About this Item

A very early issuance. With the authorís 40 illustrations in steel or wood engraving. 8vo, in a Bayntun-Riviere binding of full crushed black morocco, with beautiful intricate blind stamped decorations on the covers surrounded by a gilt border, and with gilt lettering and botanical tooled designs along a paneled spine between gilt-stippled raised bands, gilt inner dentelles and botanic borders on turn-ins and board edges gilt tooled, a.e.g., and with the original cloth covers and spine bound in at end. xvi, 624 + [1] illus. at end. A very fine copy in an extremely attractive fresh and attractive binding. An especially attractive copy of this important work of 19th century literature. Thackeray used the novelís Napoleonic era and its setting within a worldly society to mirror the society of his own with great success. Though prior being well published as both a writer and illustrator, largely in Punch, this was Thackerayís first novel of significance. It cemented his position within the canon of 19th century writers and still remains his most famous and popular. Bookseller Inventory # 18161
