The Trumpet-Major

By Hardy, Thomas




Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840. In his writing, he immortalized the site of his birth—Egdon Heath, in Dorset, near Dorchester. Delicate as a child, he was taught at home by his mother before he attended grammar school. At sixteen, Hardy was apprenticed to an architect, and for many years, architecture was his profession; in his spare time, he pursued his first and last literary love, poetry. Finally convinced that he could earn his living as an author, he retired from architecture, married, and devoted himself to writing. An extremely productive novelist, Hardy published an important book every year or two. In 1896, disturbed by the public outcry over the unconventional subjects of his two greatest novels—Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure—he announced that he was giving up fiction and afterward produced only poetry. In later years, he received many honors. He died on January 11, 1928, and was buried in Poet’s Corner, in Westminster Abbey. It was as a poet that he wished to be remembered, but today critics regard his novels as his most memorable contribution to English literature for their psychological insight, decisive delineation of character, and profound presentation of tragedy.

HARDY, Thomas.

London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1880. First edition in book forms of Hardy's "triumphant success" 3 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, titles and illustration to front covers in black, titles to spines gilt, triple rule frames to rear covers, top edge untrimmed, others trimmed. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase with red silk ribbon. Spines slightly faded, minor wear to tips, faint marks to rear covers, a couple of gatherings unopened; an excellent set in unusually bright cloth. First edition in book form of one of Hardy's lesser-known novels. Written during the year 1879 and serialised in the magazine Good Words (where it was bowdlerized by its Scottish clergyman editor), it is a tale in which Hardy compiled the three separate strands which at that time most affected his life. One strand was his own Dorset background, and in particular the idea of a family reminiscence; another is the strand of historical study, and in particular the concentration he was then giving to the years 1804-1805 and the effect of the then recent French Revolution. "These two strands... are firmly woven into the construction of the novel, and give it remarkable unity and a steady sense of reality. Hardy was determined that the charges of unreality, brought against 'The Return of the Native', should not be repeated" (Gittings). The third strand, natural in that Hardy was then writing with an idea of how his books might appear onstage, is that the characters are "universal figures from the traditional rituals of the theatre". "It was an inspired time to begin dramatic work. Ellen Terry had joined [Henry] Irving as his leading lady in 1878... Hardy's concentration in 1879 on theatrical matters held a great importance for the novel he was writing... The pattern of the book, embracing nearly every major character, derives from the old Italian Comedy of Masks, whose debased form, the harlequinade, was showing in nearly every Victorian theatre, burlesque and ballet" (ibid). In any event, The Trumpet-Major was a triumphant success with the critics; however, in spite of Hardy himself drawing the two vignettes for the volumes' front covers, the novel in book form did not sell well. On this copy the blank rear covers have a blind-stamped three-rule border; other copies are identical except for a two-rule border. Of the 1,000 copies printed, 600 were issued with the two-rule border (almost entirely to lending libraries), 1,500 were issued with the three-rule border a month or two later, and the remaining 20 unbound quires were remaindered two years later. Since the three-decker format was intended to be rented rather than bought by the public (the vast majority of first edition copies always went directly to lending libraries), it is increasingly difficult to find Hardy's pre-1890 novels in condition approaching this. Purdy pp. 31-5.

HARDY, Thomas.

London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1880. 3 volumes, octavo. Original red diagonal-fine-ribbed cloth, front covers with pictorial design in black (encampment and mill, from a drawing by the author) and lettered in black, rear covers blocked in blind with two-line border to vols. I-II and three-line border to vol. III, spines gilt and black with design of standard, sword and bugle, cream endpapers. Housed in a dark red leather entry slipcase. From the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of the first volume. Extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, spines darkened and gently rolled, rear covers of vols. I-II slightly marked, portion of light wear to head of front cover of vol. III, very occasional light spotting chiefly restricted to margins and endleaves; subtle restoration of free endpapers vols. I and III along gutter, though vol. I with remnants of old adhesive evident on contents leaf and verso of title-page and rear pastedown rather soiled, upper outer corner of vol. I sig. G3 reattached; vol. II with effaced ownership inscription to front pastedown, inner hinge starting at head, surface-splitting to foot of rear joint and old repair to head. A very good set. First edition in book form of Hardy's great novel of the Napoleonic war, written to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Trafalgar. The story was first published in slightly bowdlerized form in Good Words, Jan-Dec 1880, with the book edition published on 26 October 1880 "in an edition of 1000 copies" (Purdy), though sales were slow and 250 sets of sheets were eventually remaindered to W. Glaisher, wholesale bookseller, in 1882. Volumes I and II represent Purdy and Sadleir's binding variant A, the original state, with the two-line border to the rear covers and the full stop between Smith and Elder in the spine-imprint centred rather than on the base line; volume III bears the three-line border and the base-line full stop indicative of scarcer variant B, a secondary binding dating from the Glaisher sale. The triple-decker format was largely adopted for sale to lending libraries, meaning that sets retaining the original cloth in anything approaching collectable condition are uncommon.

