Text by Catherine Calvert. Photographs by Jeff McNamara. Designed by Alexander Isley Design. The British outfitters in London guided settlers in their new pared-down style of living, providing safari gear and steamer chairs. Expats bought furnishings from local craftsmen to accompany their homeland gear, and created a new style that married Victorian love of home with simple living. Vintage engravings and 250 full-color photographs bring the reader into locations in London, New York, India, and East Africa. Clarkson, Potter Publishers, NY.1993. Hb. Dj, USED. $20.00
