First Edition Prices, Values and Auction Results

Mary Anne Evans served as one of the prominent writers of the Victorian era under the name George Eliot, believed to be used to have her work taken seriously and hide her private life. Her famous works include Middlemarch, Silas Marner, and The Mill on the Floss. Her works are almost entirely set in her contemporary, provincial England and are lauded for their psychological and social insight and use of realism. Many of her works feature outsiders, social reform, and the effects of politics on small-town life in England. Like many great writers of the time, her work featured a degree of autobiographical content.
