HARDY, Thomas.

London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1919-20. THE MELLSTOCK HARDY 37 volumes, octavo. Contemporary blue crushed half morocco by the Atelier Bindery for Charles Scribner's Sons, gilt-tooled raised bands to spines forming compartments, titles direct to second and third with date to foot gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, light blue cloth sides ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers. Half-titles, title-pages and terminal licence-leaves printed in red and black, etched portrait frontispiece after William Strang to vol. I, map frontispiece to vol. II. Original cloth cover and spine bound in at rear of vol. I. Partly unopened, spines attractively sunned to dark green, very occasional faint spotting to the cloth, the morocco gently darkening in a few places as usual. An excellent set. The Mellstock Edition, a deluxe edition limited to 500 copies signed by the author on the limitation page in volume I. Initially discussed as early as July 1914, the start of the Great War halted production and the actual publication did not begin until December 1919. The edition name is a reference to the mythical "Mellstock" of Hardy's fiction, a combination of the tiny Dorset hamlet Stinsford with the Higher and Lower Bockhamptons. At Stinsford his grandfather was a co-founder of the church "quire"; the churchyard contains the remains of both Hardy's wives, Emma Gifford Hardy and Florence Dugdale Hardy, as well as Hardy's heart, the rest of his body having been interred in Poets' Corner at Westminster Abbey. Purdy, pp. 287-288.
