A Week's Holiday in the Forest of Dean
A replica of the first edition from 1881
For visitors in the 1880s, A Week’s Holiday in the Forest of Dean was specifically designed to assist their exploration and enjoyment of the district. The pocket sized first edition was published in two formats; as a paperback with brightly coloured covers, and as a hard bound book. That it was soon reprinted points to an initial success and one that continued through several later editions up to the 1960s.
