Reader's note

Looking for beautiful vintage books to stand out on your bookshelf? This decoratively covered edition of John Halifax, Gentleman by Mrs. Craik would be a charming addition to any home library. The story tells of the poor honest orphan John, who finds employment with the tanner Abel Fletcher and is befriended by Abel's weakling son Phineas, improves his position, and marries the book's heroine, Ursula March. John's status as 'gentleman' is earned not by birth and wealth but by his own integrity and worth.

“It was the first time in my life I ever knew the meaning of that rare thing, tenderness. A quality different from kindliness, affectionateness, or benevolence; a quality which can exist only in strong, deep, and undemonstrative natures, and therefore in its perfection is oftenest found in men.”

This is a rare edition from the 1890s and with its floral design and gold-gilt page block, lettering and text block is sure to stand out on any book shelf. - not one to be missed! A gem among a bounty of out of print, rare and stunning vintage books on our second hand bookstore.
