Hillingdon Hall, or The Cockney Squire

£14.99

Product description

Robert Smith Surtees (1805 - 1864) was an English editor, novelist and sporting writer, widely known as R. S. Surtees.  He was the second son of Anthony Surtees of Hamsterley Hall, a member of an old County Durham family.  He is remembered for his invented character of Jorrocks, a vulgar but good-natured sporting cockney grocer.

This, the third of Surtees' popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the 'jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,' Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament.  The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the New Sporting Magazine, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year.

The book has rough-cut pages and contains twelve illustrations, coloured by hand, each protected by a tissue guard.

There is some rubbing and bumping to the covers of the book.  The spine is sunned and faded.  There is an inscription on the front free end paper.  There is light to moderate foxing on the front and rear free end pages, the title page and the page ends.  Inside, the pages are clean, the illustrations are bright and the binding is sound.
