Set in a magnificent walled park surrounded by the marshes of the north Norfolk coast, Holkham Hall is a masterpiece of Palladian English country house architecture. Built by the Coke family in 1612, it has been in their possession continuously ever since, and this book celebrates its four hundred years of history.<BR> <BR> ?Drawing on the meticulous records and documents kept by generations of family and staff, Christine Hiskey offers a brilliantly realized account of its creation, its place within the larger estate and countryside, and its daily life—including the vast changes to its social and economic structures over the centuries. Beautifully illustrated with images of the house, its furnishings and setting, and maps and plans of the house and estate, Holkham is a wonderful tribute to a lost age—one that we can still visit today.
