This Bookseller’s Breakfast is a gluten free lemon cake with fresh raspberries and Greek yoghurt with this lovely old copy of Thomas Hardy’s Tess and a cup of strong tea. Perfect!


Tess of the d’Urbervilles initially appeared in a censored and serialised version, published by illustrated newspaper The Graphic in 1891and in book form in 1892. Though now considered a major nineteenth-century English novel and possibly Hardy’s fictional masterpiece, Tess of the d’Urbervilles received mixed reviews when it first appeared, in part because it challenged the sexual morals of late Victorian England.
