Burke's Guide to Country Houses, Volume 2
This volume covers Herefordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire: about 600 seats in these four countries are dealt with in fascinating detail. The individual entries generally comprise a photograph or two, an architectural commentary and a brief history of the property and its devolution, with the odd anecdote and human touch, plus bibliographical references.
