Spine faintly creased, covers lightly creased and edgeworn. The dark green rear cover is speckled white (a publishing flaw?) making the white text a bit difficult to read. Pages pale yellow, edges a bit darker (as is common with Virago editions of this period) and very lightly soiled. A few interior page corners creased, but clean; none loose. ; An omnibus edition of four of the Provincial Lady Diaries originally written from 1930-1940. They are witty portraits of life in a Devonshire village, in London, in the US, and finally at the beginning of World War II.;

Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and AT email discussion list. "Diary of a Provincial Lady is my favorite book in all the world. This is the book I packed in my hospital bag when I was having a baby! It is absolutely enchanting...perfectly understated...quintessentially country English before the second world war.There is an emotional French governess, an arrogant titled neighbor, the silent husband, a procession of difficult servants, the talkative Vicar's wife, two not-quite-perfect but loveable children, and most of all, the Provincial Lady, who struggles through daily life with an overdrawn account and a much-needed sense of humor. Is there any better novel? 'Answer comes there none,' to quote the Provincial Lady." Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group, says "E M Delafield’s Provincial Lady is one of my favourite literary characters." Images are actual copy on offer.

Hardcover; Book Club Edition Pocket Books: New York; 1989; Book Club Edition 310 pages Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
The author's favourite book, this is a wonderful read involving time travel to 16th century England. The main character is a bit annoying for the first 15 pages, but keep reading, it's worth it!

A rather oddly dressed man (in armor? ) suddenly appears and the adventure begins. Highly recommended.; Spine ends bumped, bottom board edge has tiny worn spot revealing board, previous owner note Doubleday Book Club and price in ink on rear pastedown. A few pages of deckled fore-edge indented, interior pages clean and bright, no binding problems. Edgeworn dust wrapper faintly soiled on peach spine and rear panel with a short closed tear at front panel spine head.; Image is actual copy on offer.
