No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal shelf handling; Still Gift Quality. Translation of Francis Steegmuller; Illustrated by Malcolm Liepke. --- Gustave Flaubert was an influential French novelist who was perhaps the leading exponent of literary realism in his country. He is known especially for his first published novel, Madame Bovary (1857), for his Correspondence, and for his scrupulous devotion to his style and aesthetics. ------- The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life.
