Book Description: Chapman and Hall, London, 1859. First edition, first issue. Octavo, original red cloth. In near fine condition with light wear. First issue, with page 213 misnumbered as 113, the signature mark "b" on the List of Plates, and other first-issue points as called for. Illustrated by H.K. Browne, with 16 engraved plates by him. Housed in a custom morocco clamshell box. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible. Bookseller Inventory # 3829

Book Description: London Chapman and Hall, 1859. A Tale of Two Cities in the Rare Original Wraps DICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H. K. Browne London: Chapman and Hall, [July-December] 1859. First edition, in the original eight numbers, bound in seven monthly parts. Octavo. [i-vii]viii[ix-x], [1]2-254. (No half-title called for.) Sixteen inserted plates including the frontispiece and the vignette title. Original blue printed wrappers. Set collates complete, with the often-seen substitution of the Morison "Monument" ad for the Morison "View" ad in Part III, as in all other copies we've been able to trace, and with a substitution of the slip from Part I in Part V. De Jongh ad at the back of part V is different issue. Also the front wrap of Part V has been skilfully altered (it was originally from Part I). Plates are lightly foxed. Text is of first issue with p. 213 showing "113" and the List of Plates bearing signature "b." Some moderate wear and soiling to parts, with previous owner's signatures on the front wrap of three parts, and light soiling to frontispiece in part VII/VIII. Some professional restoration to two parts. Overall, a very good set. Chemised in quarter green morocco slipcase. A Tale of Two Cities marks the final collaboration of Phiz and Dickens, as well as Dickens' return to Chapman and Hall. It is one of the rarer novels in parts. The serialization in All the Year Round ran weekly from 30 April to 26 November, with the book being published on 21 November. Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 333-342. HBS 66275. $15,000.

Book Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859., 1859. A Spectacular Copy in the Original Green Cloth with the 1859 Title-PageDICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859.First edition, second state with title-page still dated 1859 but with corrected pagination on page 213 and no signature "b" on the list of plates. Octavo. [i-vii]viii[ix-x], [1]2-254 pp. Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz'].Publisher’s secondary binding of moderate olive green fine-diaper cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt, original pale yellow coated endpapers. Boards remarkably fresh. Text and plates very clean and bright with just a minimal scattering of unobtrusive foxing. Just a tiny amount of wear to the top and bottom of the spine, inner hinges very expertly and almost invisibly strengthened. Armorial bookplate of Sir James Martin on front pastedown. A wonderful copy of this late novel, now extremely scarce in either of the original cloth bindings. This is by far the finest copy in original ‘green’ cloth of A Tale of Two Cities that we have ever seen, and although it is the ‘secondary binding’, it’s superlative condition really does justify it’s addition to any fine Dickens collection. Chemised in a full green morocco slip case.This is a true first edition, second state in the original olive-green cloth. The red cloth issue is usually regarded as the primary binding, but copies in the olive-green cloth with the title-page dated 1859 are considered very scarce. Copies in the green-cloth binding were thereafter issued with a title-page dated 1860. These are referred to as the 'third' issue."In the very earliest state there are two pages numbered 113, page 213 furnishing the error. This was not corrected until some copies had been printed. The absence of this error does not necessarily invalidate a first edition, though the error is much preferred because it indicates a prior or earlier printing." Eckel pp. 86/87.A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickens’s periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form marks Dickens’s return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans. The extremely large audience for the novel in All the Year Round, however, left less than the usual demand for the parts issue and, at first, for the book, both of which are quite rare. This title also marks the author’s final collaboration with Phiz, Dickens’s most evocative and most sympathetic illustrator. Smith I, 13. Bookseller Inventory # 00734
