Explore Countryside Flora and Fauna with This Classic Naturalist

Every single page of Edith Holden's The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is a celebration of beauty. Richly illustrated and hand lettered, this 1906 journal was never intended for publication, but rather to record Holden's thoughts and observations as she watched the seasons come to pass in the English countryside. Her mastery shines in this deceptively simple yet elegant look at the birds, plants, and insects of her local environs, along with favorite poems and her own notes.

Edith Holden was an art teacher and became well known as a children's book illustrator. Her paintings were shown in prestigious galleries including England's Royal Academy of Arts.

Though widely regarded as a talented artist, the diary she kept over the course of a year was shared with no one during her lifetime. It was first published some seventy years after she meticulously recorded this intimate view of a year in Warwickshire and soon became an international bestseller. It is the perfect companion for naturalists and anyone wishing to surround themselves with the sights and sense of the great out of doors.
