Item Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859., 1859. "It Was The Best Of Times, It Was The Worst Of TimesIt Was The Age Of Wisdom, It Was The Age Of Foolishness "First Issue of A Tale of Two Cities in the Original Red ClothDICKENS, 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, with genuine title-page. Octavo (7/8 x 5 1/2 in; 224 x 139 mm). [i-vii] viii,[ix (list of plates), [x, blank], [1] 2-254, [ix-x] pp. Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz'], each remarkably fine impressions. All eight of Smith's internal flaws necessary for the first issue present, including page 213 misnumbered 113. Bound without the 32pp catalogue at rear that Smith notes as "bound in [only] some copies".Publisherís primary binding of deep red morocco-grain cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt, pale yellow endpapers. Slight surface loss to top left hand corner of front paste-down most probably due to the removal of a booksellers ticket. Short one-half inch split to cloth at top of upper joint. Inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, minimal rubbing to cloth extremities, otherwise a superb copy, the text and plates remarkably clean with virtually no foxing. Housed in a full dark green morocco solander case with cloth chemise.Smith notes that "the plates were not duplicated and consequently most copies have poor impressions because of the large printings made from the one set of plates," hence the copy under notice is most unusual.This late novel is one of Dicken's scarcest and even scarcer in the original red cloth.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. Set in London and Paris, before and during the French Revolution, Dickens great novel A Tale of Two Cities depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events. Smith I, 13. Bookseller Inventory # 03226

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.

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

The Works of Charles Dickens (Including: Bleak: Dickens, Charles

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. A 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. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form marks 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 quite rare. This title also marks the authorís final collaboration with Phiz, Dickensís most evocative and most sympathetic illustrator. Smith I, 13. Bookseller Inventory # 00734

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.

Octavo, 19th-century three-quarter green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $8800.First edition, first issue, bound from parts, of DickensâÄô second historical novel and one of his most enduring worksâÄ"a powerful tale of self-sacrifice and rebirth against the backdrop of the French Revolution, handsomely bound.âÄúDickens had always admired CarlyleâÄôs History of the French Revolution, and asked him to recommend suitable books from which he could research the period; in reply Carlyle sent him a âÄėcartloadâÄô of volumesâĦ So great was [DickensâÄô] enthusiasm for the story that it had indeed âÄėtaken in possessionâÄô of himâĦ The force of the novel springs from its exploration of darkness and death but its beauty derives from DickensâÄô real sense of transcendence, from his ability to see the sweep of destinyâÄĚ (Ackroyd, 858). The last of DickensâÄô books to be illustrated by H.K. Browne (âÄúPhizâÄĚ), with 16 engraved plates by him. âÄúBrowne, for 23 years responsible for all the etchings which had so successfully embellished these [DickensâÄô] books, produced his last drawings for the present workâĦ Bradbury and Evans, the printers of all and publishers of five of DickensâÄô works as issued in monthly parts, had ceased to act in this dual capacity after completion of Little DorritâĦ [resulting] in the return of Chapman and Hall as publishers of this and all succeeding worksâÄĚ (Hatton & Cleaver, 333). First issue, with page 213 misnumbered as 113 (corrected in ink by hand in this copy) and other called-for first-issue points.

Item Description: London: Chapman & Hall, 1859. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Browne, Hablot Knight (illustrator). 1st Edition. Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne. First edition, first issue, with page 213 incorrectly numbered, signature "b" present on the List of Plates (ix), and all other first issue points called for by Smith. Beautifully bound in 19th century three-quarter dark green morocco and green boards, with five raised bands to the spine, decorated and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, pale pink marbled endpapers. Very good or better, with light toning to the spine, some rubbing to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, spine very lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, spotting to the endpapers, frontispiece and vignette title page, some light and scattered spotting to the otherwise clean pages, bright plates lacking the usual toning. Overall, a handsome copy. Smith I 13. As Hatton and Cleaver note in their bibliography, A Tale of Two Cities has "practically no 'points' sufficiently outstanding to distinguish the earlier printings." However, both H&C and Smith agree that copies with the misprint on page 213 corrected and lacking the signature "b" on page ix are decidedly second printings. This copy does indeed have these points in the earliest state. A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens' most popular novels and begins with the iconic opening line "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." It tells the intertwined stories of several families in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution of 1788-1789; in his preface, Dickens explains his choice of the Revolution as a backdrop to his tale: "it has been one of my hopes to add something to the popular and picturesque means of understanding that terrible time." Prior to the publication of this first book edition, A Tale of Two Cities was published in Dickens' weekly journal All the Year Round from April-November 1859 and issued in eight monthly parts from June-December 1859. Notably, A Tale of Two Cities was the final collaboration between Dickens and his popular illustrator H. K. Browne (Phiz), whose collaboration spanned nearly a quarter of a century and produced ten major novels. Bookseller Inventory # CD084

Item Description: 1859. [complete in Harper's Weekly] In Three Books - Splendidly Illustrated. In: Harper's Weekly. A Journal of Civilization. New York: Harper & Brothers, May 7 - December 3, 1859. All of the weekly issues for 1859, bound up into one volume bound in three-quarter brown calf and marbled boards. First Appearance in America of one of Dickens's best-known tales. In England, this tale appeared weekly in All The Year Round between the end of April and the end of November 1859, and also in eight-in-seven monthly parts from June through December of the same year; the book edition was issued there on 21 November. In the United States, Harper & Brothers paid for the right to issue this novel in Harper's Weekly, where it did appear serially in 31 issues from May 7th through December 3rd 1859; John McLenan prepared 31 chapter vignettes plus 33 other illustrations for this serialization. (T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia in turn bought the illustrations and, by arrangement with Harper's, published A TALE OF TWO CITIES in book form, in numerous formats, upon the end of serialization -- about two weeks after the U.K. book edition.)~This 16-inch-tall volume includes all of the weekly issues for 1859, beginning with that of January 1 and ending with that of December 31. In addition to A TALE OF TWO CITIES, the volume includes the beginning of Wilkie Collins's THE WOMAN IN WHITE (which immediately followed A TALE OF TWO CITIES in All The Year Round). It also includes many other fascinating articles and illustrations of the day, just two years before the commencement of the American Civil War. (For example, there are numerous stirring illustrations from battles of the Second Italian War of Independence, a.k.a. the Franco-Austrian war, then raging -- and in the final issue of the year, there is a great double-page illustration of the the new U.S. Senate chamber in session.) Also included are numerous illustrations by Winslow Homer -- although of course these issues do not include his upcoming wartime ones.~These issues are bound in recent three-quarter dark-brown calf, with much-earlier marbled boards. Condition is near-fine (very minor external wear, a few leaves torn or with pieces lacking but not affecting A TALE OF TWO CITIES). Bookseller Inventory # 12077
