Format: Hardcover
A wonderful new Housekeeping book from the National Trust. This book is not just one for the serious reader, although it is very professional and in depth, but for anyone with an interest in historic homes and collections. Beautifully illustrated with fascinating photographs from National Trust houses, it is full of intriguing historical detail, practical advice and is infused through with a passion and enthusiasm for history and beauty that is really exciting. A book which rewards both coffee table leafing and really serious reference; it has everything!
