Beautiful books for beautiful people...

In His Own Country - STREET, A. G.

Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1950, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Good DJ. Unlaminated DJ a little edgeworn and faded with wear at the head and tail, rubbing at the corners, and notable spotting. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Scattered spotting throughout but heavier to start and end.

Selected from five of Street's books that published between 1934 and 1945. Here then is as much of twelve years of country life as can be contained between the covers of one book - the good and the bad, the vice and the virtue, the beauty and the ugliness. If you would meet your country cousins at every financial and social level, here they are. Here is no twisting the big thing, our lovely countryside, to suit the little thing, the writer's ideas; but a Wiltshire fanner admiring, and loving, and criticizing what he knows to be his nation's most precious possession, the countryside and its people.
