A village in a valley by Beverley Nichols( Book )

11 editions published between 1934 and 1936 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third book in Nichols's Allways trilogy contains a new foreword by Bryan Connon, Beverley Nichols's biographer. Set in the English countryside, the hilarious book is as much about the author's love for plants as it is about the village in which he lived. The depictions of flowers and ornamentals - "A single one of those gloxinias would be an event in Allways ... I should give a party for it" - are both inspiring and unforgettable. This is the voice of one whose chief endowment is an appreciation for plants and the landscape, including a keen understanding of the importance gardens play in an increasingly modern world
A thatched roof by Beverley Nichols( Book )

8 editions published between 1933 and 2005 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beverley Nichols fans, armchair gardeners, and literature enthusiasts will delight in this reprint of the second book in his Allways trilogy, with facsimile reproductions of Rex Whistler's original graceful illustrations and a new foreword by Roy C. Dicks. Nichols's humorous ruminations on life in the countryside, as always, are refreshing. The typical Nichols gardening anecdotes and familiar characters are there, as well as the author's beloved dog, Whoops, an inveterate spy with a habit of leaping to conclusions
Gulliver's travels: an authoritative text, the correspondence of Swift, Pope's verses on Gulliver's travels [and] critical essays by Jonathan Swift( Book )

8 editions published between 1930 and 1984 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The voyages of an Englishman carry him to such strange places as Lilliput, where people are six inches tall; Brobdingnag, a land of giants; and a country ruled by horses. Shipwrecked castaway Lemuel Gulliver's encounters with strange creatures in strange lands give him new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift's fantastic and subversive book remains supremely relevant in our own age of distortion, hypocrisy, and irony. Illustrations
