Some Recolledtions by Emma Hardy with Some Relevant Poems by Thomas Hardy.

London: Oxford University Press, 1961. [Memoir] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.xv; [1]; 91; [1]. Publisher's brown cloth lettered in gilt to spine, typographic dust-jacket with printed price of 16s to front flap. Photographic frontispiece, with eleven halftone plates. Ex-libris stamp front paste-down, rolling to spine, bumping to edges, toning to dust-jacket spine, sticker mark to front flap of jacket. Very good. This book is a collation of Emma Hardy's personal manuscripts alongside some poetry of Thomas Hardy. Emma Hardy wrote three manuscripts that were found by her husband after her death, but Thomas Hardy found the first two 'so painful to him that he destroyed them'. This third manuscript, however, remains; it reflects on her early life before her marriage. The illustrations that accompany the text include a number of unpublished sketches by both Emma and Thomas.
