For five centuries, the magnificent country houses of the English ruling classes were the settings for their pleasure and politics, tangible expressions of their authority and confidence. With the decline of the country house in the mid-twentieth century, many aspects of this way of life unique to England have disappeared forever. Here Mark Girouard recreates this era, compiling an anthology of personal anecdotes and reminiscences about these country houses by people who lived in them, worked in them, or visited them--from queens to kitchen maids. 027241

Clean dust jacket is unchipped, not price clipped, has one short closed edge tear. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Stretching some 200 kilometres between Kingston and Ottawa, the Rideau Corridor encompasses a wealth of rural charm. At its heart, the Rideau Canal connects a series of rivers and lakes to create one of the most picturesque waterways on the continent. Throughout the nineteenth century, hundreds of buildings were constructed here of stone, because of its availability and the number of skilled masons who remained in the area after their work on the Canal. Photographer Fiona Spalding-Smith and historian Barbara Humphreys have chosen as examples many fine structures that demonstrate the incomparable beauty, versatility, endurance and strength of stone. 027365
