Restless Human Hearts is the centrepiece of the triptych of early works by Richard Jefferies. The original (1875) and ambitious three-volume work anticipates the mature author in many of its themes.  Nature and nature mysticism are sharply contrasted with the decadence of fashionable Mayfair society.  Brimming with original and often audacious ideas, the novel is also notable for its gallery of women characters – Heloise, who experiences mystical raptures alone on the downs but marries a brutal and debased peer; Georgiana, a feminist intellectual who defies convention by entering on a trial marriage with her lover; and the sin-stained Carlotta, a cross-dressing femme fatale whose nemesis comes in a close encounter with a cobra in a train compartment.

 This edition carries a lively introduction by Andrew Rossabi, President of The Richard Jefferies Society, who argues for a revaluation of a neglected novel never before re-issued.

 The book is published in hardback (brown wibalin cloth cover) with no dust-cover and runs to 478 pages. The image is taken from the frontispiece of the book.
