NASH, Paul. DRINKWATER, John. ~ Cotswold Characters.
5 wood engravings by Paul Nash. 8vo., original straw coloured speckled paper covered boards with printed paper label on upper cover. Slight rubbing to very edges of the boards, small indentation from a paper clip on front free endpaper but no staining, very mild spotting to fore-edge, otherwise a very good copy.
The characters described and illustrated are Thesiger Crowne the Mason, Simon Rodd the Fisherman, Rufus Clay the Foreigner, Pony the Footballer and Joe Pentifer and Son. Drinkwater lived in the Cotswolds and this was his attempt to describe the Cotswold yeoman who “is as unoriginal and as new and vital as an oak tree or a starry night”.
