Edition: Book club edition.

New York: Random House, (1995.) dj. Hardcover - Full size edition, easily mistaken for the first, since it states "first edition" on the copyright page and has the correct number line - main differences are the lack of price on the dj, plain endpapers. The second massive epic novel by the author of "Through a Glass Darkly" set in the early 18th century. Focusing on a 20 year old widow, Barbara Devane, who finds herself financially and emotionally devasted from the death of her husband in suspicious circumstances, the story sweeps from the tobacco plantations of Virginia to Hanoverian England to the South Sea Bubble scandal. Author's historical note, list of characters. 733 pages. ISBN: 0-394-569296).

Condition: Very near fine in a near fine dustjacket. (a tight, straight and clean copy, unusually good condition for such a thick book, scratch to back cover of dj - dj now protected by an archival cover.)
