National Trust Country House Album

by Christopher Simon Sykes
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
English country houses can in many ways claim to be the actual birthplace of photography in England, for here the class that could afford to dabble in the new art form was able to create for history a record of its grand dwellings and lifestyles. The well-known houses in this study no longer function as family homes but are a part of the National Trust. This pictorial history of the homes and the various families that dwelled in them shows servants as well as famous guests and everyday scenes as well as more imposing interiors and exteriors. Of great interest to anyone concerned with England's architecture, history, or way of life.-- Barbara Bartos, St. Croix Cty. Lib., Hammond, Wis.
