Description: "Until the First World War, for hundreds of years, country estates had been run as a complete way of life. To do this, and to live in the style expected of a gentleman's family, a lot of servants were needed. By about 1850 the very grand estates belonging to Dukes and Earls had stewards, servants and tenants which sometimes amounted to a small army in number.
This book is about an imaginary country house called Wennington Manor in the year 1900, and the family and servants who lived there."

Lovely colour illustrations throughout – many of which are full-page.

Glazed pictorial covers have just the slightest hint of foxing near the title, but are in otherwise excellent condition. Internally, the book is effectively as new – rare for a 35-year-old paperback.

Measures 8.8″ × 5.8″ (22 cm × 14.5 cm). 8vo. 32 pp.
