A 1999 Folio Society edition, with introduction by Penelope Fitzgerald and engravings by Simon Brett. George Eliot's influential novel Middlemarch is a “study of provincial life.” At its centre are the beautiful and inquisitive Dorothea Brooke and the ambitious young doctor Tertius Lydgate, who both have to abandon their idealist views when faced with the reality of daily life.
Binding suggestion: This book would look striking when rebound in crimson leather. Add a blind boarder to the front, with gold lettering on the spine and five raised bands lined in gold. Finish with gilt edges and add a silk ribbon to mark your page. If this book is a gift to mark a special occasion, why not add initials and a date.
