Product description

Review

Chatsworth, Arcadia, Now is about the most sumptuous book I've seen in a third of a century of book reviewing. It charts the story of sixteen generations of Cavendishes' involvement with one of the two or three grandest and most beautiful houses in Britain -- Andrew Roberts, author of GEORGE III

Just about the most mouthwatering book produced this century... Gardens, landscapes, libraries, wild flower meadows, works of art, architecture... Bliss! -- Alan Titchmarsh MBE

This glamorous, artistic book is a fitting tribute to a decade of renovation... One could say that the book is a collection piece in its own right... Breathtaking still-life studies underline the connections and contrasts between old and new... The sense of a great house with a vibrant past, present and a future is palpable -- Jeremy Musson ―
Country Life

Anyone who cannot visit in person can now luxuriate in this astonishing book, with its brilliant photographs fabulously staged and daringly laid out... as glorious as the house itself -- Clive Aslet ―
House & Garden

Book Description

A strikingly modern portrait of Chatsworth, the grandest of English country houses
