'A Country Diary'

The file comprises newspaper cuttings of 'A Country Diary' articles from The Guardian, 1957-1991, pasted onto index cards. The articles each have a descriptive title, which would seem to indicate that they were intended for the book A Welsh Country Diary, which was published in 1993.

A Year in the Country

The file consists of a letter from the editor, Jon Gower, 1997, inviting Condry to contribute to an anthology of diaries covering all the months of the year, with a handwritten word count, typed draft of February's entry, list of topics and index cards.

'Early Essays'

The file consists of items grouped by the author under the title `Early Essays', which do not appear to be specifically connected with the other books listed in this series and which include: handwritten observations on birds in remote areas of Powys, 1946; an amended typescript of an essay entitled 'Birdwatching in Central Wales' [c.1948]; four small bundles, comprising a season by season description of birds, animals and plants, starting in spring 1949, partly in diary form, combined with more detailed notes on individual species, sources, bibliography and author's projects, which appear to have been intended for a book entitled A Birdwatcher's Year in Wales; loose notes with headings March to July and September [1962 or later], which include remarks on the seasons, wildlife observations, outlines for chapters and illustrations; an amended typescript of the first two chapters of an intended book, Swallow Days, with a speculative letter to a publisher, 1962; a manuscript essay on the short-eared owl by Condry's friend, Ray Perry; and a letter from Irene (Benjamin) Vaughan, 1961, on daffodil species.
