Sm. 8vo., original blue cloth backed marbled paper covered boards, gilt lettering on spine, top edge gilt, others uncut. Edges faded and a tiny bit of rubbing to very edges of marbled paper, occasional darkening to edges paper but generally a very good copy.

A very successful small book from the Press with some excellent engravings by Gwenda Morgan. Sandford wrote of them: “technically dextrous, they were also delightfully interpretative of village life in England and the unchanging face of the land”.
