Hardback.  First edition.  Illustrated with etchings and pen drawings by Robin Tanner.  ‘We present, in A Wiltshire Village, a book of the same fibre and beauty as Clare Leighton’s The Farmer’s Year, with which a few years back we marked our entry into this field of publishing.  The exquisite fineness of the sixty pen drawings is as masterly, in its own and different way, as the boldness of Clare Leighton’s woodcut effects.  And, like Clare Leighton, the authors have a feeling for English prose, and a feeling for the things that are at the very heart of England.  Here is another aspect of the English scene –  the village, in which (for so many of us) our childhood has its roots.  The village of this book is a Wiltshire village, because both the authors come from families that have made their home in Wiltshire for many generations.’

Condition: covers a little yellowed and lightly edge-worn with some small tape repairs.  Previous owner’s bookplate to front endpaper, otherwise very good.
