Felix Holt: The Radical
nbsp;Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons 1866 - The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, Mary Anne, under her famous pseudonym George Eliot. First edition. Inthe Carter C variant binding often considered the rarest of the bindings. Featuring the original publishers catalogue to the rear of volume three. All volumes have their original half titles. Published around the time of the Second Reform Act, Felix Holt, the Radical takes a nostalgic look at events during the time of the First Reform Act in 1832. Little attention is paid to the preceding social or political mechanisms underlying the Reform. More relevant to the story is the social change seen in rural towns across England resulting from political change. Treby Magna, previously isolated from notions of national politics and national religion, becomes exposed to the riotous upheaval seen in other English towns when it is made a polling station. In January 1868, Eliot penned an article entitled Address to Working Men, by Felix Holt. This came on the heels of the Second Reform Act of 1867 which expanded the right to vote beyond the landed classes and was written in the character of, and signed by, Felix Holt. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original publishers' cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed, with wear and loss to the extremities and spines. Chipping to the head and tail of spines, and backstrip to volume tree is lifting. One joint is strained, and four hinges are slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound, with instances of spotting, and handling marks. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
