In 1950, intended as a fitting (and useful) tribute to Edwin Lutyens, Country Life published a three volume authoritative work on his architecture. All of Lutyen's output was illustrated. The first volume, which covered the Country Houses has always been the most popular and sort after, hence it's republication under a separate title here.
