Light spine and cover creases, some edgewear and rubbing. ; This is the third book about Angela Thirkell by the author, a past president of the Angela Thirkell Society, North American branch. This "is a close examination of each of the Barsetshire novels for elements of beauty (or lack thereof), supplemented by notation of the increasing presence of nostalgia in the oeuvre, and the link between the two. Aesthetics here refers to Thirkell's appreciation of beauty, especially in nature and architecture, rather than to the strict philosophical school of thought." ; Fun 'advance praise' on back cover featuring various Barsetshire notables. Images are actual copy on offer.
