Description
The country house can claim to be the birthplace of photography in England, beginning with William Henry Fox Talbot's work at Lacock Abbey in the 1830s. Through the remainder of the 19th century and into the 20th, hobbyists of the leisured and affluent upper classes went on to make an art form of the new medium, capturing haunting portraits of Victorian beauties, recording family gatherings and lawn parties, and depicting grand estates—among them, Highclere Castle in Hampshire, the renowned stand-in for Downton Abbey. This new edition of a classic photographic collection includes previously unpublished photos re-discovered in the corners and attics of Britain's grandest houses.

"Christopher Sykes has assembled an unparalleled collection of photographs, evocative and lyrical, as a record of a way of life that, in one way, is only now drifting out of living memory, yet in another might be as distant from us as the dark side of the moon."—Julian Fellowes
