The author gives a fascinating account of Cliveden's past: the two earlier houses that were dramatically destroyed by fire, the creation of the gardens and the seven families who have lived there. Some of the richest men and most powerful women of their day have played a part in the story of Cliveden, including Nancy Astor, whose husband Waldorf was given Clivedon as a marriage present from his father. There is a dedication on the front endpaper which reads ' To Frank, with heartfelt thanks for giving us so many happy memories of the Williams Team ' and signed individually by the Astor family. It is also signed by the author on the title page. The D/W shows light shelf wear to the rear panel.
