Reader's note

A stunning red and gold decorative edition of Thomas Hardy's A Laodicean. This is a vintage edition from 1926. A young architect, George Somerset, is employed by Paula Power, heir to her railroad tycoon father’s fortune, to undertake some restoration work. Power is a modern woman in many ways: she refuses to be baptised in the local church (she is thus the ‘Laodicean’ of the novel’s title: the Laodiceans were a Biblical people who were lukewarm in their faith), has modernised the castle by having telegraph wires and machines installed, and she is possibly more than just good friends with her best friend, Charlotte. Yet at the same time, Paula has a romantic attachment to the medieval past, which is embodied by the building, de Stancy castle, which she has inherited from her father. Read on in this gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
