New book on early nineteenth century life discovered

A Picture History of the Grenville Family of Rosedale House, a beautiful book of watercolours by a little girl, has recently been discovered. The book depicts the life of her family in the early nineteenth century.

The book was auctioned when the contents of a rural Norfolk rectory were being sold recently,and it was spotted by an antiquarian book-dealer named Simon Finch. What a day for Mr Finch!
