When Lady Hope wasn’t (allegedly) convincing Charles Darwin that publishing his theories of evolution was a bad idea, she was documenting England. In 1909, she published English Homes and Villages: Kent and Sussex, a lovely old-fashioned book with lots of illustrations–black-and-white and water-colour–and photographs.
Our copy is not in the best condition, but it’s still in one piece. The spine is starting to separate from the cover along one edge, but a novice bookbinder would have no problem repairing it. There’s a little water damage on the front cover, and the edges are a bit worn.
To compensate for the minor damage, it also has (don’t you love the bonuses found inside second-hand books?) four pressed pansies inside the front cover.
