Full Description

Large 4to. 33 + (3) + 307 + (1)pp, the second pagination sequence including 272 full-page photo plates. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper (the wrapper slightly age-spotted and split at top of spine).
A handsome picture-book providing excellent photo illustrations of castles and country houses in the present-day Czech Republic, many of them of seventeenth and eighteenth century date and architect-designed. It is strange that a volume giving such prominence to the former residences of the exiled landowning class should have been published under the then Communist regime.
