The English Cottage
Harry Batsford and Charles Fry
B. T. Batsford Ltd, 2nd edition 1944
Interesting study, well illustrated throughout. Lovely dustwrapper by Brian Cook.
Hardback in dustwrapper. pp viii, 117, including b/w line drawings plus b/w plates. 8.75 x 5.75 inches approx. (220mm x 145mm).
Dustwrapper a little rubbed and worn to extremities; a touch dusty/grubby in places, some sunning; spine sunned and darkened. Cloth a touch dusty but generally clean and bright; boards lightly knocked to corners. Endpapers foxed/spotted, some bubbling to front paste-down, owner inscription in ink to front free endpaper; foxing to preliminaries and final pages but generally clean throughout; edges of page-block spotted, especially dusty/spotted to top edge.
Nonetheless, remaining a nice, clean copy – attractive.
