Hardy, Thomas
THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE [signed by Hardy]
London: Macmillan and Co., 1909. 32 pp ads dated "20.3.10". Original blue-grey cloth with front cover TH monogram in gilt. Later printing of the "Wessex Novels" edition, which had first appeared (with a new Preface by Hardy) in 1895; the original three-volume novel had been published in 1878. This copy is in very good condition (spine sunned and wkith a damp-mark toward the bottom, cello-tape stains on the endpapers). The half-title bears the distinctive signature of Thomas Hardy beneath the book's title; Hardy must have flipped the book shut after signing it (out of aggravation at being asked?), as some of his ink is offset onto the opposing leaf. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA] [Yarmouth, ME, U.S.A.]
