The Mill on the Floss
Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, and pseudonym for Mary Ann Evans,George Eliot. First edition. Sadleir 816a; Wolff 2060. With one page of the original publishers' catalogue to the rear of volume three, and two volumes featuring their original half titles. Like other novels by George Elliot, The Mill on the Floss articulates the tension between circumstances and the spiritual energies of individual characters struggling against those circumstances. The two main themes of the novel, growing up and falling in love, lend themselves to amusement, but it is stunted growth and frustrated love that are emphasised. Commentators have often focused on the constant rejection of Maggie's talents and mannerisms by her family and society. Even the cultural norms of her community deny her intellectual and spiritual growth, according to Elizabeth Ermarth, They are norms according to which she is an inferior, dependent creature who will never go far in anything, and which consequently are a denial of her full humanity. 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. Light damp staining to the boards, and sunning to the spines, as well asone front board. Three joints are starting, and all hinges are tender.
