This is the first US edition of this collection of Thomas Hardy short stories, "A Changed Man, The Waiting Supper, and Other Tales, Concluding with The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid" (407 pages), published by Harper & Brothers in October, 1912. The cover (app. 5.75" x 7.5"), dark blue cloth with gold initials in a floral circle on the front, gold lettering to the spine, has a number of scuffs, but no prominent stains. The gilt to the front is unfaded; that to the spine is faded but legible. The spine is straight and securely connected, but sun faded and with fraying to its top edge, curl to the bottom edge. The outside corners have shallow bumps. The inside is in very good condition. There are no stamps or other attachments. The only writing is a name and the date Christmas 1913, on the front end page. The frontispiece illustration, with its tissue guard in place, is clean and unfaded. The map of Wessex, on the final printed page, is also in good condition, with no fade or stains. There are few creases, none significant. The binding is secure, with no loose or missing pages. The page edges are lightly scuffed, and with few small stains, but with no tears. The text pages are clean throughout the book, with no stains of note, and no fade to the lettering. The accompanying photos are of this copy. Bookseller Inventory # 1152
