Book Description

"The great country houses of England are unique. Set in huge and magnificent parklands, designed by outstanding craftsmen and filled with exquisite furniture and pictures they form a collection that for fascination and sheer delight is unrivalled in either hemisphere. Two world wars have drained England and now the once-great families, no longer able to maintain their enormous houses and estates, must find some means of doing so. By inviting the public to see their houses they have opened a new and enchanting world, and many owners have gone to great pains to make these visits more exciting and pleasurable. This book is the story of one such family and one such house. Family and house are, of course, entirely fictional."; illustrated by numerous b/w. drawings & cartoons; a scarce title.
