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

Book 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).

Book Description: London: Chapman & Hall, 1874., 1874. Chapman and Hall’s Illustrated Library Edition of the Works of Charles DickensDICKENS, Charles. [Works of Charles Dickens]. London: Chapman & Hall, [n.d., 1874]-[1891].Reprint of the Illustrated Library Edition. Thirty octavo volumes (8 11/16 x 5 1/2 inches; 221 x 141 mm.). Illustrated with plates after the originals by "Phiz" (Hablot Knight Browne), George Cruikshank, Frederick Walker, Edwin Landseer, Daniel Maclise, John Leech, Marcus Stone, George Cattermole, and Luke Fildes. Late nineteenth-century full tan polished calf by Tout (stamp-signed on the verso of the front free endpaper). Covers with gilt triple fillet border with gilt corner ornaments, spines elaborately tooled in gilt in compartments with five gilt-dotted raised bands and red and green morocco gilt lettering labels, board edges with gilt-dotted rule, turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Minor rubbing to extremities, headcaps on Volumes IX, X, and XXI expertly repaired. Small bookseller’s ticket on rear pastedown of each volume. A near fine set. Partially unopened."This the best edition of my books is, of right, inscribed to my dear friend John Forster, biographer of Oliver Goldsmith, in affectionate acknowledgment of his counsel, sympathy, and faithful friendship during my whole literary life" (dedication leaf in Volume I of The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club)."The Library Edition came about largely because of the suggestion of Forster that while Dickens's works were available in volumes in the Cheap Edition and in reprints of the serial parts, there was no high-quality edition that would appeal to the wealthy. Dickens eventually came round to the idea that an elegant edition could raise the stature of his writings. He faced a complication, in that the rights to the works were divided between Chapman and Hall and Bradbury and Evans. Consequently, the volumes contained the imprints of both publishers. With a dedication to Forster, the Library Edition appeared in 22 volumes in 1858-9 at 7s 6d per volume. Titles included Pickwick, Nickleby, Chuzzlewit, Old Curiosity Shop, Reprinted Pieces, Barnaby Rudge, Hard Times, Sketches by Boz, Oliver Twist, Dombey, Copperfield, Pictures from Italy, Bleak House, Little Dorrit, and Christmas Books. The only illustrations were the frontispieces. Between 1861 and 1874 this edition was reissued in 30 volumes with the addition of Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend, The Uncommercial Traveller, A Child’s History of England, Christmas Stories, and Drood. The reissue contained illustrations—the frontispieces plus additional illustrations by artists such as Marcus Stone, John Leech, and Clarkson Stanfield—and came to be known as the Illustrated Library Edition Recognizing the continuing potential for sales of Dickens's works, Chapman and Hall in 1873 published a prospectus for the Second Illustrated Library Edition, containing, they contended, all the works the novelist wished to preserve. Calling it the first well-printed issue, with specially cast type and better paper than that used in previous editions, this set was published in 30 volumes between 1873 and 1876 and sold at £15 for the set, a high price for the time" (Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens, pp. 205-206).

Book Description: Chapman and Hall, London, 1890. Hardcover. 210 x 140 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/2"). 18 volumes. EXCELLENT CRIMSON HIGHLY POLISHED HALF CALF, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, spines gilt in compartments formed by plain and decorative rules and with swirling volute cornerpieces and small floral tools enclosing a single blossom centerpiece, each spine with two dark blue labels, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. With 559 full-page illustrations throughout after Cruikshank, "Phiz," and others. Spines faintly sunned to a pleasing and uniform rose, but A VERY ATTRACTIVELY BOUND SET IN FINE CONDITION, the leather especially bright and with only the most trivial signs of wear, and the text very clean, fresh, and smooth. Issued by Chapman and Hall, the large publisher responsible for a number of Dickens' most important novels, this set of the complete works is both handsome and remarkably well preserved. John Forster (1812-76) wrote for and edited periodicals before he became famous with the printing of this biography, a work he rewrote 12 times before finally submitting it for publication. As a result of his success with this book, Forster was named secretary to the commissioners of lunacy, a position more attractive than it might seem to be, as it commanded a salary sufficient to allow him to give up editing and devote the rest of his life to literature according to his own interests. This is his best known work. Bookseller Inventory # ST11462a-039

Book Description: Chapman & Hall, London, 1881. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. De Luxe Edition. 4to (21 x 28cm). Perhaps the finest production of 'The Works of Charles Dickens' ever published; thirty substantial 4to (strictly speaking Royal 8vo) volumes. This set is numbered 586 of 1,000 copies printed. Over 700 mounted plates on India paper, restrikes of the original plates by Cruikshank, Stone, Phiz et al, some of which are hand-coloured; facsimiles of the original blue printed wrappers also bound in. Bound in contemporary half red morocco with gilt lettering to the spines within a decoratively ruled box. Top edge gilt, other edges uncut, marbled endpapers. Bindings somewhat plain, generally very good with some general wear and some rubbing to joints and extremities, spines a little darkened, gilt dulled to a few volumes. Contents clean and tight, slightly spotting to a few of the first and last few pages, some of the plates are spotted whilst many are unmarked - presumably dependent on the acidity of the paper originally used. A sumptuous set. 4to (21 x 28cm). Bookseller Inventory # 023252
