Fore edge uncut. Top edge gilt. Translated by John Oliver Hobbes with a critical introduction. Photogravure portrait of Sand and 3 coloured plates by Eugene Paul Avril tissue guarded. Appendix of portraits and notes by Octave Uzanne. xix + 426 pages. Uniform with A Library of French Masterpieces edited by Edmund Gosse. The novel is set before the French Revolution and depicts the coming of age of a nobleman, Bernard Mauprat, with the story narrated by the old Bernard in his country home many years later, as told to a nameless young male visitor. Bernard recounts how, raised by a violent gang of his feudal kinsmen after the death of his mother, he becomes a brutalized 'enfant sauvage.' When his cousin Edmée is held captive by Bernard's 'family', he helps her escape, but elicits a promise of marriage from her by threatening rape. Thus begins the long courtship of Bernard and Edmée. The novel ends with a trial similar to the one in Stendhal's The Red and the Black. **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.84 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE EXTRA SHIPPING COST ****
