A set of these three somewhat undervalued volumes, edited for the National Trust by Gervase Jasckson-Stops, in retrospect perhaps too miscellaneous in content to serve the purposes of the National Trust or of Sothebys, but providing scholarly articles by distinguished contributors on the history, interiors and contents of National Trust-owned country houses.
