ZOLA, Emile

The Dram-Shop

London: Chatto & Windus, 1887

8vo, pp. 410, 2pp. and 32pp. publisher's advertisements bound in at front and rear respectively. Original deep red boards, lettered in gilt to spine and in black to front panel. Corners a little bumped, gilt to spine slightly dulled, but a very good copy.

Bowdlerised English translation of L'Assomoir, first published in English in 1879. The editing of this edition was overseen by Ernest Vizetelly, whose censorious mangling of Zola's original text was a waste of time, since they prosecuted him for obscenity anyway.
