About this Item

Illustrated by Richard Doyle. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1854-55. Original parts bound up in two volumes, full modern tan calf, with decorative gilt-panelled spine, red and green leather titling pieces, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endleaves, and all edges gilt. Pp.380, 375, with half-titles present, and with the original ads and yellow wrappers bound in at the back of each volume. Illustrated with 46 etched plates, 43 wood-engraved vignettes, and 76 wood engraved initials by Richard Doyle. A fine copy of the First Edition. Van Duzer #147; Wolff #6696a; Ray #144: '.The attention of the novel's initial readers no doubt centered on Doyle's etchings, which made Colonel Newcome almost as familiar a personage as Phiz's Mr. Pickwick or Cruikshank's Fagin, but his woodcut vignettes and above all his initial letters, in which his fancy gets full play, also have great charm.'.
