Far from the Madding Crowd - Easton Press Leather Bound Edition

This brown leather-bound book is part of Easton Press's "The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written Collector's Edition" collection. Far from the Madding Crowd (1874) is Thomas Hardy's fourth novel and his first major literary success. It originally appeared anonymously as a monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where it gained a wide readership.

The novel is the first to be set in Thomas Hardy's Wessex in rural southwest England. It deals in themes of love, honor and betrayal, against a backdrop of the seemingly idyllic, but often harsh, realities of a farming community in Victorian England. It describes the life and relationships of Bathsheba Everdene with her lonely neighbor William Boldwood, the faithful shepherd Gabriel Oak, and the thriftless soldier Sergeant Troy.
