1908 1st ed Book on English Villages ill Sydney Jones 1908 1st ed Book on English Villages ill Sydney Jones



This listing is a Very Good 1908 first edition copy of Ditchfield's Charm of the English Village, which with his languid prose and the charming line drawings of Sydney Jones lives up to its title.One would hope that there are still many villages in England that present the rural and picturesque aspect that this book puts before us. It would be interesting to visit these villages today and see what they look like. <p>THE CHARM OF THE ENGLISH VILLAGE by P. H. Ditchfield & Illustrated by Sydney R.
