Description: The story of a house and of the people who lived in it during its almost 400 year history. It was built – and its construction involved a murder – in 1577; it played its part in the Civil War, an exciting part for its owner, a Royalist living in a Puritan community; it was sold after the War and, but for a stroke of fortune, nearly lost to a tough old lady who deemed the great panelled a hall an admirable place for raising geese. And so, through the years, encompassing the Georgian period, Victorian era, and ending with the 20th century, the author tells the stories of the people – some rich, some poor; some happy, some tragic – for whom the house was a home.

Burgundy boards with gilt text on the spine. B&W photograph of the author on the rear flap.

Textured, unclipped jacket (12s 6d net) in good condition: some nicks and scuffing, but otherwise complete. The book itself is in very good condition: the pages have become slightly yellowed, but have resisted foxing. There is a small grubby mark on the fep. The board corners are straight.

Very scarce in jacket.

Measures 19 cm × 12.5 cm (7.6″ × 5″). Large 12mo. 365 pp.
