In this well-researched account of the Coventry family since Sir Thomas, an Elizabethan lawyer, bought Croome in the 16th century, Dr. Gordon charts their rise to Baron Coventry then, by 1697, Earl of Coventry. The author describes the transformation of Croome by the 6th Earl, who employed 'Capability' Brown and Robert Adam to create a country seat of elegance and beauty, now being restored by the National Trust. Widely acknowledged for its significance in the evolution of landscape design, Croome Park is the most important legacy of this celebrated family. Published in association with The National Trust.
