The Scouring of the White Horse;

Hughes (Thomas)

The Scouring of the White Horse;

or, the Long Vacation Ramble of a London Clerk.

Description: FIRST EDITION, first issue, some spotting, a little severe in places, pp. xi, [i], 228, 16, 8vo, original pictorially gilt cloth, a little worn

Publication Details: Cambridge: Macmillan and Co. 1859

Notes: Though most famous for 'Tom Brown's Schooldays', Hughes wrote very little fiction - only the two Tom Brown books (themselves 'lightly fictionalized' from his and his brother's experiences), and this. Ostensibly a novel, it is more truly an account of the local customs of his home county of Berkshire, focusing on the regular games and festivities surrounding the maintenance of the White Horse of Uffington.
