What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

Trilogy by English Adrian Bell based on his early farming experiences at Bradfield, St George, Suffolk. 'Corduroy' was published in 1930 and was an immediate best seller, followed by Silver Ley in 1931 and The Cherry Tree in 1932, each celebrative of the country side and rural life. 

This the first edition thus with beautiful illustrations by Harry Becker both in colour and in black and white.

In the original, unclipped dust wrappers. 

Adrian Bell was an English ruralist journalist and famer, the first compiler of The Times crossword.
