This is the cover of the 1934 book, which was printed in royal octavo - approximately 6 ¼ x 9 7/8" or 160 mm x 250 mm.

The price of three shillings and sixpence (17.5p) is the equivalent of about £11 at today’s prices.

The coat of arms  (enlarged, right) which appears on the cover  is the bookplate of Anthony Dickins, born at Cherington in 1734; the publication of Margaret Dickins' book therefore marked the bicentenary of her ancestor's birth.

When the author gave her cousin Harriet Eleanora (Nora) Dickins of Cherington a copy of her work, the two ladies inscribed their names in the book.
