English Country Houses PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

English Country Houses free pdf This book offers a brief history of the English country house from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, and of the people who built and lived in them - from common squires to kings and queens. This wonderful book was undoubtedly written by someone who had a great sense of pride in England and everything it stood for- a morale booster for a British people layed siege to by times of war. Written during the Blitz, a time when entire cities were being destroyed, 'English Country Houses' demonstrates a yearning for the safety supplied by the buildings she describes.
