Undated first edition [1891]. Two volumes in original crimson cloth ruled and lettered in gilt on boards and spines; brown-and-white flower patterned endpapers. Several light damp spots on leading edges of boards, otherwise a tight set, good. Not in Wolff. Collates: I - [iv] + 300 pp; II - [iv] + 300 pp. A novel which combines romance with questions of (Catholic) theology and church governance. Heywood was American by birth, but this novel's title character is English, and the novel was published in London rather than New York, in the still (just) fashionable multi-volume format. Price reduced for mini-catalogue 1.
