The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden

The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden

Model Number: 80718115813

£10.00 GBP
First published in 1977. 26th impression 1992.

A facsimile reproduction of a naturalist’s diary for the year 1906. Edith Holden recorded in words and paintings the flora and fauna of the British countryside through the changing seasons of the year.

Edith Holden’s words, all carefully written by hand, include her favourite poems, personal thoughts and observations on the wildlife she saw surrounding her home in Warwickshire, and on her travels through England and Scotland. The exquisitely beautiful paintings on every page of birds, butterflies, bees and flowers, reflect her deep love of nature; they have been executed with a naturalist’s eye for detail, and the sensitivity of an artist.

For seventy years, this enchanting and unique book lay undiscovered. First published in 1977, this full-colour facsimile edition, now published for the first time exclusively for Marks and Spencer, recaptures all the freshness, charm and beauty of the original.

The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is a book for all seasons, a gift for all times.
