The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady: A Facsimile Reproduction Of A 1906 Naturalist’s Diary By Edith Holden

Minimum Donation €27.00

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 has lain undiscovered ; it is now being published for the first time in a full-colour facsimile edition that 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
