The Happy Hypocrite exerts a hypnotising charm. Sir Max Beerbohms fairy tale for tired men is one of the pinnacles of 1890s chic and elegance. His famously rich style, laced with equal parts of tenderness and severity, serves up a story of love, and, more importantly, what we will do for it.George Hells life as a Regency buck is turned upside down when Jenny Mere, a dancer, arrives in his life.

It only remains for him to live up to the pure expectations of this lowly girl. Will he succeed, or will his old wicked habits die hard? Will the world let him forget them? He decides that certain extraordinary measures are necessary to achieve this lofty aim, but never guesses just how much power his love has - and is miraculously transformed.Fisrt published in Volume XI of the legendary Yellow Book in 1896, this beautiful fable crowned Beerbohms reputation as a weaver of glorious fabrics of prose.

This edition reproduces George Sheringhams splendid illustrations, first seen in the edition of 1918.
