About this Item: Peacock/ Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The story revolves around young and amorous but capricious Bathsheba Everdene and her enviable problem of coping with her three suitors simultaneously. The first is shepherd Gabriel Oak, financially ruined by his sheepdog driving his flock over a cliff, now forced to work for Bathsheba on her farm. Second suitor is farmer Boldwood, to whom Bathsheba unwisely sends an anonymous valentine, which he takes so seriously as to fall in love with her. The third suitor is dashing Sergeant Troy. He loves Bathsheba`s maid Fanny Robin but fails to marry Fanny because she went to the wrong church for the ceremony. Far from the Madding Crowd is perhaps the best known and most humorous of Hardy`s novels. Even though the familiar themes of suffering and betrayal are evident, it is the product of Hardy`s intimate and first hand knowledge of the attitudes, habits, inconsistencies and idiosyncrasies of rural men and women. Far from the Madding Crowd, first published in 1874, was sold out in just over two months. Printed Pages: 374. Seller Inventory # 6269

About this Item: W.W. Norton & Company/Viva Books, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. This Norton Critical Edition is based on the 1912 Wessex edition, emended to correct errors which have crept into the text from the manuscript onward. It also incorporates revisions that Hardy made in his "study copy" of the novel and in his marked printer?s copy and page proofs for the Harper and Brothers "sixpenny edition" of 1901, whenever these revisions can be confidently be judged to represent Hardy?s final deliberate intention. The resulting text includes revisions by Hardy which have never appeared before in a modern edition. The novel is fully annotated and is accompanied by Hardy?s map of Wessex and a simplified map of the landscape of Far from the Madding Crowd. "Textual Notes" include a list of emendations, examples of variant readings from the manuscript to the Wessex edition, and a discussion of the choice of copy text. The textual history of the novel is traced in extracts from studies by Richard Little Purdy and Simon Gatrell. "Backgrounds" includes substantial extracts from Hardy?s correspondence with Leslie Stephen and is followed by a selection of contemporary reviews. Twentieth-century "Criticism" is represented by Howard Babb, Roy Morrell, Alan Friedman, J. Hillis Miller, Michael Millgate, Penelope Vigar, Peter J. Casagrande, Ian Gregor, and Albert C. Schweik. Contents: The Text of Far from the Madding Crowd ? Contents ? Preface ? Far From the Madding Crowd ? Textual Notes ? Robert C. Schweik and Michael Piret-(Choosing a copy-text: The problem of Hardy?s Manuscript accidentals) ? Backgrounds ? Hardy?s Map of Wesses - Simplified map of the country of Far from the Madding Crowd ?

The proud and beautiful Bathsheba Everdene is the greatest and most poignant of his heroines, the love she arouses in three very different men--the patient Gabriel Oak, the possessed Farmer Boldwood and the shameless Sergeant Troy--is of varying kinds.

About this Item: Harmondsworth : Penguin Books, 1978. First Edition. Near fine paperback copy. Slightest suggestion only of dust dulling to the spine bands and panel edges. Remains uncommonly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and sharp-cornered. Physical description; 493 p. : map ; 18 cm. 1983 reprint. Notes; Includes bibliographical references. Summary; Set in his fictional Wessex countryside in southwest England, Far from the Madding Crowd was Thomas Hardy's breakthrough work. Though it was first published anonymously in 1874, the quick and tremendous success of Far from the Madding Crowd persuaded Hardy to give up his first profession, architecture, to concentrate on writing fiction. The story of the ill-fated passions of the beautiful Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors offers a spectacle of country life brimming with an energy and charm not customarily associated with Hardy. Review: The one Wessex novel with an irresistible heroine. Bathsheba Everdene makes a lot of mistakes. She should have married Gabriel Oak within 50 pages. But that would have deprived us of the novel and we would have missed Sergeant Troy, all false pride and dangerous charm. Troy's reappearance - missing, presumed dead - and his murder by Bathseba's first husband has a genuine Gothic qulaity that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Review by Roy Hattersley, whose books include 'Blood and Fire: The Story of William and Catherine Booth and Their Salvation Army' (Kirkus UK). Subjects; Pastoral fiction, English. Romance fiction, English. Women farmers England Fiction. Farm life Fiction. Women farmers Fiction. Triangles (Interpersonal relations) Fiction. English fiction. Fiction in English.

Remains uncommonly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and sharp-cornered. Physical description; 493 p. : map ; 18 cm. 1983 reprint. Notes; Includes bibliographical references. Summary; Set in his fictional Wessex countryside in southwest England, Far from the Madding Crowd was Thomas Hardy's breakthrough work. Though it was first published anonymously in 1874, the quick and tremendous success of Far from the Madding Crowd persuaded Hardy to give up his first profession, architecture, to concentrate on writing fiction. The story of the ill-fated passions of the beautiful Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors offers a spectacle of country life brimming with an energy and charm not customarily associated with Hardy. Review: The one Wessex novel with an irresistible heroine. Bathsheba Everdene makes a lot of mistakes. She should have married Gabriel Oak within 50 pages. But that would have deprived us of the novel and we would have missed Sergeant Troy, all false pride and dangerous charm. Troy's reappearance - missing, presumed dead - and his murder by Bathseba's first husband has a genuine Gothic qulaity that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.

About this Item: Welsh Outlook Press, 1926. Disbound. Condition: Good. First Edition. 26 pages. Published from 1914 to 1933, The Welsh Outlook was intended to promote a view of Cultural Nationalism and social progress within Wales, as reflected in the topics in each monthly part. The magazine is considered to have been important in the development of Welsh Nationalism, and Wales as a Nation separate from the rest of Britain, most especially so from England through the Welsh language. The print runs were tiny, even by the standards of the day, perhaps only 2000 an issue in the early days, rather less later, and are consequently tricky to find. Note; this is an original monthly part separated from the annual volume, and does not have the original wrappers. Contains; David Williams, 1738-1816 by W. Philip Williams; The Statistical Study of Heredity and its Bearing on Social Reform by D. Caradog Jones; The Inspiration of The Scriptures by Dr. Cynddylan Jones; Jottings on English Writers and Wales - Henry Cary by Prof. H.
