The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

Received quickly and it’s beautiful. Said it was in good condition but I feel the condition is even better than stated.

A beautiful book

I had some of the stationary years ago, and didn't realize until I was at a second hand booksale the other day that the artwork was from a book. What a treasure of drawings! And how wonderful to think that someone a)saved it and b) had the courage to reprint it exactly as it was, handwriting and all. Worth it just for the artwork, plus you get a view into the world of the women of that time. Having just seen the film "Miss Potter" and how hard it was for a woman to be taken seriously as an artist in England, this book is a delight to find.

a thinking woman's diary

edith holden weaves a marvelous spell with her beautiful watercolor paintings, her daily wonderment at the flora and fauna she observes, and her quotations of poetry to accompany every month. the poetry reflects both the physical world and all that it represents to the human spirit that beholds it. a lovely gift for a thinking woman, especially (but not necessarily) one who loves her garden.

The ultimate nature journal.

I purchased this book as part of our home school lesson. I wanted to teach the children about nature journaling. We live in a fabulous area with many of opportunities to observe nature. The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady looks exactly as she had written it, beautiful drawings with proper name labels as well as her observances of the mother nature.This was a joy to look through and read. Very inspirational and it goes well with my growing collection of Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian books.
