Galsworthy’s Forsyte Saga is “remarkable for a very sensitive and exact observation of life as well as for purity of style” (DNB). The final three novels, Maid in Waiting, Flowering Wilderness, and Over the River, originally published separately, comprise a trilogy and were first published together in this volume. A facsimile reproduction of the final page of the manuscript is included in this edition. An American edition was published the previous year.
Only light sunning to spine. A near-fine copy, beautifully bound.
