A Room With a View

London: Folio Society, 2007. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first separate Folio Society edition with Illustrations by Glenn Boyd Harte, in a Fine slipcase with some slight surface marking -- no dust jacket, as issued. Set both in Italy and in England at the beginning of the 20th Century, the novel centers on Lucy Honeychurch, a young woman living in England under its then-restraining culture, and her attraction to George Emerson, a rather free-spirited young man. Constituting both a romance and a critique of English Edwardian-Era Society, the novel provided the basis for the 1985 movie of the same name starring Helena Bonham Carter (as Lucy) and Julian Sands (as George), and features Maggie Smith, Denholm Elliott, Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, and Simon Callow in supporting roles, was produced by Ismail Merchant, and was directed by James Ivory. The first Folio Society edition of the novel was published as part of a set of six Forster works, and this second printing of the work is the first Folio Society edition of this novel separately published. As of the date this listing, copies of this first Folio Society separate edition are surprisingly uncommon to the market. A Fine, Superior, copy in a Fine slipcase. Fine. Item #821
