Product description

THE TRUMPET MAJOR
Thomas Hardy
Published by The Folio Society, London (1993)

Item Description: The Folio Society, London, 1993. Fine Binding. Book Condition: Mint. Peter Reddick (illustrator). Reprint. THE TRUMPET MAJOR John Loveday A Soldier in the War with Buonaparte and Robert his Brother Thomas Hardy. Wood engravings by Peter Reddick. Introduction by Paul I. Webb. The Folio Society, London 1993 Reprint. 314pp Illustrated Hardback.
This copy is in very good condition uniformly bound in cloth covered boards featuring a blocked corn dolly design by the artist to the front board and bright gilt titling to a panel on the spine. Silk top and tail bands and coloured top page edges. The endpapers feature a map of Wessex and the fictional locations of Hardy’s stories. The text block is bright, tight and white and appears unread. This copy has no slipcase.
The Trumpet-Major is a novel by Thomas Hardy published in 1880. The heroine, Anne Garland, is pursued by three suitors: John Loveday, the trumpet major in a British regiment, honest and loyal; his brother Bob, a flighty sailor; and Festus Derriman, the cowardly nephew of the local squire. The setting is the Napoleonic wars, and it seems Miss Garland has a penchant for men in uniform. Of the two brothers, John fights with Wellington in the Peninsular War, and Bob serves with Nelson at Trafalgar. Unusually for a Hardy novel, most of the characters live happily ever after; however, the ending is debatably an ominous one.
