Item Description: New York Harper and Brothers [1880], 1880. First edition, a very early printing (with the 11-word dedication). 8vo, dark blue cloth gilt lettered on the spine, decorated with a bright star and lettered in gilt and red on the upper cover. vii, 560, 12pp. ads. A very bright and clean copy, near to fine but for some minor evidence of shelving or age at the tips and extremities, former owner’s neat inscription at the top of the title-page. A classic and timeless work. "Lew Wallace said that he wrote Ben-Hur as a way to sort out his own beliefs about God and Christ. In doing so he inspired many readers by combining romanticism and spiritual piety common in sentimental novels of the 19th century with the action and adventure found in the more popular stories of the day. It prompted many clergy to reverse their church's long-held opposition to novels and actually encourage their congregations to read Ben-Hur, as a result helping it to become one of the best selling novels of its time."
