by Guy De Maupassant
Illustrated by Alistair Grant
Published by Folio Society.
Almost very good condition in a almost very good dustwrapper. With an overwhelming desire for beer, women and worldly success but less than four francs in his pocket, Georges Duroy, ex-hussar and railway-clerk, is pacing the Paris boulevards on a torrid June evening... Blue pictorial cloth, gilt title to spine. 11 colour lithographic illustrations.
Foxing to endpapers and text block. One or two gutter edges have a damp stain which affects only the margin. Blue dustwrapper is edge-worn and torn and a grubby. No slipcase as issued.
