Hidden treasure houses

£9.99

Product description

In Hidden Treasure Houses, the art and antiques connoisseur James Miller explores eleven great country houses and the treasures they contain. James is a guest in each house and he explores the historical legacies and treasures with each of his hosts. The result is an evocative, highly illustrated, portrait of some of the most beautiful houses in Britain, as well as a unique history of this diverse country. The houses have been chosen for their historical, architectural and geographical diversity - Dalmeny House in West Lothian; Penshurst Place in Kent; Holker Hall in Cumbria; Stanway House in the Cotswolds; Deene Park in Northamptonshire; Burghley House in Lincolnshire; Scampton Park in North Yorkshire; Arundel Castle in Sussex; Sherborne Castle in Dorset; Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire; Althorp House in Northamptonshire. James Miller is a convivial and jovial guide, with a sharp eye for detail as well as an encyclopaedic mind. In Hidden Treasure Houses he brings these incredible properties vividly to life, producing a book which will appeal to historians and antiquarians alike.

Hardback book in very good condition.
