Título: The Trumpet-Major. A Tale. [Vol. XI of 'The ...
Editorial: Macmillan, 
Año de publicación: 1920
8vo., on laid paper, with a frontispiece in sepia photogravure (lightly spotted but original tissue guard present), half-title and title in red and black, and a double-page map in the text; original maroon cloth, decorative back gilt, gilt top, uncut, corners bruised, lower board nibbled at fore-edge to a length of about two inches, a good, sound copy. Macmillan's 'Wessex Edition' (the name was suggested by Frederick Macmillan himself) was intended as the definitive issue of Hardy's works and incorporating all the author's final amendments. Published in 24 volumes between 1912 and 1931, it is beautifully printed on laid paper and elegantly bound. Each volume contains a fine frontispiece in sepia photogravure depicting a 'real-life' scene from the novel (here it is 'Budmouth Harbour'') and a double-page 'Map of the Wessex of the Novels and Poems' made from Hardy's own drawing (now in the Dorset County Museum). 'The Wessex Edition is in every sense the definitive edition of Hardy's work and the last authority in questions of text.' (Purdy). Individual volumes are now increasingly hard to find.See Purdy, pp. 282-6. N° de ref. de la librería 6779
