The Works. [Including Far from the Madding Crowd; The Mayor of Casterbridge; Jude the Obscure; Tess of the D'Urbervilles; The Trumpet-Major; Two on a Tower; The Well-Beloved.]
London: Macmillan and Co, Limited, 1924–30 - 27 volumes, octavo. Original dark blue full calf, spines elaborately gilt and with gilt titles direct, top edges gilt, triple rules to boards in blind, author's monogram to front boards in blind. Contemporary ownership signature to front free endpaper of a few volumes. Extremities lightly rubbed, occasional light scuff to boards, fore edges of text block a touch spotted, some prelims faintly toned. An excellent set. Sixteen volumes have a map of Wessex at the back. Rare complete set of the deluxe issue of the Macmillan Pocket Hardy. It is unusual to find sets of this collected edition which are not missing the last couple of volumes. The text of the pocket edition reproduces that of the Wessex Edition, which is considered as the definite and best edition by Richard Little Purdy and Hardy himself.
