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.

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.

4 6986 DELAFIELD] POWELL, Violet Life of a Provincial Lady; a Study of E.M. Delafield and her Works
Hardcover; Ex-Library Heinemann: London; 1988; First British Edition 190 pages B&W Photographs: Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
Ex-library book with usual stamps and markings.Spine ends and corners bumped, page edges pale brown (seen before in this edition, a few page corners creased; interior pages clean, no binding problems. Unclipped dust wrapper with no library markings, is wrinkled and edgeworn.; In this rather scarce study of E. M. Delafield and her works, the reader discovers how the talented novelist's own life provided the fodder for the enchanting Provincial Lady series and many other highly successful volumes. (Included in this biography is Delafield's account of her time in a Belgian convent.) Like the Provincial Lady, she lived in a Devonshire village and was married with two children. 'Delafield's domineering mother was the novelist Mrs. Henry de la Pasture and her father was an Anglo-French Count. The author of this biography, Lady Violet Powell, superbly analyzes the most important Delafield novels, published over half a century ago.'; Recommended by Provincial Lady addict Holly H.of the ATS, AT, and DES email discussion groups.
