Description:

"FIELDING, Henry. The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1749. Six volumes. 12mo, contemporary full calf gilt rebacked with original spines laid down, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7800.First edition, first issue of Fielding's mock-heroic "milestone in the development of the English novel" (An English Library, 21), one of a first printing of only 2000 copies, in contemporary calf."The book is generally regarded as Fielding's greatest, and as one of the first and most influential of English novels" (Drabble, 988). The thoroughly entertaining story of how Tom, a kind-hearted, high-spirited young man, woos the morally exemplary Sophia and wins recognition from society is "one of the best-plotted novels in English… A wealth of highly diversified episode is fitted together by the hand of a master craftsman into a perfectly organized whole" (Baugh et al., 957-58). Prepublication demand for Tom Jones was so great that London booksellers immediately snapped up the first printing of 2000 copies; a second printing was completed before the official date of publication, February 28. First issue, with errata uncorrected in text; the table of contents, usually found with the errata leaf in Volume I, is here divided and bound separately into each volume, with errata leaf following the contents in Volume VI. The second printing was issued with the errors corrected, and therefore required no errata leaf. Other first-issue points: B9, B10 of Volume I are cancels; B4, B5 and N12 of Volume II are cancels; H8, H9, H10, M3 and Q11 of Volume III are cancels; N8 of Volume V is a cancel; B5 of Volume VI unsigned. Cross III:316-17. Rothschild 850. Grolier 100. Rosenbach 57:32. Lowndes, 797. Allibone, 593. Interior quite clean with only scattered light foxing; light marginal dampstaining to last few gatherings of Volume IV. Mild rubbing to spines, light age-wear to boards. A handsome, near-fine copy in contemporary binding.". Bookseller Inventory # 101807
