The Fifth Queen Crowned.
First edition, first impression. With his signed presentation inscription on the front free endpaper to his first wife, “Elsie Hueffer affecly [sic] from Ford M. H. 26th March MCMVIII”. Elsie’s importance in Hueffer’s development as a writer is easy to understate. However his progression from the middle ranking early efforts to the masterful and enduring work of genius that is The Good Soldier owes more than a little to her support. The third of Hueffer’s Elizabethan novels.
