  THE GREAT HOUSES AND FINEST ROOMS OF ENGLAND The Duke of Marlborough, The Marquess of Salisbury The Marquess of Bath, The Earl of Harewood and others talk to the editor of House & Garden about their houses in the world today  THE GREAT HOUSES AND FINEST EOOMS OF ENGLAND T h his book is an altogether new approach to the well-worn subject of Britain's Great Houses, for this is not onlya magnificent picture book with photographs by Michael Wickham and Ray Williams, but also a contemporary record of how the owners run these great houses. Thebook contains a series of long interviews between the Editor of House & Garden and the owners, who talk freely about the pleasures of possession and also about the manifold problems attending the ownership ofsuchhouses today. One of thesurprisingthings to emerge from these frank explanations is the clear demonstration that, far from being in decline, the Stately Homes are flourishing — as increasing thousands of visitors discover their incomparable treasures. A brief but authoritative architec- tural history ofeach house, supple- mented by old prints and engravings, is an additionalfeature that helps to make this the most unusual and hand- some book about the Stately Homes that has appeared in many years.
