Published by George Slater, London, UK. No date but 1850. First edition in English. Original red cloth gilt. Size: 10.4cm x 13.8cm. pp. 201 + 2 pp ads. A novel. One of ‘Slater’s Universal Series’. Sand is recognised as being one of the most notable writers of the European Romantic era but also gained notoriety for wearing men’s attire in public and smoking, neither of which had been sanctioned in France at the time. Victor Hugo would observe: “George Sand cannot determine whether she is male or female. I entertain a high regard for all my colleagues, but it is not my place to decide whether she is my sister or my brother.” (Source: Wikipedia) Cloth very slightly dulled and rubbed to the spine. A near fine, bright, clean copy. Very scarce.
