Chatto & Windus, London - ISBN:0701131195, 1988. Hardcover, 9" x 10½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. GOOD book in GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Landscape format, blue cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, colour illustrated endpapers, over 100 full-colour photographs, and bibliography. In this book Lucinda Lambton describes and photographs some extraordinary curiosities, often hidden down English country lanes, in unremarkable city streets, behind garden walls and unwelcoming facades - an underwater smoking room; an eighteenth-century 'cottage ornee'; walls decorated with shells, fossils and painted birds with real feathers; a 1908 Yorkshire cottage all but covered with tiles; a vicarage with six chimneys, each the replica of a church tower; London flats disguised as castles, etc. There are houses in churches, in medieval castles, in trees; triangular houses, circular houses - Lucinda Lambton has visited them all and writes about them with great humour and wit.
