A Romany and Raq

£29.99

Product description

Another collection of memoirs from George Bramwell Evens, the Romany of the BBC’s Out with Romany, always most at home in the outdoors, in his little tent or his horse-drawn caravan.
Accompanying Romany and Raq on their rambles, we share the sights, smells and noises of the country. We learn of the mysteries of squirrels – God’s unpaid gardeners, unknowing sowers of beauty – and of the spider’s family problems, sending off her babies like parachutists into the big wide world.
Romany also introduces us to old friends: Alan and Joe, the farmers; Jerry, the poacher and Sally Stordy, only too pleased to stop her housework to give Romany and Raq a cup of tea and a slice of her blackberry-and-apple plate-cake.
Dust jacket is somewhat careworn: 4 cm of the lower spine is missing, there are several tears and creases, also chipped areas along all the edges. This 5th edition is bound in dark green with black lettering and is slightly bumped on edges and corners, otherwise in very good condition. The text block edges are foxed and soiled the block is tight, all text is clear, there are many small b/w line drawings throughout, plus several b/w photographs.
Sunday School Prize plate on front free end paper dated 1936.
