All the Beasts of the Field - Sylvia Fenton

George Allen & Unwin, 1984, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Bruised at head of spine with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. A very nice copy.

From the cover: “For thirty years, Sylvia Fenton nurtured a dream — a dream of leaving London, of buying a cottage in the country where she could indulge her passion for the countryside and provide a secure home for animals which needed help and protection. The animals are the real stars of the book, but Sylvia Fenton also writes of her discovery that country life is not all roses round the door — more like thistles round your ankles, nettles round your knees and mud up to your midriff.”
