contents of his residences were dispersed."—Christopher Drew Armstrong, College Art Association
