192 pp, 9 1/8" H. B&w plates. "(This is) an area which is as rich in its history, its associations and its architecture as any in England. Richmond Palace may now no longer exist, but Ham House and Kew Palace remain, and with them a varied and delightful series of smaller domestic buildings, including town houses, terraces and former country houses, particularly of the eighteenth century. It is of these houses, and of the life which has been lived in them during four centuries, that (the author) writes. The story begins with the creation in the twelfth century of the Royal Manor of Richmond and continues, as a provincial microcosm of English history, through the ages of Elizabeth, the Stuarts, the Georges and Queen Victoria to the (early 20th century)." Two sharp creases down the front free endpaper, minor wrinkling at the top/bottom of the spine, some pages with tiny foxing marks at the top edge. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, very light browning and some light foxing marks - mainly on the inside surface. light soiling on the panels.
