One of my favourites, this book contains the absolutely beautiful wood engravings of the incredibly talented Agnes Miller Parker. Originally published in 1937, this is the second impression of the 1979  reissue. In excellent condition inside, the dust jacket is a little tatty but is intact. 151 pages, hardback with 83 illustrations. Increasingly hard to come by as people dismantle them for the illustrations. For more information or photographs, please get in touch.

    The Bladnoch shop is currently closed.

    Online orders are being fulfilled as normal, but please allow extra time for posting as I am making less frequent trips to the Post Office.

    If your order is urgent, please get in touch.


    The Bladnoch shop has on-street parking outside. Accessed from the pavement, there is a small step of 3cm and then the threshold of 2cm height.

    The door width is 71cm.

    The shop is on one level, with shelves at various heights - staff will be very happy to assist in passing customers any items they wish to handle.

    Although the shop is small, there is room to manoeuvre a wheelchair inside.

    If you wish to plan your visit in advance and need more information, please contact Rosie at
