一九七七年出版商首次出版了《The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady》，在當時引起一陣風潮，當時常有人用這本書當作禮物贈送給親友。本書有荷頓精美的畫作、隨筆和語錄，閱讀過程中，書中的喬治亞時代氛圍，似乎帶著讀者們跨越時空，回到十九世紀初的英國。
A charming addition to Rizzoli’s carefully curated program of bringing classic books back into print.
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, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady makes a lovely addition to any home’s library or side table.
