    The book was well organized, and accompanied by great text and pictures of the scattered treasures of Strawberry Hill, an important documentation of these wonderful artifacts For those interested in the great houses of england, and the history of Walpole, and his fascinating Strawberry Hill, this book is a must It is a slender volume, but packed with great things, and a great addition to a library.
