$42.00

Mary Ann Evans, better known by her pen name George Eliot, was one of the most popular authors of the Victoria era. Today she is primarily known for her novels Middlemarch and Romola, but during the 19th century, readers equally admired her many other works, including her poetry. A practitioner of literary realism, her writings are defined by their sense of place, their setting descriptions, and their keen psychological insights. The Mill on the Floss epitomizes these qualities. First published in 1860, it describes the lives of the Tullivers who grow up as miller’s children on the River Floss. The landscape and psychologies of the characters play out over decades, brilliantly rendering a drama of place, family, acceptance, and duty. It is one of Eliot’s best novels. This illustrated edition also provides full-page paintings by Wray Manning, bringing the characters into vivid form.

This illustrated edition is in especially fine condition. In the original full cloth boards, fine with auburn stamped illustration to front board and gilt framed spine label. Text block fine. Manning’s illustrations superb. With the publisher’s original Sandglass pamphlet laid in. In the original slipcase, very nearly fine with only bumps to spine.

A fine illustrated edition of Mill on the Floss.
