Color Photographs; 208 pages; A lovely unread copy with faint edgewear.; The story of the four Lennox sisters is also a 'rich social history of eighteenth century Britain. The daughters of the Second Duke and Duchess of Richmond lived in magnificence as mistresses of some of the most splendid houses in England and Ireland through turbulent times, from the Jacobite Rebellion to the French Revolution.'This companion book for the BBC (PBS) series carefully details how their lives were made into a lavish television drama and the text is entirely different from the biography by Tillyard which was the basis for the series. Photographs reveal the spectacular treasure trove of houses, furniture, objects, and paintings commissioned by the sisters as well as numerous stills from the series.
