JUDE IN A DUSTWRAPPER

HARDY, Thomas Jude the Obscure

Osgood,McIlvaine & Co., 1896.

First edition, early state with partially blank pages numbered on signatures A and E-H. Original green cloth with gilt vignettes and titles in rare grey printed dustwrapper. A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, which has some chipping, about 1cm deep, to the head of the spine and the corner of the rear panel. Wear to the corners, closed tears to the joints, the whole sympathetically backed in similar paper.

Hardy's final novel. Decidedly uncommon in its original dustwrapper.
Themes of education, marriage and the role of women. Novelist H.G. Wells in an unsigned piece for the Saturday Review eulogised 'There is no other novelist alive with the breadth of sympathy, the knowledge or the power for the creation of Jude.'

Purdy p 87; Sadleir 1108 (no dustwrapper)
