The Hand of Ethelberta. A Comedy in Chapters
London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1876., 1876. First Edition. 2 volumes; 8vo. The novel was originally written, in serial form, for the Cornhill magazine, which was edited by Leslie Stephen, a friend and mentor of Hardy's. Handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf during the author's lifetime in green half crushed morocco with gilt titles and gilt raised bands to spines, gilt rule to green cloth boards, top edges gilt, marbled end papers. With 11 illustrations. Minor sunning to spines; light specks of foxing to first and last couple of leaves. Bookplate to paste downs. A fine copy. The events of the story concern Ethelberta's career as a famous poetess and storyteller as she struggles to support her family and conceal her secret—that her father is a butler. Beautiful, clever, and rational, she easily attracts four very persistent suitors but is reluctant to give her much-coveted hand.
