The House: Living at Chatsworth Hardcover. Deborah Vivien Freeman-Mitford Cavendish. For anyone interested in old English country manor houses, their furnishings and art work, this is great reading. Chatsworth is decidedly one of England's finest and I enjoyed learning about its history down through the years and particularly how it was run back when servants were plentiful, as well as the funds to support it on a grand scale. This huge treasure house and substantial grounds are a work in progress as change constantly occurs and this particular written portrait was informative, beautifully written and described room by room.

A good read for country house aficionados.
