Stendhal is the pseudonym of nineteenth century French author Marie-Henri Beyle. He was a monumental forerunner to character-driven, historical, and psychological novels. His work is considered far ahead of its time. The Romantic Period in which he lived often overlooked his more grounded fictions, but since the rise of Realism in the late-nineteenth century, writers and critics have returned to Stendhal with admiration. Of his list of works, The Red and the Black stands out for its narration, richness of character, and satiric depiction of French society. This illustrated edition, containing Rafaello Busoni’s spectacular work, is a fine representation of Stendhal’s genius. It is a superb volume, returning the work to modern attention.

This illustrated edition is in fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine with red stamping. Cloth spine very lightly faded. Text block fine. Dyed edges. Busoni’s illustrations superb. With the original Sandglass pamphlet. With the original slipcase, near fine with only minor fading and rubbing to edges.

A fine illustrated edition of Stendhal’s classic published by Heritage Press.
