This is a near fine (almost like new) leather-bound hardcover. 1980 Easton Press Collectors Edition. This copy is crisp and clean inside and out. Originally Easton presented buyers with a bookplate for their book. This copy has no accompanying bookplate, nor is one affixed anywhere inside. Therefore, near fine, almost like new. Inside pages of this copy are crisp and clean with no markings seen. Inside is graced with olive green silk moire fabric endpapers. The fine binding is tight and straight featuring Smyth sewn binding with concealed joints. All three page edges are tipped in gold gilt with barely any wearing to the gilt as is often found in vintage gilt books. The edition is bound in genuine emerald green leather with gold gilt design front and back and title/author lettering along spine. The cover shows barely a hint of shelf wear, also near fine. Attached green stain ribbon bookmark. Standard octavo book size or 6" x 9" with 588 pages.
This edition of The Way of All Flesh by Samuel Butler, published by Easton Press, features an intro by Theodore Dreiser and is finely illustrated by Robert Ward Johnson. The frontispiece of Butler was specially commissioned for the edition. The novel was originally published posthumously in London, 1903. The novel is somewhat autobiographical and is a denunciation of Victorianism and the era's hypocrisy. It is considered one of the 100 best novels of the 20th century.
