About this Item

Tall octavo, contemporary (or original publisher's) dark blue morocco gilt, all edges gilt, gilt urn in center of covers, slight wear, with binder's ticket of R. Spencer, very nice. This agrees with Sadleir's 416a. in publisher's morocco, but Sadleir gives no further details. Wolff had only the plainly bound copy, whereas this is an elegant dressing clearly aimed at the carriage trade, and has the suite of illustrations, the engraved as well as printed titles, and the engraved full length portrait of the author as the consummate dandy. Bulwer-Lytton's troubles with his wife Rosina are aproaching a critical juncture when this work was published, and one wonders if the Dedication to the notorious Countess of Blessington might have pushed Rosina over the brink. Sadleir 416a; Wolff 942 (plain copy only). First edition. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 0200
