FLAUBERT, Gustave. Bouvard and Pecuchet. London: H. S. Nichols, 1896.

Thick 8vo., original blue cloth, decorated in gilt with design after S. Gorski to boards and spine; upper edge gilt, else untrimmed; xii, [4], 458; with 9 pages of plates mounted behind tissue-guards; some rubbing and pushing to head and foot, the gilt faded a little to spine; endpapers offset lightly; edges and tissue guards a little browned; still a very good example.
Authorised edition, and the first in English, translated from the French with an Introduction by D. F. Hannigan.
The Author's final novel was left partly unfinished upon his death in 1880. It follows the adventures of two Parisian copy-clerks, François Denys Bartholomée Bouvard and Juste Romain Cyrille Pécuchet, over the course of several years, in their search for intellectual stimulation.
