Reader's note

This delightful edition of Thomas Hardy’s The Hand of Ethelberta would look great on any bookshelf. It was originally published in serial form for the Cornhill Magazine, and was for Hardy a departure from the pastoral fiction he was known for. It tells the story of Ethelberta, the widow of a rich young man who must find a way to provide for her family. Hardy writes from the point of view of the servants hall, contrasting this satirically with the London society Ethelberta becomes a part of. The cover art on this edition is simple yet striking, with a deep green dust jacket featuring gilt lettering to the front and spine.
