No nature lover's home should be without a copy of this most gorgeous book. Written and illustrated by the hugely talented Edith Holden in 1906, this copy is from the 6th impression, dated 1978. The pages are packed with beautifully observed drawings and notes on nature and wildlife throughout the year. This copy is in fair condition for its age, with some slight foxing along the top edge. Please note that the pages in these books appear aged as they are a reproduction of the 1906 original. For more information and photogrpahs, 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.

    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.
