Very scarce with the wrapper
Heath, Ambrose & Ravilious, Eric (Illus.) ~ The Country Life Cookery Book with a few hints and reminders about the kitchen garden.
Country Life, London : 1937
The First UK printing published by The Country Life, London in 1937. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. A hint of pushing at the spine ends and a tiny rub to the rear spine fold. Apart from a little toning to the text-block and the extreme page edges, the book is free from inscriptions and is in exceptional condition for its age. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. A hint of fading and toning too the spine but far less than usually encountered. A 4 cm closed tear to the lower front spine fold. A few small nicks and light age related markings. The wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. 12 striking B/W wood-engravings, one for each month, and a title-page vignette, by Eric Ravilious. One of the vignettes is repeated on the front cover of the wrapper. A very sharp copy of an increasingly elusive title.
CONDITION: Near Fine
JACKET: Very Good++
