London, Blackwood, 1886. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Three volumes, complete. 24pp ads. A tale of the "perniciousness of evangelical cults;" something of acute interest to the author given his relationship with a New York Utopian movement. The novel features a uncommonly well-written female character who shakes off the shackles of the patriarchy. Some lean to the spines and a little bumping to the tips and some rubbing. A nice copy.
