1 Perry, Clay and Gore, Ann and Fleming, Laurence Old English Villages
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1986 0297789414 / 9780297789413 First Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A rectangular format volume of 160 pages. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs. The village has always been the centre of English country life. Clustered round a church, a pond or a green; spread round a common or along the banks of a river; huddled at the gate of a castle or manor house, there is an underlying unity that is given by the use of local materials. So we find whole villages made of one glowing stone, roofed in another; villages of half-timber and wattle and painted plaster; villages of wood, of flint, of pebbles, with roofs of thatch, tiles, or slate, or stone. The author has concentrated on finding the, as yet unspoilt villages that, gloriously preserved, still embody the whole idea of traditional English country life.
