Erewhon or Over the Range

Erewhon or Over the Range

London: Trubner & Co. 1872. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION. FIRST BOOK. INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. An excellent presentation copy, inscribed by Butler: "H.T. Gillson 1 Hans Court Temple from the Author" on the title page. Only a very few presentation copies of Erewhon are known, due to the book having been published anonymously. Samuel Butler (1835-1902) was an important writer and satirist perhaps best known for this book and for The Way of All Flesh. Erewhon was a satire on Victorian society and also revealed Butler's interest in Darwin's theory of evolution. The recipient, Henry Thomas Gillson (1837-1929) was one of Butler's close friends a his confidant when they attended St. John's College Cambridge, together. He later became a solicitor and occasional writer. His chambers in the Temple were near Butler's own in Clifford's Inn. Unlike Butler, Gillson was married and had a family. Bound in original brown cloth beveled boards with gilt title to spine and black title with decoration to front board. Slight wear to spine ends and corners but covers are exceptionally nice. Expertly rebacked. Some aging to pages but interior is otherwise very clean. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom morocco backed cloth box. Staining to lower edges of box boards otherwise very good. 246 pages. Near Fine.
