Upper and lower boards and inner dentelles ruled and decorated in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Two silk ribbon page markers. All edges gilt. The original cloth bound in at the rear. With 100 black and white illustrations throughout by Hugh Thomson. A lovely very near fine copy, the binding square and firm and the gilt bright, the spine just a touch faded. The contents, with a gift inscription to the front blank and some spotting to the prelims are otherwise clean and bright throughout.

A beautifully illustrated and bound edition of Mary Russell Mitford's record of country life, originally serialised in 'The Lady's Magazine' in the 1820s and 30s.
