The Manor Houses Of England
All Books are second hand
The object of this book is to describe and illustrate the old country manor-houses of England, which are fast falling into decay, and are being replaced by modern and less picturesque buildings. Many of them stand in remote, inaccessible and little-known parts of the country; and their remarkable beauty, their historical associations and architectural merits, may have escaped the attention of many who love to explore the English countryside. - From the Preface.
