Country Life magazine 1897-1940

Country Life magazine commenced publication in 1897 and remains the quintessential magazine of British country life and property today. Each weekly issue contains an illustrated main article on a country house / historical building. The early issues contain an important record of the design, decor and furniture, building alterations and gardens over the past 120 years. Notable contributors include Christopher Hussey, Oliver Hil, Gertrude Jekyll, Sir Lawrence Weaver and R Randal Phillips.

Since 1997 we have been supplying national institutions such as English Heritage, The National Trust, museums world wide and private owners and occupiers of stately homes and historic buildings with original issues featuring their properties.  The articles are also a valuable resource for restorers, interior designers and historians. We supply you with the original issue beginning with the portrait frontispiece and including the main feature of the house listed. Stocks are limited but we will be cataloging and listing further issues regularly as we acquire them.
