Life in an English Village

We had a lovely morning round the charity shops looking for LPs with interesting covers and books with lovely illustrations. We were delighted to find in the Amnesty Bookshop a  rare first edition ( 1949)  of "Life in an English Village". It has sixteen original colour lithographs by Edward Bawden and numerous black and white drawings of teapots, staffordshire dogs, corn dollies and basketware. A delight as you can see.

  1. You're right. This is a delight. A very real treat. I love the King Penguin series and you are so lucky to find this treasure.
