Middlemarch

A Study of Provincial Life

ELIOT, George

ELIOT, George Middlemarch A Study of Provincial Life

Blackwood, 1871.

First edition in book form. 8vo. Four volumes, bound by Birdsall in contemporary half calf over marbled boards, lettered in gilt and decorated with gilt banding and tooling to the spine. All edges stained red. A very good set with triffling wear to the spine and corners. Internally clean.

Eliot's greatest novel written at the height of her artistic maturity. V.S. Pritchett in his introduction to a later edition of the novel, opines,
"No Victorian novel approaches Middlemarch in its width of reference, its intellectual power, or the imperturbable spaciousness of its narrative.... No writer has ever represented the ambiguities of moral choice so fully."

PROVENANCE: Bookplates of Millicent Erskine-Wemyss (1831-1895)
