Life at Burghley

Life at Burghley: Restoring One of England's Great Houses
by Victoria Leatham [914.253 Lea]

Anyone with a fascination for English castles and English history would enjoy reading this book. Written by Lady Victoria Leatham, the current owner of Burghley Hall, the book uses humor and family stories from the point of view of someone raised in this Great House to illustrate the importance of maintaining collections of art and treasures from Europe's past.
