This summer, my husband, daughter and I visited Leeds Castle in England. One of the most lovely rooms in the castle was the library. While the castle itself is centuries old, its most recent occupant, Hon. Olive, Lady Baille purchased the castle in 1926. She lived there off and on until 1974 when, at her death, she bequeathed it to the public as a national treasure. This library is as it was in her day, and the furnishings are exquisite. You can read more about this loveliest of all castles by visiting the official Leeds Castle site.
