Lost but not forgotten,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: England's Lost Houses (From the Archives of "Country Life") (Hardcover)
This is a simply marvellous book that will have pride of place in many a bookshelf, and which will be read time and time again. It takes one back to a vanished world that was superbly captured in L.P. Hartley's "The Go-Between". The size, range and breadth of the amazing country houses illustrated in these pages takes one's breath away and the accompanying text is both intelligent and poignant, matching the sadness of the photos themselves. Highy recommended.
