Now owned by the National Trust, Knole is today visited by thousands annually. Here, drawing on a wealth of unpublished letters, archives, and images, the current incumbent of the seat, Robert Sackville-West, paints a vivid and intimate portrait of the vast, labyrinthine house and the relationships his colorful ancestors formed within it. It's a drama in which the house itself is a principal character, its fortunes often mirroring those of the family. Every detail holds a story: the portraits, and all the items the subjects of those portraits left behind, point to pivotal moments in history; all the rooms, and the objects that fill them, are freighted with an emotional significance handed down from generation to generation.--From publisher description+-+3654227535891ocn040179790book19970.14Inventions that changed the worldHistory+-+6407791275324523ocn059386004book19990.16Healey, TimThe last adventureHistory+-+8838791275324371ocn041959530book19990.14Mason, AntonyForging the modern age, 1900-14A brief illustrated history of the first decade of the 20th Century+-+0818791275324342ocn043339192book19990.14Hosie, RobinBrave new world 1945-70+-+2038791275324241ocn222223255book19990.17Healey, Tim70 wonders of the modern worldHistory152ocn221835178book19960.17West, Robert SackvilleLife in ancient RomeHistory113ocn150375884book19980.28Sackville-West, RobertKnole, KentGuidebooks91ocn222525138book20000.10Mason, AntonyForging the modern age71ocn851988380book2010Sackville-West, RobertThe story of Knole and the SackvillesSince its purchase in 1604 by Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset, the house at Knole, Kent, has been inhabited by thirteen generations of a single aristocratic family, the Sackvilles.
