Notes

A fine binding for this attractive edition of Butler's major novel, first published posthumously in 1902, a powerful autobiographical work recording his pained and satirical dissent from patriarchal Victorian hypocrisy. Farleigh was one of the best wood-engravers of the pre-War era, achieving his greatest success with the illustrations to George Bernard Shaw's The Adventures of the Black Girl in her Search for God (1932).
