Bound in red buckram with a black linocut illustration in a fine slipcase, as new, good clean unmarked copy. Set chiefly in strife-ridden 18thC Scotland, this book tells the story of a young man whose debased calvinism leaves him vulnerable to the insidious logic of a mysteriously diabolic stranger. He then commits a series of heinous but allegedly "justified" crimes. Hogg's novel first published in 1824, anticipates work by Poe, Hawthorne and Melville. £20.00 plus £3.00 postage = £23.00 delivered to U.K. zone 1 addresses.
