A very good first edition of the first novel by E.M. Forster, contrasting English and Italian sensibilities, the title derived from Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism: 'For fools rush in where angels fear to tread'. The novel's success established the author as a leading literary light of the twentieth century.
