The Exiled Collector: William Bankes and the Making of an English Country House

John Murray; 2005

A gripping book about William John Bankes, pioneer Egyptologist and renowned traveller. I loved reading about William’s adventures abroad and at home in England. Anne Sebba knows how to tell a good story. Her book is one of the sources of “Writer’s Travel Guide: Kingston Lacy”.
