Printing Details

First edition, hardback (defective). 19.5 × 12cm, 244pp.

George Meredith's second novel, a fantasy published after The Shaving of Shagpat. It is a comic and grotesque reworking of medieval legend. The book wasn't a success for Meredith and is considered a scarce title of Victorian fiction.

Condition

The binding is in poor condition, with both front and rear boards detached. The leather to the spine has almost totally disintegrated. This copy is ex-library and has a rather lovely label to the front board (Harvey's Library of Sidmouth) with labels to the front pastedown as well. The title page is heavily foxed, the rest of the text with much lesser foxing and the main text block is still bound together well.
