Powerful and thoroughly adult story, which first appeared in 1874, about the career of an unscrupulous young woman far removed from a Dickens' butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth heroine. Translated into English for the first time by Charlotte Haldane and with a preface by Alan Pryce-Jones. Good, clean copy in a price-clipped d/w showing light shelfwear and part-darkening to prelims - 332 pages.
