MEREDITH, George. One of our conquerors.

London. Chapman and Hall, 1891. First edition.
8vo. In three volumes. [4], 302; iv, 320; iv, 307pp, [1]. Contemporary green half-morocco, marbled boards, lettered in gilt. Spines rubbed and a trifle sunned. Marbled endpapers, ink ownership inscriptions of 'Halsey Ricardo' to blank fly-leaves, slightest of browning to endpapers, internally clean and crisp.
The first edition of one of novelist and poet George Meredith's (1828-1909) later works, demonstrating the increasingly cryptic, indirect, and philosophical writing style which would mark his latter novels.

Halsey Ricardo (1854-1928), architect of the Arts-and-Crafts movement.
