New Edition. Original lime-green cloth, lettered and decorated in black on front board, lettered in gilt on spine, publisher's green-and-white monogrammed endpapers. Cloth a little dulled along leading edge of boards, light foxing, otherwise good. Henniker is best-remembered as a one-time collaborator with Thomas Hardy (The Spectre of the Real) and as the likely original for Sue in Jude the Obscure. She wrote a handful of novels, which show an mild obsession with May-to-December romances between older men and younger women, which reviewers thought "unhealthy".
