The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady
As a visual and literary portrait of the seasons from a naturalist who chronicled a year in her beloved English countryside, this book serves as treasured testament to Holden's gift as a wordsmith and artist.
Until its first publication in 1977, Holden's diary remained a private, treasured family heirloom. Since then, it has come to be cherished by all. An international best seller, the diary serves as a charming reminder of a beautiful bygone time.

This is an utterly charming book! It captures the way I would love to be able to live my life in the country when I am retired. The drawings are gorgeous and the daily sightings of flora and fauna captivate.

This is truly a beautiful book! I owned it many years ago, but lost it in the process of several moves, and eventually even forgot the title - until I saw it on your website! Needless to say, I was VERY happy to find it, again, as it felt like I was regaining a long lost, old friend! Thank you for this wonderful surprise!!
