Originally published in 1880, this is another of Richard Jeffries' country masterpieces that have been rediscovered by a later generation. In his introduction to this edition, C. Henry warren writes, "The abiding impression of Hodge and His Masters is one of a rare comprehension of the country character in all its complexity and an extraordinary grasp of the factual details of country life. A novel could scarcely be more absorbing in the variety of its characters drawn from life by a master-hand, whilst to the student it is an invaluable mine of information". Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
