Reader's noteA wonderful copy of The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith. Goldsmith’s incredibly successful novel was one of the most widely read novels of the Victorian age, and has been referenced in the works of George Eliot, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Mary Shelley as well as many more. In this story, the benevolent vicar, Dr. Charles Primrose, leads a virtuous life. However, things start to turn for the worse for the Primrose family, with deception, bankruptcy and even an abduction affecting their once peaceful existence. However with faith and goodwill, the vicar is sure to pull through. A straightforward sentimental story? Or a genius satire on moralising tales of the day? Decide for yourself with this beautifully decorative red, blue and gold book with delightful colour photographs for illustration.
