The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

Penguin Random House

9780847858903

This beautifully packaged facsimile of Edith Holden's original diary is filled with a naturalist's masterful paintings and delightful observations chronicling the English countryside throughout 1906. As one of the few true records of the time in print, the handwritten thoughts and paintings contained in  The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady  transport readers to a more refined, romantic, and simpler time.

Capitalizing on the current  Downton Abbey–Inspired appetite for Edwardian-era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction brings readers back to a time in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. This souvenir of a bygone was serves not only as a calming touchstone, but a reminder that as long as we choose to see it, we are still surrounded by beauty and grace. Presented to retain the charm and beauty of the original volume filled with Holden's hand-drawn illustrations of the English countryside's flora and fauna through the changing seasons of the year, as well as handwritten notes, observations, and quotations,  The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady  makes a lovely addition to any home's library or side table.
