This is an auction for THE ILLUSTRATED CIDER WITH ROSIE by Laurie Lee.

From Wikipedia:

"CIDER WITH ROSIE is a 1959 book by Laurie Lee. It is an account of Lee's childhood in the village of Slad, Gloucestershire, England, in the period soon after the First World War. It chronicles the traditional village life which disappeared with the advent of new developments, such as the coming of the motor car, and also of the experience of childhood seen from many years later. CIDER WITH ROSIE was dramatized for television by the BBC in 1970 and again in 1998 by Carlton Television for ITV. Rather than follow strict chronological order Lee uses thematic chapters. First Light describes Laurie arriving with his mother and family at their cottage in Slad, Gloucestershire. The young children gorge themselves on the fruit bushes and bread as their harassed mother tries to get the cottage and their furniture into some kind of order. The house relies on a small wood-fire for the cooking and a hand pump in the scullery for its water. They are visited by a man in uniform who is sleeping out in the surrounding woods - he visits them in the mornings for food and to dry out his damp clothes. He is finally taken off by men in uniform as a deserter. The chapter ends with the villagers riotously celebrating the end of the Great War . . . "
