Item Description: 1862. Works of Charles Dickens. Household Edition. [In Two Volumes.] Illustrated from Drawings by F. O. C. Darley and John Gilbert. New York: Sheldon and Company, 1862. Original dark green cloth. Very early American Edition -- the later Sheldon issue (being volumes of the "Household Edition").~There has been much controversy over which is the first American edition -- the "Household" edition by James Gregory, or the edition by T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia. Walter Smith's new bibliography of Dickens's American editions will give the nod to Peterson's, with considerable information on this controversy. In the meantime here is the brief known history.~On November 15, 1860, Harper entered a copyright for the book, and then serialized the tale in Harper's Weekly beginning on November 24 and ending on August 3, 1861 (however, there is no book edition published by Harper in 1861, as they sold the book rights to Peterson). On August 26, barely three weeks later (and about seven weeks after the English three-decker was published), James Gregory of New York entered a two volume set for copyright (having undoubtedly set the type from the Harper serialization). Peterson of Philadelphia did not enter his one-volume edition at the LofC until November 8th, almost three months later. But: Peterson's edition was actually out in the public's hand by the month of July, while Gregory's did not actually hit the streets until September. So although Gregory's was the first edition to deposit copies at the Library of Congress, Peterson's was the first "published" -- put into the hands of the public.~The earliest Gregory volumes bear his name as publisher on the 1861 title pages; on later copies (as here -- this one is dated 1862) the imprint of Sheldon and Company replaces Gregory's. Each volume includes a frontispiece plate by F. O. C. Darley, with protective tissue. These volumes are in bright, just-about-fine condition (faint discoloration of the covers).

Printed from the Manuscript and Early Proof-Sheets purchased from the Author, for which Charles Dickens has been paid in cash, the sum of One Thousand Pounds Sterling. 8 pp undated ads (paginated 7-[14]). Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers, n.d. [1861]. Without original wrappers. THE TRUE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, being the 168-page edition published by Peterson without any illustrations (other than a stock frontispiece portrait of Dickens). Most importantly, this copy still includes the eight pages of ads at the rear, in which (touting "Twenty-Nine Different Editions" of Charles Dickens's Works, each of which is available from Peterson in a variety of bindings) GREAT EXPECTATIONS is not listed. Furthermore, there are listings of other authors' works (such as those of Caroline Lee Hentz on the first page of ads) where the listings cease with books published in 1861 or earlier.~There has been much discussion about which American edition lays claim to the honor of First American Edition. It has been put forth that the two-volume "Household Edition" by James Gregory was the first, as he was apparently the first to file deposit copies. However, what matters is which edition was actually first in the hands of the public, and, as Walter Smith is spelling out in his new bibliography of Dickens in America, this Peterson edition was the first out. (There were two issues, but the two can be differentiated only by the price on the wrappers, and this copy lacks its original wrappers.)~Further complicating matters is that Peterson kept reprinting Dickens titles from the same plates, never dating title pages, so in this case it is the lack of illustrations plus the definitive ads that are vital. There are numerous other Peterson editions, first with illustrations added in as separate plates, and then as illustrations integrated into the text -- both in octavo and in duodecimo format -- that are the most common Peterson editions today.~This copy lacks its original wrappers, and appears to have been trimmed down slightly, but is otherwise in fine condition (some protective rice paper added over the spine itself).
