Item Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859, 1859. Octavo (214 × 135 mm). Original red half morocco for presentation, marbled boards and endpapers, gilt edges. Custom cloth folding case by James Brockman. Joints, inner hinges, and tips skilfully restored by James Brockman, title leaf evenly toned and with small areas of marginal restoration at head, fore edge, and lower outer corner, a very good copy. Engraved title and frontispiece present, but bound without plates as usual with presentation copies of this title. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title-page: "To Hon: Mrs Watson, From Charles Dickens, Fourth December, 1859." A Tale of Two Cities was published on 21 November 1859. Dickens had a few copies bound for presentation with the frontispiece and engraved title, but without the plates. Other known copies, including those presented by him to George Eliot and Charles Lever, are similarly bound and made up. The text is in first state, with p. 213 misnumbered 113. The recipient, Lavinia Watson, was the widow of the Honourable Richard Watson (1800–1852). Dickens first met them at Lausanne in 1846 and visited them often at their home, Rockingham Castle, where he performed private theatricals. They were the dedicatees of David Copperfield (1850). Mrs Watson, born Lavinia Jane Quin (1816–1888), remained a frequent correspondent and trusted confidante of Dickens throughout his life. Eckel, pp. 86–90. Bookseller Inventory # 94801

There is occasional thumbing to some corners of text page extremities and minor endpaper and inner board creasing but one of the brightest unsophisticated cloth copies I have seen.
