Original brown cloth, intricately decorated in black, on boards. Previous owner's name in elegant script. First published in 1877, this is perhaps the favourite of Black's novels, seven of which we have listed in matching binding. Violet North is an attractive girl in her late teens who seems to go from one "scene" to another with hardly a break. She has irritated her German teacher into calling her a devil, which incident she is now piously describing to the Principal. She skips school for a day with a boy she hasn't known before. Later, she falls madly in love with a philosophizing recluse, whom she worries into consumption. He dies, but Violet continues to expect a letter from him. 394 pp.
