A Country House Companion ** SOLD **
A Country House Companion
London: Century Hutchinson, 1987.
A companion piece to Girouard's bestselling Life in The English Country House, this is a selection of diaries, letters and wonderful images which describe the delights and horrors of a bygone age.
In the era of servants, the English contrived entertainments on a massive scale, with backbreaking labor for the underlings, in many cases.
A fascinating study.
