THE FARMER'S YEAR. A calendar of English husbandry.

Collins. London. 1934.

Second impression, January 1934. The same size and format as the November 1933 first edition. Oblong folio. (11.2 X 14.3 inches). 54 pp. Illustrated with fine wood engravings; 12 full page plates, 12 initial letters and 6 tail pieces by Leighton. Publishers green cloth binding with gilt lettering to the front board and spine. A gilt illustration of a farmer with his scythe on the front board. Decorative repeated wood cut design of a rural scene on the endpapers, printed in green. Neat short gift inscription, dated 1935, to the front blank endpaper. A very near fine and clean copy of the book in a very good original dustwrapper which reproduces the endpapers design. Price of 10/6 still present on the front inner flap. A few small closed tears, without loss, some minor spotting and a small area of loss to the very top of the spine, but away from the lettering, otherwise a very attractive and bright example of this scarce wrapper. One of the most beautiful books of the inter-war years.
