First published in 1883, "Nature Near London" presents an authentic illustration of the idyllic countryside to be found near London, England. This volume constitutes a must-read for all lovers of nature writing, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of vintage literature. John Richard Jefferies (1848 - 1887) was an English nature writer. He is famous for his exceptional depictions of English country life in his natural history books, essays, and novels. Most of his major works were inspired by his early life spent on a small farm in Wiltshire, England. Other notable works by this author include: "Bevis" (1882), a classic children's novel, and "After London" (1885), an fantastic example of classic nature writing. Contents include: "Woodlands", "Footpaths", "Flocks Of Birds", "Nightingale Road", "A Brook", "A London Trout", "A Barn", "Wheatfields", "The Crows", "Heathlands", "The River", "Nutty Autumn", "Round A London Copse", "Magpie Fields", "Herbs", "Trees About Town", "To Brighton", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
