The Pevsner Architectural Guides were a series of guide books on British architecture, published between 1951 and 1974. The series includes a book on the architecture of Buckinghamshire, the county in which Lionel Kessler's  country house is set.

The guides were written mainly by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-1983), a German-born academic and scholar in the field of art and architectural history who settled in England in 1933.
