This magnificent and lavishly illustrated book is the fruit of nearly forty year’s research by two acknowledged experts in the field. Its core is the rich heritage of wall coverings discovered in the historic mansion, followed by examples collected from innumerable country houses throughout Britain. English papers predominate but there are many from France, America, China and Japan giving a wide picture of styles and techniques.

A large group from Ashburnham Place, Sussex and from Jeffrey & Co, the most dynamic late 19th century manufacturer, give a particularly strong picture of fashionable and advanced Victorian taste.
