Case bound, 245 x 165mm, over 250 pages with more than 100 illustrations and maps, mostly in colour

The fascinating story of the life and times of Charles Gregory, 9th Viscount Fairfax of Emley, an enigmatic figure whose finest achievement was the creation of one of England's finest Georgian town houses, at 27 Castlegate.

The Fairfax name is an illustrious one and this book draws together the many strands of this family -  from the American landowners who owned five million acres of Virginia, to the newspaper magnates of Australia.
