Copy 142 of 380 copies signed by Aldin, and with an original sketch of dog by Aldin beneath limitation. 4to. 109 pp. Twelve mounted color plates and numerous tinted text drawings by Aldin, who also wrote the bantering -styled text which takes us through six old English manor houses, discussing their history, their charm, their quirks, their legacy, their inhabitants. The text perfectly mirrors and augments the illustrations tinged with a wistful nostalgic charm and perhaps a elusive gauzy quality. Covers are soiled. Some light fox marks here and there but generally the pages are clean and fresh.
