All my friends and relatives know that I collect English books. During the time I was studying English I got many beautiful books. And one day I got "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" by Edith Blackwell Holden, in English and not long after this also the Dutch translation of this book.
The book consists of a collection of poetry and drawings of plants, insects and birds.
"Edith Blackwell Holden (1871–1920) was a British artist and part-time art teacher, known in her time as an illustrator of children's books.. Much influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, she specialized in painting animals and plants. Holden was made famous by the posthumous publication, in 1977, of her Nature Notes for 1906 under the title The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. She was living in Gowan Bank, Kineton Green Road, Olton, Solihull in 1905-6 when she recorded the notes. The collection of seasonal observations, poetry, and pictures of birds, plants, and insects —which was never even considered for publication when it was composed—had the nostalgic charm of a vanished world seven decades later. It became a world-wide best seller."
