AN INTIMATE, gracious book with an atmosphere that will not be easily forgot- ten. The Shropshire home which the author recalls, is peopled with the most vivid characters and set against the absorbing background of Nineteenth-century Britain during its entry into the machine age. The private diaries and unexpected glimpses of well-known people are fascinating, and the intimate friends of the family included the Ladies of Llangollen, Jack Mytton and Nimrod. 12 ½-tone plates and endpaper map. An uncommon book in any edition.
