The English Country Inn - Garry Hogg

B. T. Batsford, 1974, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Price Clipped. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “A country inn could have been a haunt of highwaymen, whether in Wiltshire or Essex; could have been notorious for cock-fighting, whether in Hertfordshire or Yorkshire; could have been frequented by smugglers, whether in Devon or Kent; could have sheltered fleeing kings or pretenders, whether in Hampshire or Dorset; could have been originally the guest house of an abbey, whether in Berkshire or Sussex. But, be it half-timbered or tile-hung, of granite or of limestone, the inn is as necessary a feature of the rural scene as the parish church or the village green.
