HOLDEN, EDITH. 1871-1920.
The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady, and the Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. London: Webb & Bower, 1977/1989.
2 volumes. Illustrated after Holden's watercolor illustrations. Full green morocco by Zaehnsdorf, gilt-ruled covers, gilt decorated spine, gilt-decorated dentelles, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Matching green morocco and marbled paper slipcase.

LIMITED EDITION, number 1 of 15. Signed by Holden's great niece, Rowena Scott, on the limitation page. Facsimiles of two manuscript diaries from 1906, reproducing the hand-written text and watercolor illustrations from the originals. Holden, a relatively obscure illustrator of children's books, drowned accidentally in the Thames in 1920. The posthumous publication of her notebooks in 1977 and 1989 made her famous, and The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady was adapted into a biographical television series in the U.K.
