Chalk Flowers

Scan1

Another King Penguin from the collection of Evelyn Hallewell. This one’s a beauty but sadly missing a few pages from the middle. The illustrations are by Irene Hawkins but Rampion, Scabious, Rock Rose and Pasque Flower have disappeared. It was published in 1947 and, according to the label in the back, it was purchased from Binns Ltd. (Book Shop), Princes Street, Edinburgh 2.

    I love these books. I have just found “Life in an English Village” among my late mother’s books. Illustrated with 16 lithos by Edward Bawden. It was a Christmas present from my father in 1952.
