About this Item: The Country Book Club, London, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. Becker, Harry (illustrator). First Thus. Hard Bound in dust jacket. Ex-Library with the usual markings. Illustrated by Harry Becker. Front flap of dust jacket cut and affixed to front fixed end page. Edge wear to dust jacket and green boards, otherwise good. At the age of 19 he ventured into the countryside in Hundon, Suffolk to learn about agriculture, and farmed in various locations over the next sixty years. Out of his early experiences came the book Corduroy, published in 1930. Bell's friend, the author and poet Edmund Blunden, advised him and helped secure his first publishing deal. Corduroy was an immediate best-seller and was followed by two more books on the countryside, Silver Ley in 1931 and The Cherry Tree in 1932, the three books forming a farm trilogy.
