“Sylvia Townsend Warner was already an established novelist and poet when she agreed to write Somerset in 1949. The result is a witty and erudite companion; a sensualist’s book, written in a style which conveys the intimate quality of conversation.With Warner as a guide the reader is taken on a journey through the county’s most beautiful scenery — One cannot travel through Somerset without feeling that one is being handed on from one set of hills to another. Exmoor, Quantocks, Poldens or Mendips, they each have their own distinct character enriched by the colour and texture of stone which has shaped their architectural heritage.”

This is the 2007 edition of Warner’s classic work. Illustrated with photographs by Edwin Smith, Patrick Sutherland, Peter Tolhurst  and Chris Willloughby.  From the library of Ronald Blythe and with his neat ownership signature to front endpaper.  Condition: very good.
