BINDINGS – Two Thomas Hardy Novels. – HARDY, Thomas. The Hand of Ethelberta. A Comedy In Chapters. (1923) with Thomas Hardy’s ‘A Laodicean A Story of Today’ (1923). These two books are being sold as bindings as they both lack frontispieces, and The Laodicean lacks its map, however they make great books for display and interior decoration.
