What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Leather Binding, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Slipcase

As the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932 John Galsworthy was incredibly popular in his era and widely known for 'The Forsyte Saga', his trilogy about the eponymous upper-middle-class English family. This work, like much many of his others, are greatly concerned with issues of social class, depicting upper-middle classes in a largely sympathetic manner but often highlighting their insular, snobbish, and acquisitive attitudes and their suffocating moral codes. Indeed, Galsworthy is often considered as one of the first writers of the Edwardian era to overtly challenge these moral codes and ideals of society depicted in the preceding literature of Victorian England. This edition of 'Flowering Wilderness' was limited to four hundred copies for sale in Great Britain and Ireland. This copy is No. 163. Complete with original green card slipcase.

Condition

In the publisher's original quarter vellum binding with green cloth over boards, and the original slipcase. Externally very smart, with minor shelfwear to extremities and head and tail of spine. The odd faint mark to boards and spine. Internally firmly bound. Pages very bright and clean, and largely uncut throughout. Signed and numbered in ink by the author to the limited edition colophon page. Slipcase generally smart, with slight bumping to extremities, fading and marking.
