Madame Bovary

By Flaubert, Gustave




Madame Bovary is Gustave Flaubert's first novel and considered his masterpiece. The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns.

Madame Bovary

FLAUBERT, GUSTAVE

Paris: Michel Levy Freres, 1857. First Edition; two volumes; bound as one in contemporary cloth and marbled paper boards; marbled endpapers, typically bound without wrappers. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author to a bookseller in Rouen, “a mon ami Mr Lebrumont souvenir de son tout devoue. Gve Flaubert.” Bookplates; very good in a quarter brown morocco clamshell box. Widely praised as among the greatest of all novels, and those who might disagree would likely admit it as being one of the literary achievements of the 19th century.

Madame Bovary.

FLAUBERT, Gustave.

Paris: Michel Lévy frères,, 1857. 2 volumes, octavo (180 x 113 mm). Contemporary purple morocco-backed marbled boards, spines tooled gilt in compartments with raised bands and two morocco title labels each, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, with tricolour silk page markers. Original printed wrappers bound in. With the half-titles in each volume. Spines sunned, some minor stains and scratches, bound-in wrappers somewhat dust-soiled and marked, still a very good copy. First edition, first trade printing with the dedicatee's name misspelt "Senart" (for Senard) and the continuous pagination between both volumes; with the originals wrappers and half-titles preserved. First published in the magazine La Revue de Paris in 1856, the novel was immediately sued for "outrage aux bonnes moeurs" (affront to public decency) and Flaubert was appearing before the Court on 7th February 1857. Defended by Maitre Senard, he was found not guilty, and the publication resumed. Madame Bovary is one of the greatest novels of its epoch and Flaubert's masterpiece.

Madame Bovary.

FLAUBERT, Gustave.

London: Vizetelly & Co.,, 1886. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and centre tool to spine gilt, single rule to boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. Frontispiece with tissue guard and 5 plates. The occasional minor blemish but overall in excellent condition and in a fine binding. First edition in English of Flaubert's masterpiece. The translator was Karl Marx's daughter, then living openly with Edward Bibbens Aveling, a married man whose name she used in conjunction with her own. Flaubert's debut novel was five years in the making, and originally serialised in the Revue de Paris. It provoked charges of obscenity and immorality from the French government, resulting in a trial at which Flaubert was acquitted. The ensuing publicity also ensured that upon publication the book became a bestseller. The heroine of the novel, Emma Bovary, ultimately commits suicide by swallowing arsenic - a fate which also befell her translator, Eleanor Marx-Aveling.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original Penguin Classics series Penguin invited five designers - not necessarily book or even graphic designers - giving them carte blanche each to design a book exactly as they wished. The designer here is the shoe designer Manolo Blahnik and he explains that he aimed for a fun rather than a solemn, respectful cover, one inspired by what he calls the golden era of English drawing typified by Cecil Beaton and Oliver Messel. Madame Bovary is undressed in a chiffon peignoir and mules which Blahnik, in a nod to his work, has designed for her. ... ...
