A charming addition to Rizzoli’s carefully curated program of bringing classic books back into print.

This beautifully packaged facsimile of Edith Holden’s original diary is filled with a naturalist’s masterful paintings and delightful observations chronicling the English countryside throughout 1906. As one of the few true records of the time in print, the handwritten thoughts and paintings contained in The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady transport readers to a more refined, romantic, and simpler time.

Capitalizing on the current Downton Abbey–inspired appetite for Edwardian-era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction brings readers back to a time in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. This souvenir of a bygone era serves not only as a calming touchstone, but a reminder that as long as we choose to see it, we are still surrounded by beauty and grace. Presented to retain the charm and beauty of the original volume filled with Holden’s hand-drawn illustrations of the English countryside’s flora and fauna through the changing seasons of the year, as well as handwritten notes, observations, and quotations, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady makes a lovely addition to any home’s library or side table.

About the Author:

Edith Holden (1871–1920) was born at Kings Norton, Birmingham, one of seven children of a Midlands paint manufacturer. The family lived in the small village of Olton in Warwickshire and it was there that she wrote and illustrated the book. After attending art school, she worked as an illustrator, with her drawings being published in several books.

New Hardcover Quantity: 1

Grand Eagle Retail
(Wilmington, DE, U.S.A.)

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. Naturalist Edith Holden recorded in words and charming paintings of the flora and fauna of the British countryside throughout the changing seasons of the year 1906. Undiscovered for more than 70 years, it was found by her great niece and published in 1977. The book became an instant sensation that spawned spin-offs and merchandise tie-ins, but then went out of print for more than 20 years. This facsimile edition presents Holden's words, all carefully written by hand, including 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. In addition, almost every page features Holden's exquisitely beautiful paintings of birds, butterflies, bees, and flowers, all of which reflect her deep love of nature. The paintings, executed with a naturalists' eye for detail, and the sensitive of an artist, and words, composed with a poet's touch, combine to make A Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady a unique view into a world open to few, and singular treasure that can now be appreciated by everyone. A charming addition to Rizzoli s carefully curated program of bringing classic books back into print. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780847858903
