Our Village: Sketches of Rural Character and Scenery. by Mary Russell Mitford

£3.99

Product description

Our Village is a collection of about 100 literary sketches of rural life written by Mary Russell Mitford (1787–1855), and originally published during the 1820s and 1830s. The series first appeared in The Lady's Magazine. The full title is: Our Village: Sketches of Rural Character and Scenery. The vivid series was based upon life in Three Mile Cross, a hamlet in the parish of Shinfield (south-east of Reading in Berkshire), where she lived. This edition is magnificently illustrated with hundreds of photographs, sketches and drawings. The book book perfectly captures a long vanished rural England. This delightful book is eminiscent of jane Austen, and a classic in its own right.

The book is used but is in very good condition.
