A hand-colored copperplate engraving from the George Glazer Gallery appears on the cover of the 2009 paperback edition of the novel Incognito, a romantic comedy by Suzanne Allain set in Regency England. A View of the Noble House and Part of the Garden of Castle Howard was drawn and engraved by A. Walker for Laurie & Whittle, London: c. 1800-10.
One of the designated Treasure Houses of England, this English country house was built at the beginning of the 18th century for the Earl of Carlisle, a member of the Howard family, in North Yorkshire, England. The Howards still live there today and it is also open to the public as a historic house. Castle Howard appeared as the fictional “Brideshead” in the 1981 television and 2008 movie versions of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited.
The actual engraving shown above is still available for sale on our web site.
