A collectable and scarce early edition of The Works of Charles Dickens. Please note: This is heavy set(approx 22 Kg). Books sizes: 7.9 x 4.9 inches. This is another paragraph The books are as follows: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club ( 2 volumes, no date given but probably 1867), Nicholas Nickleby(2 volumes, dated 1869), Martin Chuzzlewit(2 volumes, dated 1969), Old Curiosity Shop & Reprinted Pieces(2 volumes), Barnaby Rudge(2 volumes including Hard Times), Sketches by Boz,Oliver Twist(dated 1868), David Copperfield(2 volumes,dated 1870), Pictures from Italy, Bleak House( 2 volumes,dated 1867), Little Dorrit( 2 volumes, dated 1862 & 1867), Christmas Books(dated 1868), Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations( dated 1866), Our Mutual Friend(2 volumes, dated 1869), Dombey and Son(2 volumes, dated 1868).The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club includes Charles Dicken's preface("in his preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens strenuously denied any specific input, writing that "Mr Seymour never originated or suggested an incident, a phrase, or a word, to be found in the book."). Also, on the second page of the The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club volume I, it is printed: The Best Edition of my Books Is, Of Right, Inscribed to my Dear Friend John Forster, Biographer of Oliver Goldsmith. Many Patient Hours he has Devoted to the Correction of the Proof Sheets of the Original Editions; And in Affectionate Acknowledgement of His Councel, Sympathy, And Faithful Friendship During My Whole Literary Life. This is another paragraph Later Editions: Upon completion of serialization the works were issued as complete novels in one to three volumes with original, and in some instances, additional illustrations. Starting in 1847 the older novels were reissued in what was called the Cheap Edition, these were published in weekly and monthly parts, and then as complete novels. Eventually all of Dickens' novels were reissued in the Cheap Edition. The concept of the Cheap Edition was similar to today's practice of reissuing hardback novels as more affordable paperbacks. Other editions published during Dickens lifetime include the Library Edition: a high quality set published without illustrations in 1858/59. This set was reissued between 1861 and 1874 with illustrations and was called the Illustrated Library Edition. In 1867 the Charles Dickens Edition was released. This edition featured new prefaces, written by Dickens, who also made minor corrections to the text. Chapman and Hall produced the Peoples Edition in 1865-1867, these were inexpensive monthly installments of the novels aimed at travelers in the very popular bookstalls popping up in railway stations all over Britain. Dickens' works were also published in America, sometimes simultaneously with the British edition and often with little or no compensation to the author or his publishers due to the lack of an international copyright law. Dickens campaigned unsuccessfully for international copyright. Bookseller Inventory # 6097

"To own Gadshill Place was one of the earliest ambitions of Charles Dickens. As a very small boy he would come out here from his home in Ordnance Terrace, Chatham, and would sit for hours by the wayside conjuring up visions of Falstaff and his gallants and brooding over the house he loved so much.About 1855 Dickens heard unexpectedly that the darling of his boyhood was in the market. His assistant editor, Mr. W.H. Willis, negotiated for it, and it was finally acquired in March, 1856, the cheque for it being written on a Friday. As Dickens remarked about this time, all important events happened to him on a Friday." (From Page 2-3 of the 1923 sale catalogue). Gimbel. Hatton and Cleaver, Smith, Dickens, HBS 66340. $7,500.

