About this Item

3 volumes. First edition, first issue with the Fireside p64late and Boz on the title page. With 24 engravings by George Cruikshank. 8vo, very handsomely bound in antique three quarter green morocco over marbled boards, the spines beautifully decorated with raised bands gilt stopped and double gilt ruled, compartments elaborately gilt tooled, two compartments lettered in gilt, t.e.g. (4), 331; (4), 307; (2), 313 pp. An unusually nice set of the rare first issue, bindings in a fine state of preservation, the gilt clean and bright, the dark-green morocco still without fading. A VERY HANDSOME SET OF THE FIRST EDITION AND ISSUE OF OLIVER TWIST. This was Dickens's second novel, following quickly on the enormous success of THE PICKWICK PAPERS. It was published in volume form six months before it was completed in serial form, and Frederic Kitton states that 35 London booksellers contracted for only 528 copies. But although those London booksellers may have had their initial doubts, the book was and still is one of Dickens' most popular novels. The bindings are especially pleasing on this set and the text is unusually clean and fresh. Bookseller Inventory # 25236
