Notes

First edition, in Carter's binding style "A", the earliest. Set in the familiar midland countryside of Eliot's early novels, Felix Holt deals with the upheavals of society at the time of the first Reform Act of 1832, anticipating the election scenes in her next novel, Middlemarch. The work was well-received commercially and "nearly 5,000 copies were sold in the first year" (ODNB).
