About This Item

PENNSYLVANIA, FRANKLIN LIBRARY, 1981. QUARTER LEATHER, RAISED BANDS, ALL EDGES GILT, ELABORATE GILT DECORATIONS. FINE COPY IN PROTECTIVE ACETATE COVER.

Synopsis

Handsome and ambitious, Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble peasant origins and make something of his life-by adopting the code of hypocrisy by which his society operates. Julien ultimately commits a crime-out of passion, principle, or insanity-that will bring about his downfall. The Red and the Black is a lively, satirical picture of French Restoration society after Waterloo, riddled with corruption, greed, and ennui. The complex, sympathetic portrayal of Julien, the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions, makes him Stendhal 's most brilliant and human creation-and one of the greatest characters in European literature. Translated with an introduction by Roger Gard.

About Hawkridge Books

Visit our website at www.hawkridge.co.ukHawkridge Books – quality books with a quality service. Fine and antiquarian books bought and sold, specialising in natural history, particularly ornithology, but also including books on a wide range of interesting subjects. Hawkridge Books is owned and run by Irene and Joe Tierney; this means that customers are provided with a personal service and given individual attention. We have been in the book business for over 20 years and ran a bookshop in the Peak District village of Castleton for 15 years. The shop was closed in 2010 and we moved our best stock to our home in Broomhill, Sheffield. The current stock runs to some 7,000 volumes. Although we specialise in ornithology, where we have 1100 volumes, and natural history (700 volumes), we have books in all subjects. For example, we have 700 books published by the Folio Society, 400 history books, and a similar number on topography, including 200 books on Derbyshire. All our books are selected to ensure that they are in the best condition and any faults are mentioned.
