    TRILBY.

    Edition: First edition.

    New York: Harper & Brothers, 1894. Hardcover first edition - Originally published as a serial in Harper's Magazine in 1894, this went on to be one of the best selling novels of its time, with over 200,000 copies sold in the US alone. A story of Bohemian life in 1850s Paris, this novel is most remembered for the character of Svengali, who uses hypnotism to turn Trilby, a tone-deaf artist's model into a diva. The portrayal of Svengali was also overtly anti-Semitic, but the word has nevertheless gone on to become part of the language. Illustrated with many drawings by the author, both full page and en texte. 464 pp. plus 4 pp publisher's ads.

    Condition: Good overall in a decorative art nouveau binding of a spider web with a heart in the center on beige cloth - some spine slant, darkening and rubbing to the spine.
