The Hand of Ethelberta. A Comedy in Chapters. In Two Volumes.
London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1876 - 2 volumes, octavo. Near contemporary blue half morocco by Root & Son, spines gilt in compartments, blue cloth sides, marbled endpapers, ruling to boards and top edges gilt. Bookplate of E. Hubert Litchfield to each volume. Endpapers tanned from turn-ins, contents toned with occasional light foxing. An excellent set. Frontispieces and 9 black and white drawings by George Du Maurier. First edition. The Hand of Ethelberta was originally published as a serial in the Cornhill Magazine from July 1875 to May 1876, and in the New York Times between 20 June 1875 and 9 April 1876. Hardy began writing Ethelberta after Leslie Stephen, the editor of Cornhill, asked for another story following the success of Far from the Maddening Crowd, which Cornhill had published as a serial between January and December 1874. Each instalment of the serial was accompanied by an illustration and a vignette initial by George Du Maurier, with the illustrations being used again when the story was published in book form. Purdy, pp. 20-21 [Attributes: First Edition]
