Girl With a Pearl Earring

by CHEVALIER, Tracy

Condition: See description


HarperCollins, 1999. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine in fine dustwrapper, with the correct spelling of 'earring' on the rear panel. Immaculate copy of the author's bestselling debut novel, memorably filmed.

A sumptuous new look for Tracy Chevalier's bestselling novel. Griet, the young daughter of a tilemaker in seventeeth century Holland, obtains her first job, as a servant in Vermeer's household. Tracy Chevalier shows us, through Griet's eyes, the complicated family, the society of the small town of Delft, and life with an obsessive genius. Griet loves being drawn into his artistic life, and leaving her former drudgery, but the cost to her own survival may be high.
