Waddesdon Manor is one of the most extraordinary houses in England, 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 books, manuscripts and exquisite textiles. More than 125 years ago, Baron Ferdinand Rothschild transformed a barren hill in the countryside outside London into the setting for this breathtaking estate. The extensive and romantic gardens are renowned for their seasonal flower displays and the Parterre, in particular, has been restored using traditional techniques. In this lavishly illustrated volume, with stunning photography and details from this extraordinarily rich collection, Michael Hall, Editor of "Apollo Magazine", draws upon much previously unpublished material to present a fascinating portrait of the splendid Manor and its Rothschild inhabitants. The only major Rothschild house open to the public, Waddesdon welcomes visitors from all over the world who come to enjoy this unique celebration of le style Rothschild.
