Hatfield House was built in 1611 and has for over 300 years remained the seat of the Cecils. In this book Lord David Cecil, the 4th Marquess of Salisbury, describes the history of both Hatfield House and the Cecil family. Neatly divided into three parts, it begins with the founder and original builders, Queen Elizabeth's stalwart William Cecil, Lord Burleigh, and his son Robert, the First Earl of Salisbury. The second part traces the history through the next 200 years, and the third covers the late Victorian and Edwardian periods when the 3rd Marquess, Prime Minister for 14 years and one of the greatest and most enigmatic statesmen of all time, was in the ascendant. Lavishly illustrated with 32 pages of colour plates and 120 monochrome photos, reproduction artworks, facsimile documents, etc. "A masterpiece of research and family achievements" The Times, 1973.
