Hardcover, quarter white cloth lettered in copper over black boards, in publisher’s dust-jacket. 294 pages. Edited with an introduction by David Skilton. A volume in the World’s Classics edition of The Barsetshire Novels, published by Oxford University Press (1989). The first of six Barsetshire titles, this tale of greed, reforming zeal, love and the local parsonage rises to the heights of other great Victorian fiction which used contemporary news stories to fashion a modern parable about human foibles and morality. No previous ownership marks. A clean, square, fresh and unmarked copy, pristine and like new. Fine in a fine dust-jacket.
