English country houses represent a time now past, one of power, prestige, wealth and taste, where the privileged lived in luxury, waited on by armies of servants. This compact yet informative and well-illustrated Pitkin Guide looks at the way these houses evolved, at their heyday and decline, with beautiful photographs of some of the cream of England's great houses.
