Thomas Hardy
Thomas Hardy - The Trumpet Major - 1880 U.K. 3 vol 1st - Bayntun leather binding
Thomas Hardy - The Trumpet Major - 1880 UK first edition published by Smith, Elder, and Co First edition, in three volumes. The books are bound by Bayntun in full green morocco with red spine labels, raised bands, gilt decoration, gilt to all edges of the text blocks and marbled endpapers. The outer bindings are lightly rubbed with some signs of fragility at the front hinge of vol. 1 and more superficial wear to vols. 2 and 3. The text blocks all retain their half-titles, they are a little toned with some light marks. The books are contained within a rather tired green cloth slipcase. An unusual departure for Hardy, giving this novel a historical setting during the Napoleonic Wars, but the Wessex landscape is familiar, as is the main theme of the woman with three very different suitors.
