The country house can claim to be the birthplace of photography in England through Fox Talbot's work in the 1830s at Lacock Abbey; and throughout its early years, photography provided an aristocracy well endowed with leisure, money and space with the perfect pastime. Discovered in the attics and albums of Britain's grandest houses, these 300 or more photographs, taken between the 1850s and 1930s, evoke a lifestyle now all but vanished. Reprinted in 2013, with forewords by Nigel Nicholson and Clive Aslet.