Item Description: Chapman & Hall,, London:, 1891. Color frontispiece. Published with 100+ illustrations by Kitton, et al. Letter facsimiles. This 1/20 limited copy with 5 additional inserted plates & facsimiles. Also, extra-illustrated for presentation, including 130+ additional plates, many of them india proofs, along with steel plate engravings & etchings [16 hand-colored, 3 in sepia tone], some folding. Additionally, inserted on mounts are 7 ALs letters [see below], as well as a signed CDV of Rev. Dr. Wordsworth, Bishop of Lincoln. About 20 years after the death of Dickens, the author and his friend & fellow Dickensian, Mr. F. G. Kitton, decided to find and visit the real- life settings for the scenes in Dickens's novels and stories. Following their trip, Chapman & Hall published this limited edition in 20 copies with more than a hundred in-text illustrations showing these venues, with five extra illustrations including two matte collodion portrait photographs of the author and Mr. Kitton. Our copy is additionally extra adorned with 7 authograph letters by George Augustus Sala (2), Douglas Jerrold (3), George Hogarth (4), Dante G. Rossetti (5) (referring to Mr. Swinburne's affairs), Charles Roach Smith (6), Mark Lemon (7), and John Ruskin (8); and also includes an authograph and signed carte de visite by Rev. Dr. Wordsworth (9), bishop of Lincoln. (1) The Guild of Women- Binders was founded by Frank Karslake (who also founded The Hampstead Bindery) in 1898. It operated until 1904 as a loosely-knit federation of women binders from such groups as the Edinburgh Social Union, the Kirkby Lonsdale Handicraft Class, the Chiswick Art Workers' Guild, and Miss Bassett's Leighton Buzzard Handicraft Class for crippled girls, among others. Some of the more outstanding women binders represented by the Guild included Miss Constance Karslake, Miss Edith de Rheims, Florence de Rheims, Miss Helen Schofield, Mrs. Frances Knight, Mrs. Macdonald, Miss Lilian Overton, Miss Gaskell and Miss Edwards. The Guild, together with its counterpart, The Hampstead Bindery, published "The Bookbindings of To- morrow" in 1902, and held both exhibitions and sales of their bindings at Sotheby's. (2) George Augustus Sala was a renown British journalist. In 1851 Charles Dickens accepted his article, "The Key of the Street," for his journal, Household Words. This was the first of many articles that Dickens published over the next few years. In April, 1856, Dickens sent Sala to Russia as the journal's special correspondent. Sala also contributed to the author's next venture, "All the Year Round." (3) Douglas William Jerrold was an English dramatist and writer. He founded and edited for some time, with indifferent success, the Illuminated Magazine, Jerrold's Shilling Magazine, and Douglas Jerrold's Weekly Newspaper; and under his editorship Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper rose from almost nonentity to a circulation of 582,000. The history of his later years is little more than a catalogue of his literary productions, interrupted now and again by brief visits to the Continent or to the country. Douglas Jerrold died at his house, Kilburn Priory, in London on the 8 June 1857 and was buried at West Norwood Cemetery, where Charles Dickens was a pall-bearer. Dickens gave a public reading to raise money for Jerrold's widow. (4) George Hogarth was a Scottish newspaper editor, music critic, and musicologist. He authored several books on opera and Victorian musical life in addition to contributing articles to various publications. From 1846Ð1866 he worked as a music critic for The Daily News, a paper which was founded by Charles Dickens. He had previously met Dickens in 1834 while they were both working for the Morning Chronicle. In 1836 Dickens married Hogarth's eldest daughter Catherine. One of his younger daughters, Georgina, was Dickens' housekeeper, adviser, and, after Dickens' death, the editor of "The Letters of Charles Dickens from 1833 To 1870." (5) Dante Gabriel Rossetti was an English poet, illustrator, painter and trans. Bookseller Inventory # 2230.6

Item Description: London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846-48., 1846. First edition. A fine set of Dombey and Son in original parts, completely unsophisticated, as evidenced by the ink signature on each front wrapper of a contemporary reader, Stephen Blair. Dickens novels in parts with the evidence of the contemporary ownership on each wrapper are rare, and such provenance is virtually the only way to establish that a set has not been sophisticated, "married" or "made up." 19 parts in 20, 8vo, original pictorial blue wrappers. 40 plates. Hatton & Cleaver, pages 227-250. This set agrees with Hatton and Cleaver's description, except that in part 11 there is no ad for Letts & Son, and the ad for Kaye's Pills in part 12 varies slightly from the one described by Hatton & Cleaver. Two of the three misprints noted by Hatton & Cleaver are present: part 11, page 324, "Capitan" for "Captain"; part 14, page 426, "if" is not present; on page 431, the page number is present (in Hatton & Cleaver's earliest issue the number is omitted). Plates foxed - as seems inevitable - some minor paper repairs to the corners of a few spines; a few wrappers slightly soiled and smudged; overall in very nice condition, as issued.

Item Description: Wiley and Putnam, 1846 - 1848, New York:, 1846. Illustrated with 36 plates after Phiz, redrawn & engraved on wood by J. W. Orr. Publication began without waiting for the illustrations, so Part I comes without plates, the plates issued beginning with Part II. The final 4 illustrations not issued with the Parts, but would be available with the subsequent volume issue. At the base of the front wrapper(s) is found the statement: "The Illustration for this Number will be given with the Next." Wiley & Putnam were the first of the US houses to hit the streets with Dickens' new novel, beginning with Part I issued October 1846, though in the rush to press, the part was issued without the 2 plates found in the Bradbury & Evans production. A quite scarce edition, especially in comparison to the UK parts issue, which shows up with some regularity. Occasional soiling & staining to wrappers, with some modest chipping to spine paper. First 9 numbers with previous owner signature. Part XIX/XX lacks rear wrapper. Some foxing. Overall, Very Good. Printed grey-brown paper wrappers. 7-1/2" x 5". 1st US edition (Gimbel A104; Edgar & Vail, p. 24; Smith AMERICAN, 7; VanderPoel B197(1); Wilkins, p. 25). 20 parts in 19.

