Excerpt from Chats on Writers and Books, Vol. 2<br><br>There are many famous houses in England well known to the readers of history and to the lovers of literature. There are Marlborough House, Devonshire House, Chesterfield House, Lansdowne House, Strawberry Hill and Cam bridge House, whose history and associations go back at least to the times of Elizabeth and of James, but none of them calls up so many strik ing scenes, incidents and brilliant notabilities as Holland House, and none of them is so deeply impressed upon our literature.<br><br>Celebrated as it was in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, it was in the first half of the nineteenth century that it reached its greatest fame and became known the world over.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
