First Canadian edition. This is the only one of George Gissing's (1857-1903) twenty-six books to achieve international popularity and maintain it for one hundred years. It is the most reprinted, most cited, and most anthologized of all his books, holding up a mirror to the literary and rural instincts of the free-born Englishman, yet speaking to readers of all cultures. A landmark biblio novel. Cloth is foxed and spine label chipped.
