About this Item

Original terra cotta cloth. Complete set. Early printing of the First American edition with gilt portrait of Dickens on front covers. Three volumes Vol. I 1812-1842, 1872; Vol. II 1842-1852, 1873; Vol. III 1852-1870, Gilt spine lettering slightly dulled and spines faded to light brown as per usual with this edition. Illustrated with steel engraved plates. A very nice set of this classic Dickens nineteenth century biography, as much a memoir of John Forster, as some critics argue, as it is an exposition of the life of "the inimitable Boz". Volume II contains publisher's ads appended at rear. No name, no book-plate, no writing or marking, etc. Incidental shelfwear to some boards. A truly well preserved set. Scarce. Very good+. Podechi H-188. Bookseller Inventory # 004833

Store Description

We are a generalist bookseller who has been selling online since 2003. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best books at the best prices. As a used and antiquarian seller all of our copies are unique and our stock is limited by our ability to source new material from a variety of venues. We strive to describe our books as accurately as possible and have embarked on a policy of adding at least one photograph for each new listing added. Older entries in our database may not include a picture, if this is so please request one and we will gladly send it to you via email.
