Great opportunity to own an excellent edition of the classic novel John Halifax, Gentleman by Mrs. Craik

Dinah Maria Craik (born Dinah Maria Mulock, also often credited as Miss Mulock or Mrs. Craik) 1826 - 1887 was an English novelist and poet. She was born at Stoke-on-Trent and brought up in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.

After the death of her mother in 1845, Dinah Maria Mulock settled in London about 1846. She was determined to obtain a livelihood by her pen, and, beginning with fiction for children, advanced steadily until placed in the front rank of the women novelists of her day. She is best known for the novel John Halifax, Gentleman (1856). She followed this with A Life for a Life (1859), which she considered to be the best of her novels; others were The Ogilvies (1849), Olive (1850), The Head of the Family (1851), Agatha's Husband (1853), Hannah (1871), and Young Mrs. Jardine (1879). ("John Halifax" is based loosely around the life of John Dobell, a wine merchant from Cheltenham.)

John Halifax, Gentleman was first published in 1856. The novel was adapted for television by the BBC in 1974.  The action is centered in the town of Tewkesbury, scarcely disguised by the fictional name Norton Bury, in Glouchestershire.  The story is narrated by Phineas, a friend of the central character. John Halifax is an orphan, determined to make his way in the world through honest hard work. He is taken in by a tanner, Abel Fletcher, who is a Quaker, and thus meets Phineas, who is Abel's son. John eventually achieves success in business and love, and becomes a wealthy man.

This is a leather bound soft cover book with gold gilt spine writing and scrolls on binding.  The book itself has very minimal wear as well - slight wear to edge of spine/corners as can be expected for a book of this age!  Book Box sows edge wear.  All pages, bindings, hinges, etc. are tight, crisp and clean.  No tears or bent corners to paper which is colored as expected of a book of this age.
