    It is a great book that goes beyond my expectations. Great information, maps and pictures that add to the house itself. I bought it because I had hoped that Thomas Thorpe and his workshop would be mentioned and given credit for the work done in 1623/24. He is a direct ancestor of my husband. All of it is referenced and the history of James I is also explained. Praise for the amount of scholarship and plain hard work done by the team.

    This is a fascinating chronicle about the saving of a priceless piece of history. Thanks to the actions of many, including a sympathetic government, great things were achieved in England, despite the sacred nature of a free market economy. The belief that every individual can do what he likes with his property can have horrible ramifications, especially when its owners seek to destroy what is a national and world treasure. This is the story of how that was prevented, for the benefit of all. It is an inspirational story, and one that provides hope when art and culture around the world are in peril.

    Excellent book on the architecture and history of Apethorpe, one of the grandest English country houses.
