About this Item

First Edition. Pages 48 pp.+ ads.8vo. Blue paper wraps. Extra set of blue covers with ads on all 4 sides included. First Edition. Oppenlander,p.150. VanderPoel B452. Patten, D. & Publ., p. 301 As in some other Extra Christmas Numbers for "All the Year Round," Dickens wrote only parts of the whole. He laid a heavy hand to the editing of contributions by others, however, making the stories seamless to most readers. For this story in Volume XII of ATYR, Dickens wrote Parts I and VII, Charles Allston Collins, Dickens son-in-law, wrote Part II. The others were by Rosa Mulholland (Part III), Henry T.Spicer (Part IV), Amelia Ann Blandford Edwards (Part V), and Hesba Stretton (Part VI). A sip is tipped in at front announcing Volume the First of"Our Mutual Friend" to be published on January 20, [1865]. Mrs Lirriper had appeared at Christmas, 1863 in"Mrs. Lirriper's Lodgings," which was a very popular Christmas number because of its comic elements. Each of "Mrs. Lirriper" issues sold 200,000 copies or more, occasioning enthusiastic letters from Dickens to Wilkie Collins about her and his expectations for her. This was only the second Extra Christmas Number to appear in blue wrappers. Covers detached and front cover separated at hinge. Else, Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 9247
