Reader's note

A beautiful pastel designed antique book on English household life filled with photos and illustrations throughout--a gem among a bounty of out of print rare books and stunning vintage books on our 2nd hand bookstore!

"This book, for the most, records some aspects of the life of English villages in the past. It relates to customs and manners of living that have almost ceased to be, and it treats of objects that were originated and made to serve the needs of people in bygone times. The men and women who fashioned the old household gods, of the kind here illustrated, represented the typical human contents of the countryside. Born and bred in villages and hamlets, along the cool, sequester'd vale of life they kept the noiseless tenor of the way.

Many years ago they passed away; but their memories are still kept green by their handiwork. They remain unforgotten by the thought they inspired and the ideas they propagated, which now link the past with the present."
