Can't really say much about this product - hence only 3 stars - as it was bought to give as a present so I didn't read it.

However, it arrived on time, looked very good, and so that's about all I can say. Recipient did not report back!

HASH(0x9c80200c) out of 5 stars Fascinating 10 Oct. 2007
By Pedro Fernandes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a very good book on a fascinating family and a grand estate. Holkham is without doubt one of the grandest of the non royal estates, it really is quite a stack of stones. The history makes the house all the more interesting. The images in this book are very good and the text is very well researched. A must have!

An exceptionally well written account of the building, builders, and custodians of a magnificent piece of history. Would that this sense of stewardship were more widespread.
