Waddesdon Manor is one of the most extraordinary houses in England. Over 125 years ago, Baron Ferdinand Rothschild transformed a barren hill in the countryside outside London into the setting for this breathtaking estate. Over the years, he assembled an outstanding collection of French decorative art, to which his heir (his younger sister Alice) and in turn her heirs (their French cousin James and his English wife Dorothy) added many complementary furnishings, paintings and drawings. Today, Waddesdon Manor - which is open to the public - is admired not only for its architecture and luxurious and colourful French interior decor but also for its collections of superb English portraits and Dutch Old Masters, as well as its books, manuscripts and exquisite textiles. This lavishly illustrated volume draws on much previously unpublished material to present a fascinating portrait of the splendid Manor and its Rothschild inhabitants.
