The Mill on the Floss (1980, Clarendon Edition)

£10.99

Product description

Published in 1980 by the Clarendon Press. The first volume in The Clarendon Edition of the Novels of George Eliot. A scholarly edition with Includes footnotes and references. Edited by Gordon S Haight.

The classic novel, The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), was first published in three volumes in 1860 by William Blackwood. The novel, set in the 1820s/30s, spans a period of 10 to 15 years and details the lives of Tom and Maggie Tulliver, siblings growing up at Dorlcote Mill on the River Floss at its junction with the more minor River Ripple near the village of St. Ogg's in Lincolnshire, England. Although both the river and the village are fictional, the novel includes autobiographical elements.

This Clarendon Edition restores the novel to its original manuscript with adjustments to the preferred OED spelling. It includes an introduction describing the composition, publication and sales of the first four editions of the novel which George Eliot was involved with herself. Revisions in the manuscript are traced through cancelled passages and changes in page and chapter numbers while appendices summarise the the geography of the story and its chronology.

Complete with dust jacket which has not been price-clipped, has some light fading to the spine. A clean and tidy volume with tight binding.
