WELL-BELOVED. A Sketch of a Temperament

Hardy Thomas

London: Osgood, M'Ilvaine and Co, 1897. First edition, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, THOMAS HARDY. A copy with fine provenance, having been in the collection of renown bibliophile Carroll Atwood Wilson. With an etching as frontispiece and map of Wessex. 8vo, in the publisher's original dark green cloth, the upper board with the T/H decorative monogram in gilt, the spine gilt lettered, t.e.g. Now in a handsome morocco back gilt decorated slipcase with chemise. ix, 338 pp. A very fine and handsome copy in the original cloth, only a small mark on the rear upper board edge, otherwise very fresh and unfaded, bright gilt, hinges strong, text clean and tight. FIRST EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC AND A COPY SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND WITH NOTEWORTHY PROVENANCE. Hardy’s intense story was his last and one of his most interestingly written. Almost comical in tone and with a tongue-in-cheek attitude yet brutally honest and insightful. The central figure is a man obsessed with the search for his ideal woman and sculpting the perfect figure of a naked Aphrodite. It hauntingly explores the life of a this man tormented by desire for an ideal love. Much to his chagrin, the ideal (referred to as the well-beloved) inhabits the bodies of a series of women, and never for long. He lives his life in anguished pursuit.
