SKU: 12599

Ed by James A. Work. A verbatim reprint of the first London edition of each of the nine volumes (as opposed to reprints from the edited posthumous 1780 version, which is not Sterne's own). Preserves the unusual punctuation and grammar. Well annotated. Some underlining and marginalia, spine wrinkeld, but good condition for age. Originally published between 1759 and 1767 in 9 volumes. Humorous novel full of double entendre, digressions, and commentary on language. Full of references to John Locke's theories and metaphysical poets. Odyssey Press, NY 1955. 647 pgs. Paper. $3.00
