Printing Details

First thus. Hardback in slipcase, bound in quarter cloth with gilt titling to spine and paper covered boards. 26 × 16.5cm, vii + 348pp.

Flaubert's debut novel, published in 1856. The eponymous character lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. The novel caused a scandal when it was published and public prosecutors attacked the novel for obscenity. Flaubert was acquitted and the novel went on to be a bestseller.

Condition

The book is in very good condition, with a very slight wrinkle to the top edge of the first few pages. The slipcase is in poor condition and is coming apart but is still protecting the book.
