The Return of the Native is a leather-bound book with gold gilt pages and is an excellent addition to your vintage Thomas Hardy collection or Easton Press
When Clym Yeobright returns home from Paris, Eustacia Vye sees him as her escape from small-town life. This is Thomas Hardy’s searing novel of the destructive power of illusion.
The Return of the Native first appeared in the magazine Belgravia, a publication known for its sensationalism, and was presented in twelve monthly installments from January to December 1878.
Because of the novel's controversial themes, Hardy had some difficulty finding a publisher; reviews, however, though somewhat mixed, but generally positive.
A truly, gorgeously handsome volume, designed to become an heirloom, in collectible and gift condition.
The Return of the Native is in excellent vintage condition for its age with no rips or tears. Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
This beautiful leather-bound book is printed on sturdy, acid-neutral paper specially milled that conforms to all guidelines established for permanence and durability.
