Care for Victorian Houses

A series of eight-page A4 illustrated booklets for owners of Victorian and Edwardian houses. Each booklet contains information about the history, design, materials and construction of one element of the house. Reading lists, addresses, places to visit and other useful information are also included to enable readers to carry out further research. Text by Kit Wedd. They are currently out of print, but we hope to revise them soon in a different format.
