1 Eliot, George Felix Holt: The Radical
London William Blackwood and Sons 1866 First Edition Half-Leather Very Good+ No Jacket 
George Eliot was one of our finest 19th century novelists. She was also responsible for Silas Marner as well as The Mill on the Floss. The is a gorgeous three volume set of the First edition of Felix Holt: The Radical. The volumes are in half-leather over marbled boards and the endpapers are marbled as well. The spines are finely and intricately decorated in gilt and all of the edges are marbled. The textblocks are absolutely clean with no foxing and the book is printed on woven paper. There is a very small bit of soiling to the half-title and the verso of the ffep in volume two but it does not detract at all. The books are individually paginated. The leather presentation case was built by my binder and is of the highest quality leather. Each volume resides in its own mylar wrapper within the slipcase. This is a stunning set. The novel's plot revolves around a political election in a rural area of England at the time of the reform bill of 1832. This novel provides a vivid picture of the society of the times. The writing, as with all of George Eliot's major works,is exquisite. All classes of society are included in a thorough portrait of English rural life. Ther novel hinges on character and the characters are very skillfully presented. It also contains such Dickensian devices as an unknown ancestry and a strange will. The romantic hero and heroine spiritually transcend the limitations of the sympathetically depicted but earthbound characters around them. This is an important work of nineteenth century literature and a wonderful novel as well. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