Item Description: Chapman & Hall,, London:, 1836. 4 plates. Early in his career, while busily at work on PICKWICK, Dickens found time to write this political tract (under this Sparks pseudonym) in support of the working man's freedom on the Sabbath, which was being threatened by Parlimentary action. This role of working man's champion was to continue throughout his life. The first edition of this work, in original wrappers, is quite scarce. VG (some soiling & wear). Over, quite a respectable copy of this delicate, emphemeral piece. Slipcase - spine sunned to tan, otherwise VG+. Original printed wrappers. Chemised, and housed in a full green morocco pull-off slipcase. Accompanied by a bound copy of the 1884 Jarvis facsimile. 12mo. 1st edition (Eckel, pp 102-103). 49, [3 (blank)] pp. Trimmed edges.

Item Description: London or New York, 1850-1859, 1859. Household Words was considerably more popular in England than America and its publishing history in America is "almost absolutely dark, as is the whole subject of periodical printing and 'arrangements' . The 1850's were years of copyright agitation in America, and certainly no legally protective arrangements were possible to the English publishers before the journal was discontinued in 1859. And it is not surprising that the course of Household Words was not so brilliant in American as was that of its successor All the Year Round . It was partially a local work and not quite so interesting to an America as to an English reader; it had changed publishers too often; there was no legitimate arrangement between the English proprietors and the American publishers; it was sold at too high a price; it had been published by inexperienced people and therefore had not received proper publicity and promotion; and its lack of pictorial illustration made it unpopular with the masses" (Buckler, William E., "'Household Words' in America," in Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America, vol. 45, pp. 160-66.) Household Words was published every Wednesday from March 1850 to May 1859 A mixed set some with London imprints. Volumes I-IV & XIII (Office, 16, Wellington Street) and some with New York, Dix and Edwards (Vols. VI & VII) New York: McElbrath and Barker (Vol. VIII) etc. 20 vols., 8vo. . Original green blind-stamped pebbled cloth. One volume slightly split, rest very fresh. Bookplate of St. Paul's School, ex dono plate of Mr. Francis F. Randolph, small unobtrusive blind stamp on title pages. Bookseller Inventory # 241492

"Pickwick was issued when Dickens’ name was just beginning to excite the attention of prescient publishers and be recognized by readers in search of entertaining novels . The publication of PICKWICK, which ran through twenty numbers, made for all time an English classic--a book representative of its age, exhibiting the life and the ideals of an important class of English folk, on the threshold of the Victorian era. "Now, over a century and a half later, PICKWICK holds its assured place in the literature of our tongue, and, among all its author’s works, seems to have the best chance of achieving what is known as immortality. The book was an improvisation. Dickens was led by his genius and by the indulgence of his jocose fancy into picturing all the popular life which his varied experience in and out of London had made familiar to him. And it is a book that appeals throughout life--to the child and to the person of late years" (Gissing). Like others of Dickens’ creations, it is a masterpiece. Bookseller Inventory # 25509

Item Description: [St. Luke's Hospital], [1860], [London]:, 1860. This short piece by Dickens, on St. Luke's Hospital, originally published in the January 17 1852 issue of HOUSEHOLD WORDS. With Dickens' consent, it was reissued in this pamphlet form by the Hospital management as a fund- raising mechanism. The first issue had purple wrappers, in which the 'appeal' was not highlighted from the remainder of the text and, evidently, donations suffered accordingly. in this second issue, the wrappers are pink, the 'appeal' is boldly printed, and it was accompanied by an easy-to-use return envelope [much as we see today in the solicitations we receive. make it easy on the mark!]. A rather uncommon item of Dickensiana. Wrappers a bit faded, & show a mite of soiling. Paper repair to front wrapper top edge, as well as spine paper. Old vertical fold crease to center, as is usually found [from mailing?]. A VG copy. Original pale pink printed wrappers, sewn. Typographical border surrounding title lettering on front wrapper. 7" x 4-3/4". 1st separate edition, second issue (Eckel, pp. 188-191; Gimbel B-216; VanderPoel B-465). 19, [1] pp. Bookseller Inventory # 27986
