Nunwell Symphony




A history of the Oglanders of Nunwell, a family from the Isle of Wight whose family estate has housed several generations. Rather than depicting nobility, the book provides "a simple picture of the life of the country squire and his family in the changing times of the past eight hundred years" (10). This might be usefully compared to Vita Sackville-West's family history and the history of the house at Knole.
