What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, With Dustwrapper
The first edition of this work in the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original price-clipped dust wrapper. Ink inscription to the front free end paper, dated 1944. A book about the English countryman and the trials of farming, by English ruralist journalist and farmer Adrian Bell, who also wrote the "Countryman’s Notebook" column in the Eastern Daily Press. Illustrated with drawings and lithographs by noted landscape painter John Nash.
In publisher's original cloth binding, with original price-clipped dust wrapper. Externally, cloth is very smart though a little bumped to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, with the odd spot to the first and last couple of pages, and to the fore edge, affecting the occasional page. A corner of the front free end paper has been cut off. Dust wrapper is bright but has a loss to the rear of the wrap and a little chipping to the spine and folds. Tape repairs to the verso of the wrap.
Very Good Indeed
