Bel-Ami - Guy de Maupassant

The Folio Society, 0, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges, some small closed tears, an overall faded appearance. Boards a little rubbed at extremities. Leans slightly. Top edges of text block dusty. Text bright and tight.

Of Maupassant's six novels, Bel-Ami is the most characteristic; it brings us closer to the extraordinary genius, its author, than anything else he wrote, a handful of short stories apart. In Bel-Ami we have an essence, a distillation of what Paris then was, just as in Dickens we have a vanished London, and in Scott a vanished Edinburgh.
