About this Item

8vo. 320 pp. Brief intimate biographies of 4 prominent English writers of the 19th century, together with selections from their works. The writers are Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, W. M. Thackeray and Douglas Jerrold and the author of the book is Jerrold?s son, Blanchard. This was initially published in England in 1872 as a series of pamphlets on ?The Best of All good Company?, a series of Days with each author. Jerrold had intended them as light introductions to each author and, except for the Dickens pamphlet, they were accompanied by a selection of the author?s works. Dickens?s publishers refused to allow reprinting of his works, but as stated in the introduction of this American edition, there was no copyright law to prevent pirating selections from Dickens?s work in this edition. The publishers freely admit to the piracy and also to removing some of the less interesting material from the English publication. Here the four ?Days with? are published together in a single volume. Mild wear at ends of spine and corners. Shaken. A few spots of foxing on one page.Else Good +. Refs. Podeschi D62 (for the single English Dickens issue of 1871), D69 (for the single Dickens American issue , publ. by Shepard and Gill, Boston, 1873). Green publisher?s cloth. Gilt titling and decoration on spine and front cover. T.e.g. Pale yellow end papers. Bookseller Inventory # 11279
