A delightful 1907 second edition of the seminal interoir design study,
'In English Homes,
The internal character, furniture and adornments of some of the most notable houses of England historically depecited from photographs.'
The two volumes are generously filled with large photographic plates of some England's most fascinating country piles, snapped during the height of the Belle Epoque, when the British aristocracy was at its zenith.
Contemporary blue cloth spines and front covers stamped in gilt with gilt edges. The extremeties are a little rubbed and the fly sheets stamped, labelled and mansuscript annotated with details from the library from where they once were housed.
A sublime interior design study for the serious follower of English country house style.
