VGC.Chapman & Hall, London ,1860's-1870's.Illustrated Library Edition of the Works of Charles Dickens in complete 26 octavo volumes(I to XXVI).This set was reissued between 1861 and 1874 with illustrations and was called the Illustrated Library Edition.Hardbacks(marbled front and back covers, gilt lettering to the spine) bound in mainly contemporary half leather(four volumes are in more recent half leather, small nicks and dents on the edges of the covers and spines) in VGC.

The front cover of volume XII has come loose but is repairable. Illustrations by George Cruikshank, H. K. Browne.The collection is in VGC for its age with light shelf wear. 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

Item Description: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. London Chapman and Hall, 1859. Beautiful First edition, First Issue in the Original Red Cloth DICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. First edition, first issue in the primary binding. Octavo 8 3/4 x 5 9/16 inches; 222 x 141 mm. [i-vii] viii [ix-x], [1] 2-254; Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz']. All eight of Smith's internal flaws necessary for the first issue present, including page 213 misnumbered 113. Publisherís primary binding of deep red sand-grain cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Edges uncut. Cloth on boards is still a rich red. Housed in a full leather decorated red morocco clamshell case. An excellent copy. A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickensís periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form mark Dickensís 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 now quite rare. This title also marks the authorís final collaboration with Phiz, Dickensís most evocative and most sympathetic illustrator. Smith I, 13. Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 333-342.

Item Description: Chapman & Hall 1906-1908., London, 1906. Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and tooling, blue inlay. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exquisite set in near fine condition. Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

Item Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859., 1859. True First EditionA Spectacular Copy In Original Green Cloth With 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'].Publisherís 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 Ďgreení cloth of A Tale of Two Cities that we have ever seen, and although it is the Ďsecondary bindingí, itís superlative condition really does justify itís 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 Dickensís periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859.

Item Description: Chapman and Hall, London. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST BOOK EDITION, FIRST STATE, IN RARE ORIGINAL CLOTH of Dickens's historical masterpiece. An exceptional unrestored copy. "A Tale of Two Cities(serialized from 30 April to 26 November 1859)?was inspired by the story of the self-sacrificing lover Richard Wardour (Dickens's role) inThe Frozen Deep. In this novel, the second half of which takes place during the French Revolution, Dickens set himself the task, he told Forster, 'of makinga picturesque story, rising in every chapter with characters true to nature, but whom the story itself should express, more than they should express themselves, by dialogue', glossed by Forster as meaning that Dickens would be relying 'less upon character than upon incident' (Forster, 730, 731). In its tightly organized and highly romantic melodrama and the near-absence of typical 'Dickensian' humour and humorous characters,A Tale of Two Citiescertainly stands apart from all his other novels, although-as in his earlier historical novel-one of the great set pieces of the book is the anarchic destruction of a prison, an event to which Dickens's imagination responded with powerful ambiguity" (Dictionary of National Biography). Complete with sixteen plates (including frontispiece and vignette title) by Phiz, and 32-page publisher's catalog. First state: with p.213 misnumbered 113, "affetcionately" on p.134 (line 12), et al. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth (first binding); early custom box. With royal bookplate of the Earl of Normanton on front pastedown and neat early signature (dated 1874) on front free endpaper. First gathering a little loose (as often), toning to spine and bottom edge of front board. Text and plates extremely clean. A bright, fresh copy in the rare original red cloth.

Item 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

Half green morocco over marbled boards, spines gilt with red floral inlays, top edges gilt. A very attractive Dickens set. Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy.
