Product Description:

A creative field journal of an adventurous nature enthusiast named Edith Holden, this diary contains many facts, entries, and paintings of her local wildlife and foliage. The diary is laid out by months, giving facts, quotes, poems, and meanings about each month. Following the month heading information are pages of personal nature experience entries. Throughout the book, one page has writing, while the adjacent page has a picture or painting of a plant or animal— labeled with both the common and scientific name of each featured life form. The back of the book features an index of wildflowers and birds she had witnessed in her English Countryside of Olton, Warwickshire. This nature diary is so creative and inspiring, and will leave the reader feeling enthused and refreshed to see the wonder in creation. 186 pgs, hc.

Publisher Description:

This beautifully packaged facsimile of 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 records of the time in print, the 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 current Downton Abbey–inspired appetite for Edwardian-era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction brings readers back to a time in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. 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 volume filled with Holden’s hand-drawn illustrations of the English countryside’s flora and fauna through the changing seasons of the year, as well as handwritten notes, observations, and quotations.

high quality printing
This is for the BOOK, not the puzzle as the listing currently describes (I'm not sure why). This is a lovely hardcover with a cloth binding. The illustrations are printed nicely, and the book has such pretty drawings, as well as interesting bits of information about each month.
