Two Novels: The Semi-Attached Couple & The Semi-Detached House.
Forward by Lord Avon. Intro by Anthony Eden. Emily Eden [1797-1869] was the 12th child of William Eden, Baron Auckland. Her brother George who succeeded to the title was Governor General of India, and Emily lived with him. She wrote three books about life there. She also wrote two novels. When she published The Semi-Detached Home in 1859, she was encouraged to brush up and publish the novel she had written years earlier but had held back. This was published in 1860. Hence the two novels in this volume. Often compared to Jane Austen because her novels are clever, and they are historically and socially accurate. Hb, Dj. 1st ed thus. London: Victor Gollancz. 1969.
