For 70 years, this enchanting and unique volume lay undiscovered until, in 1977, a full-colour facsimile edition was published by Michael Joseph (UK), capturing all the freshness, charm and beauty of the original. It was an instant and lasting international success. The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is a reproduction of a naturalist's diary for the year 1906. Edith Holden recorded in words and paintings the flora and fauna of the British countryside through the changing seasons. Her words, all carefully written by hand, include her favourite poems, personal thoughts, and observations on the wildlife she saw surrounding her home in Warwickshire and on her travels through England and Scotland.

Edith Holden's watercolours are absolutely stunning and the poetry and nature notes included in this work are both lovely and of historical interest.
