"Dartmoor" One of the Beautiful England series. Described by Arthur L. Salmon. Pictures by E.W. Haslehust R.B. A (wonder if this means Royal British Academy?)Blackie & Son Limited, London and Glasgow. Printed in Great Britain. No date, quite old I would think, perhaps 1920s or 30s. 12 sweet and charming watercolor color plates.
From a google for Haslehust I find:
"Born at Walthamstow in Essex, the eldest son of William Henry Haslehust, of Lee, Kent. Studied at the Slade School. A keen gardener, nature lover with an interest in scientific instruments.
These fascinating colour prints provide a fascinating views of the countryside, villages and towns before the First World War. Taken from paintings executed between 1910 and 1915. Published from about 1911 to 1940"
