Who doesn't know this lovely book! Rizzoli publishers have bought this beautifully illustrated original diary of Edith Holden back to life.  Filled with a naturalists 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. Capitalising 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.

In addition, almost every page features Holden's exquisitely beautiful paintings of birds, butterflies, bees, and flowers, all of which reflect her deep love of nature. The paintings, executed with a naturalists' eye for detail, and the sensitive of an artist, and words, composed with a poet's touch, combine to make A Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady a unique view into a world open to few, and singular treasure that can now be appreciated by everyone.

This souvenir of a bygone era 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.
