Edges lightly faded. 1929 Full-Leather. 448 pp. Attractively bound in red leather, with gilt titles, rules & decoration, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, red ribbon marker. The Way of All Flesh (1903) is a semi-autobiographical novel by Samuel Butler which attacks Victorian-era hypocrisy. Written between 1873 and 1884, it traces four generations of the Pontifex family. It represents a relaxation from the religious outlook from a Calvinistic approach, which is presented as harsh. Butler dared not publish it during his lifetime, but when it was published it was accepted as part of the general revulsion against Victorianism. - Wikipedia
