The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady
A charming addition to Rizzoli's carefully curated list of bringing back into print vintage classics, this beautifully packaged facsimile of Lady Edith Holden's original diary is filled with a naturalist's masterful paintings and delightful observations chronicling the English countryside throughout 1906.
As one of the few true artifacts of the time in print, the first-hand handwritten thoughts and paintings contained in The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady transport readers to a more refined, romantic, and simpler time.
Capitalizing on the Downton Abbey-inspired appetite for Edwardian era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction is more than homage, it brings readers back to a time in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. In today's troubling times, this souvenir of a bygone era serves not only as a calming touchstone, but a reminder that as long as we choose to see it, we are still surrounded by beauty and grace.
Presented to retain the charm and beauty of the original, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady makes a lovely addition to any estate's library or side table.
