218 DAKERS, Caroline. Clouds : The Biography of a Country House. First Edition in dustjacket.
Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 1993, ISBN:0300057768 
DAKERS, Caroline. Clouds : The Biography of a Country House. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, (1993). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xviii,1-278, + 16 p. of colour plates, and including dozens of black and white photos to text. Decorated endpapers. Large 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Almost before it was completed in 1886, Clouds was being described as 'the house of the age'. Designed by Philip Webb, one of Britain's greatest architects, this country house in Wiltshire was commissioned by Percy and Madeline Wyndham, an aristocratic couple with a sophisticated tastein design. In this handsomely illustrated book Caroline Dakers tells the s tory of Clouds: its planning and creation; the art commissioned to adorn its walls; the activities and interests of the three generations of Wyndhams who lived in it; the famous people who visited it; the sale of the house inthe 1930s; and its eventual transformation into a charitable institution. Dakers vividly recreates the lives and personalities of Clouds' colourful owners. Percy and Madeline Wyndham were at the heart of late Victorian cultural life, and their guests were talented writers and artists such as Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, John Singer Sargent, Leighton, Whistler, and Watts.
