No. 49 of 50 special signed copies printed on mould-made paper. 12 full page illustrations (one for each month of the year) and 4 elaborate botanical borders by John Nash. 8vo., original maroon cloth with Pudney’s signature in gilt on the bottom right hand corner of upper cover, spine lettered in gilt.

A really fine example of John Nash’s charm and superb illustrative skills showing his place in the British Pastoral tradition.
