Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Pages deeply tanned by age.

From the cover: “This book is about the Land of England and its people... the words and pictures attempt to describe the countryfolk's early methods of winning food, shelter and clothing from the land, and to show how these methods changed through the centuries so slowly that many of them can be claimed, if not as contemporary, certainly as yesterday's common practice. In this book Dorothy Hartley presents the life of ordinary English country-dwellers month by month, as they went about their tasks before mechanisation came to the fields, barns and byres.”
