Second issue state lacking the "b" signature for the list of plates and the corrected page 213 pp.254. Plates by Browne. . All internal flaws as Smith. . The Cloth is same blindstamped design as Smith pictures for the primary cloth binding of Little Dorrit, bar one small alteration to bottom of spine. Spine is banded in five large sections and one small tail section the second section is gilt lettered "A Tale/of/two Cities" the fourth section "Charles Dicken" and "Chapman & Hall to bottom section". All the printing errors mentioned in Smith are present. The cloth is very bright just exhibiting a little spotting to front board and some rubbing and cloth abrasions to bottom corners bottom front board. The plates are very clean. 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.
