red titles spine & front; illust. by b/w. frontis. photo. & 11 further b/w. photo's.; "the reader will do well to remember that I came to this country a bit homesick for my own land and her ways. The England I saw then was not the country which I now know, but the land as seen by an alien or a tourist. But this country has a way of slowly growing on one, and I soon found a whole new world of places to see and interests to explore. My most delightful moments came not in the glitter and dazzle of exciting London, the quaint charm of Ellzabethean Stratford, nor the lovely panorama of the Cotswold countryside. But to me the most delightful memories are of those little moments of exquisite pleasure in the recesses of the countryside; looking over the valleys of the 'Constable country' from the Polstead Church, tea by a blazing fire at Lavenham's Swan Inn, or walking through the fields in Depden. That is the England that I really love; the country we discovered when we left the road of the tourist and saw the real heart of England."; 128 pages. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
