Printing Details

First edition. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine. 26.5 × 20cm, 151pp.

This copy has been signed by H E Bates to the ffep, "with the best wishes of the author, H E Bates"

H E Bates's view of rural England's wildlife, trees, flowers and people along the Ouse and the Nene rivers through Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire and the Fens, and to the sea... with 83 engravings on wood by Agnes Miller Parker.


The blue cloth is rather rubbed and dulled with two small spots of fraying to the spine head and front joint. The first few pages with blotchy foxing, and some tanning to the page edges. However, the main body of text is in good order and the binding is secure. A rare H E Bates title to find signed.
