About this Item

Horizontal folio (15" x 12") in original black cloth boards (now protected under stiff clear mylar cover) with gilt titles to front and spine and small gilt illustration at bottom right corner of front board. Shelfwear with very minor warping and some sunning and scuffing to spine. Corners bumped and scuffed with tiny loss of cloth at a few points. Overall however a binding that has retained its color, strength and structure. Some spots of foxing to page edges. Text block has some, generally light, foxing to page margins. Triangular light water stain to top of each page at inside margin but not extending to text or plates. All text and reproductions crisp, clear and unmarked and all retaining the wonderful dark/light contrast characteristic of wood engravings.Initial letters of each chapter are illustrated "illuminations" from wood engraving and there are additional small designs at the end of many of the individual chapters. A beautiful volume by one of the 20th Century's most celebrated printmakers and chroniclers of country life. Uncommon in the U.S. First Edition (stated) which was published in the same year as the British first. Leighton's concerns regarding the demise of traditional agriculture in England were a major motivation for this heartfelt narrative and masterly collection of engravings. In Leighton's own words, "a look at what is being lost". Clare Leighton was born in London in 1898 and studied at the Brighton, Slade and Central Schools of Art. She emigrated to the United States in 1939, became a U.S. citizen in 1945, where she lived until her death in 1989. Bookseller Inventory # 72371
