The Woman in White

COLLINS, Wilkie

COLLINS, Wilkie The Woman in White

Sampson Low, 1860.

First English edition. Three volumes. Finely bound by Bayntun Riviere in mid twentieth century full scarlet calf, with raised bands, contrasting morocco title labels and decoration to the spines. Double ruled border to the covers, with decorated edges and turn ins. All edges gilt. Original cloth covers bound in at the rear. A very good copy indeed with some wear to the front joint of each volume.

The Woman in White is the novel for which Collins is best known. It is also one of the earliest and most influential examples of modern detective fiction, with the sleuth, Walter Hartright, employing many of the techniques used by Sherlock Holmes and subsequent fictional detectives.
