About this Item

Hardy was born on June 2, 1840, in a thatched cottage, and pronounced dead by the doctor in attendance but saved by the family nurse who said, "Stop a minute! He's alive enough, sure!" His birthplace stands in southern England, in a hamlet known as Higher Bockhampton, about 3 miles east of Dorchester, in Dorset, the center of the region about which Hardy wrote in all of his books. Natives of this quiet locality were of the sort that Thomas Gray described as 'rude forefathers of the hamlet', "Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife." from the introduction by Carl Weber along with Weber's intricate page notes. Navy blue binding, yellow lettering on spine, owner pencil jottings front endpaper. Bookseller Inventory # 053331