THE TRUMPET MAJOR (Believed to be the Only Known Inscribed Presentation Copy of Hardy's Famous Napoleonic Novel)

Hardy, Thomas

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. Hardy, Thomas. THE TRUMPET MAJOR. A Tale. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. 8vo. First One-Volume edition in the original publisher's red cloth, blocked in black and lettered in gilt. 32-page catalogue at rear. Very Good, cloth a little soiled and worn. PRESENTATION COPY inscribed on the verso of the front-free endpaper: "Miss Tindal Atkinson/ from/ T. Hardy." The recipient was the daughter of Hardy's good friend Henry Tindal Atkinson (1818-1890). Hardy met "Serjeant" Atkinson and his daughter in 1880 or 1881 when they became neighbors. As recorded by Hardy in the Life (155): "Though they had expected to be lonely in Wimborne after London, they [] had a genial neighbor in the county judge Tindal-Atkinson, one of the last "Serjeants-At-Law," who took care they should not mope if dinners and his and his daughter's music could prevent it." Indeed Hardy fondly referred to Atkinson as "My Dear Serjeant" in the holograph note to Atkinson from Hardy found tipped into this volume on his Max Gate stationery, dated August 21, 1885. This charming letter refers to Atkinson's "dignified" cane which was left at Max Gate and which Hardy is happy to personally return. This appears to be the only known presentation copy of Hardy's great Napoleonic novel THE TRUMPET MAJOR, his best-selling and most popular early work, first published in 1880 in an edition of 1,000 copies. There are no presentation copies of the first edition recorded in Richard Purdy's Thomas Hardy bibliography, and none appeared at the sale of the greatest collection of Thomas Hardy's first editions and manuscripts, that belonging to Frederick Baldwin Adams, Jr. (Sotheby's New York, 2001). Nor can an inscribed copy be found in the extensive Hardy collections of Carroll Atwood Wilson, Michael Sadleir, Morris Parrish, Howard Bliss, David Magee, or Robert Lee Wolff. Auction records and institutional search likewise find no other copy presented by the author, first edition or indeed later editions. Three-volume first editions of THE TRUMPET-MAJOR continue to be highly desirable but easily acquired. Ours is a black tulip, one-of-a-kind, a copy personally presented to the daughter of a man whom Hardy called friend and neighbor. Purdy (p. 35). In a vintage morocco clamshell case.. Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good.

THE TRUMPET-MAJOR

Hardy, Thomas

1880. A Novel. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1880. Undated endpaper ads. Original mustard yellow cloth decorated in black. First American Edition (it is uncertain whether this or Munro's "Seaside Library" edition preceded; Holt's was, however, the authorized one, and also it was listed in Publishers' Weekly a week earlier). This was issued as No. 118 in Holt's "Leisure Hour Series," the series in which most of Hardy's early novels first appeared in America. By 1880 the books in this series were being issued with numbers, with undated endpaper ads, and in mustard yellow cloth; in the 1870s the volumes had been issued un-numbered, with dated endpaper ads, and in cream cloth. In this copy the endpaper ads, though undated, are the primary ones (on the inside front cover listing no Hardy volumes issued after this one, and withOUT this title on the front free endpaper). This is a very good-plus copy (minor cover soil, light rubbing at the extremities). See Purdy p. 35.
