Notable Houses of Great Britain
In Britain today there are many 'normal' houses that were once owned by, or been the birthplace of, famous authors, poets, painters, explorers and naturalists. Many are open to the public and the fascination and interests of their one-time occupants are often as diverse as the structures themselves. Classical and contemporary art, literary masterpieces, entrepreneurial engineering, religious symbolism, and the foundations of modern science are all secreted in this miscellany. This book explores 30 such properties, each article comprising of a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable) NB--This title is not suitable for use with 'Adobe Reader for PalmOS'.
