Product Description

Great Houses of England & Wales is a history of the most notable houses and the great families, seen as part of the houses they created, where their descendants, in many cases, still live today. This beautiful book is full of memorable characters and anecdotal insight, and is a glorious tribute to what Evelyn Waugh called 'our chief national artistic achievement'. 

Both the unexpected as well as the familiar are revealed in the original photography- the private rooms and the servants' quarters as well as the grand exteriors and state rooms, the gardens and noble landscapes. Included are some of the most splendid examples of English art and architecture, illustrating the work of Inigo Jones, John Vanbrugh, Thomas Chippendale, Robert Adam and Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.
