Product description

Alec Green - Silas K. Hocking (c.1880s) - Victorian hardback fiction book with decorative cloth binding
 
Originally published in 1878, this tale, set largely in a Cornish fishing village and narrated by the eponymous hero who tells his life story, was the first published novel by the elder of the brothers Silas and Joseph Hocking, Cornish-born novelists whose "pulp Methodist" fiction enjoyed great popularity in its day.
 
This slightly later (circa 1880s) edition, with decorative cloth binding and illustrations by W. Gunston, is somewhat worn, but remains complete and fully legible throughout, and would thus be suitable as a reading copy - or as a decorative accessory for a Victorian-style interior.
