About this Item

In the original 8 parts. First Edition. Parrish pp 37-38; Muir pp 10-12. The author's last novel, latent with a theme of Zionism and anticipating the state of Israel. Filmed three times, once as a silent film and twice for television. 8vo, original printed wrappers, enclosed in slipcase box. The eight individual parts had been rebound in the 1920's preserving all ads, half-titles and announcement slips; the eight parts have been restored to their original separate volumes and rebacked in matching paper. The erratum for the second part, appears in part three, and the neat initials, (H.D.?) are written at the top of each wrapper, but this a fine copy and is considered very rare in parts. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PARTS. George Eliot, born Mary Ann Evans, received great acclaim for this and other novels, including ADAM BEDE, THE MILL ON THE FLOSS, SILAS MARNER, FELIX HOLT, and MIDDLEMARCH. DANIEL DERONDA, her last novel, has been praised for its excellent satire and characterization. Very scarce according to Sadleir, as both this and MIDDLEMARCH came out in fat five shilling parts which were widely circulated and very few sets have survived. With a mixture of social satire and moral searching, it contains a sympathetic rendering of Jewish proto-Zionist and Kabbalistic ideas. These renderings served to make it a controversial, and final, statement of one of the greatest of Victorian novelists. Bookseller Inventory # 27693
