Mitford, Mary Russell: Our Village, v.1, 13 Feb 2008.

A series of villages sketches, first published in the Lady's Magazine, 1824–1832.Mary Mitford eventually published five volumes of ‘Our Village’. This version comes from PG and is less complete than my Everyman’s Library edition, but I couldn’t find a better version. It does have a long introduction by Anne Thackeray Ritchie with a lot of biographical information.
I have restored the original dedication and have left Miss Mitford’s occasionally idiosyncratic spelling untouched.

From Wikipedia:
Mary Russell Mitford (16 December 1787 - 10 January 1855), was an English novelist and dramatist.
The only daughter of Dr George Mitford, or Midford, she was born at Alresford, Hampshire. Her place in English literature is as the author of Our Village. This series of sketches of village scenes and vividly drawn characters was based upon life in Three Mile Cross, a hamlet in the parish of Shinfield, near Reading in Berkshire, where she lived. Her father spent his wife's fortune in a few years. Then he spent the greater part of £20,000, which in 1797 his daughter, then aged ten, drew as a prize in a lottery. The family lived in large properties in Reading and then Grazeley (in Sulhamstead Abbots parish), but, when the money was all gone, they lived on a small remnant of the doctor's lost fortune and the proceeds of his daughter's literary career.
