Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with colour photographs and drawings. From the cover: “The sights and sounds of the countryman's year as it follows its age-old pattern from Wolf month (January) to Yule (December) are sensitively woven into a colourful tapestry. The characteristic events of the country year are described month by month. Even in winter, when all seems hushed and sleeping, animal tracks can be seen on the snow-clad ground and the first lambs are being born. The morning freshness of springtime greens and yellows provides a backcloth to the food of the drowsy, newly-woken hibernators and the bustle of the returning migrant birds. In summer, flowers and insects, interdependent for their survival, flaunt their brilliant colours. Then a blaze of red-gold glory ushers in the fruitfulness of autumn. Crops are gathered, harvest suppers and shooting parties are and nature's preparations for winter are well in hand.”.
