About this Item

A handsome nineteenth century edition retaining the illustrations from the first edition and still being from Dicken's original publisher. With 75 illustrations by Hablot Browne, G. Gray, George Cattermole and others, 32 of the illustrations are full page plates, the rest within the text. 8vo, bound in very attractive contemporary three-quarter red morocco and marbled boards, gilt lettered on the spine and with blind ruled raised bands, t.e.g. viii, 460pp. A pleasing copy in one volume, the text quite fresh and clean, the binding handsome, solid and sturdy with just a bit of light and general evidence of age or use. A HANDSOME ONE VOLUME EDITION OF DICKENS’ THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, which was originally published serially in MASTER HUMPHREY’S CLOCK and was one of Dickens’ biggest publishing sensations. The hype surrounding the conclusion of the series was unprecedented; Dickens fans were reported to storm the piers of New York City, shouting to arriving sailors, who may have read the last installment in England prior to the American release, "Is Little Nell alive?".
