   schema:reviewBody ""The National Trust cares for some of the most important, varied and valuable historical collections in Britain. From paintings by Rubens to elaborate Boulle furniture, the enormous range of priceless objects held in the Trust's hundreds of historic properties is unequalled, and many of them are still housed in the places for which they were originally commissioned or acquired. This book brings together some of the best of this outstanding collection." "Divided into themed chapters such as Arms & Armour, Clocks, Paintings, Textiles, Furniture and Transport, Treasures from the National Trust displays and describes each picture in an accessible way, ideal both for those with little knowledge of art history and artifacts and those more versed in the subjects." "Objects are chosen both for their beauty and their historical interest, and range from unique clocks, unusual costumes and rare books to more eclectic objects, such as the bicycles in the Hundred Wheels attic at Snowshill Manor, or even the decommissioned atomic bomb casing at Orford Ness. These valuable articles bridge the centuries, stretching from ancient Greek vases to 20th-century modernist furniture. Featuring stunning photography, this book is an essential guide to the very best of Britain's treasures."--BOOK JACKET." ;
