Buchbeschreibung Thames & Hudson, London, 1974. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Near Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Very Good. First Edition. Hardcover in unclipped dustjacket which is lightly worn and soiled with some rubbing and creasing to edges, minor chipping to spine head, and a small area of laminate lifting. Brown cloth gilt, all clean and bright with sharp corners and spine tail lightly bumped. Contents clean and crisp with offsetting to endpapers and a few spots to page edges but no inscriptions or other markings. Introduction by Roy Strong and essays by 25 contributors including architectural historians, conservation experts and country house owners. Between 1875 and 1975, hundreds of our great houses disappeared and the contributors were predicting that without drastic action, the rest would surely follow. Section I spells out the story of loss with over 300 demolished country houses illustrated in unique historic photographs (a detailed list at the end of the books extends to over three times that number). In Section II, seven owners of country houses describe their very real struggles to keep going. Section III reviews possible solutions to the problem - legal sanctions, The National Trust and Government aid. 192 pp; 383 b/w ills. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Buchbeschreibung Thames and Hudson, London, 1974. Softcover. Gray & illus. wraps, 192 pp., 383 bw illus. "During the last hundred years our country houses have been the tragic victims of social change. Not less than a thousand buildings, many of them of outstanding beauty and interest, have been destroyed. The rest will follow unless drastic action is taken. Do we want to keep them? If so, who pays for them? This book shows the extent of losses since 1875 (over 300 are illustrated in unique historic photographs), describes the struggles of present-day owners to keep their houses as going concerns, and suggests some of the solutions that might save this major part of our national heritage in the future." (back cover) The text is a collection of 25 house- or topic-focused essays. Uncommon. G (Outer spine shows moderate use with a line in the spine and some of the plastic coating peeling from the cover; covers also have average wear to edges; book block edges are tanning but page surfaces are clean and text and illus. are clear.).

Buchbeschreibung Thames and Hudson 1974. First edition., London, 1974. Buchzustand: Near Fine. Brown cloth-bound hardback, dust jacket. 192 pages. 383 b&w illustrations. .95kg. English. Near fine; some offsetting of jacket to endpapers, light shelf wear to jacket with light browning, slight wear to forecorners and head and base of spine, short 2cm tear to lower edge of rear jacket; a very good copy, not price-clipped, no inscriptions. A scarce copy of the hardback edition of this groundbreaking book on the destruction of country houses in Britain. The book was published concurrently with the exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. It acted as a call-to-arms to stop the demolition of stately homes that had started in the 19th century and which gathered momentum after the two World Wars when the upkeep of these houses became too expensive and impractical. The campaign garnered much coverage and achieved much success in its aims. 'The first section spells out the story of loss. Over 300 demolished houses are illustrated in unique historic photographs (a small proportion: a more detailed list at the end of the book extends to over three times that number), many of them buildings of outstanding beauty and interest. The great parks, equally irreplaceable, have usually disappeared even more completely. The contents of the houses - the pictures, furniture, books and archives - have been dispersed, losing much of their original significance. In the second part seven owners of country houses describe their very real struggles to keep going, struggles which are ultimately not only for themselves but for us and for posterity as well. The third part reviews possible solutions to the problem - legal sanctions, The National Trust and Government aid.' (from the blurb).
