I bought this booklet to investigate Cobbe's insight into historic interior. While I hoped there might be more information concerning libraries (I am a librarian of a special collections library) I found the book a mother load of insight and information that was helpful for me. I am pleased to have this booklet in my library.

Alec Cobbe clearly has been very influential on country house 'hanging,' and appears almost single handedly to have revived teh 'crowded wall' look. Not sure this always works, as you will see from the excellent photographs. Short essays in teh book are quite interetsing.
