True first edition, first impression, 1933, of Clare Leighton's classic book, arguably her best work. Eric Gill commented: "The size of these pictures, the boldness of their design and the clean dexterity of their engraving remove them entirely from the world of petty sentiment. Many people have done pretty little views of country life ... But no one in our time has succeeded better in presenting the noble massiveness and breadth of life on the earth on a scale so grand."

Bound in full green morocco leather with a gold block to the front board taken from the original cloth binding. With 12 full page black & white wood engravings echoing the work across the seasons, plus 7 vignettes and chapter heading letter blocks, plus original Leighton design endpapers. No foxing.
