Jude the Obscure - ,

Osgood, McIlvaine & Co,. 1896.

First edition, first state with partially blank pages numbered on signatures A-H. Original green cloth with gilt vignettes and titles. Top edge gilt. Etched frontis and map of Wessex at the rear. A very good copy indeed. A very clean, bright copy of the author's last novel.

Hardy's final novel follows 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.'
