George Eliot - 'Romola' - Three Volumes In Half Leather Binding - 1863, George Eliot
8 George Eliot George Eliot - 'Romola' - Three Volumes In Half Leather Binding - 1863
London Smith, Elder and Co. 1863 Half-Leather Very Good No Jacket Book 
1863, hardcover. One of George Eliot's most ambitious and imaginative novels, Romola is set in Renaissance Florence during the turbulent years following the expulsion of the powerful Medici family during which the zealous religious reformer Savonarola rose to control the city. At its heart is Romola, the devoted daughter of a blind scholar, married to the clever but ultimately treacherous Tito whose duplicity in both love and politics threatens to destroy everything she values, and she must break away to find her own path in life. Described by Eliot as 'written with my best blood', the story of Romola's intellectual and spiritual awakening is a compelling portrayal of a Utopian heroine, played out against a turbulent historical backdrop. [gd. rd.] Three volumes.Vol.1, first edition. Vols. 2 & 3 2nd edition. Light foxing at the pastedowns and the gutters, else bright and clean. The half-leather boards are tight and square and the leather is supple. Overall a very nice "three decker".
