Item Description: Chapman & Hall 1906-1908., London, 1906. Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and elaborate tooling, blue inlay to the inner and rear panels. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exceptional complete set in near fine condition, with just a few volumes that have light cracking at the hinges. Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

Item Description: Dana Estes & Company, Boston. Complete set of Charles Dickens. Octavo, 48 volumes. Three quarters leather, top edge gilt. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine. With a signed postcard addressed and signed by Charles Dickens tipped in to The Pickwick Papers. Hand colored frontispiece to each volume. Limited to one thousand copies. In Fine condition. A beautiful set. Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens's creative genius has been praised by fellow writers--from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G. K. Chesterton--for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. Bookseller Inventory # 3203

Item Description: 1837. First Edition. DICKENS, Charles. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. London: Chapman & Hall, 1836-37. Thick octavo, early 20th-century full green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4200.First book edition, mixed first and early issue, of one of Dickens' greatest works, with 43 illustrations by Seymour and Phiz, extra-illustrated with a complete suite of 32 engraved plates, most by Thomas Onwyn (who has signed many of the plates as "Sam Weller"), handsomely bound in full morocco-gilt by Zaehnsdorf."From a literary standpoint the supremacy of this book has been". firmly established". It was written by Dickens when he was twenty-four and its publication placed the author on a solid foundation from which he never was removed". It is quite probable that only Shakespeare's Works, the Bible and perhaps the English Prayer Book, exceed "Pickwick Papers" in circulation" (Eckel, 17). "Never was a book received with more rapturous enthusiasm than that which greeted the Pickwick Papers!" (Allibone I:500). Pickwick would be the first volume in which Dickens was acknowledged as the author, rather than using his pen name, "Boz." With 43 illustrations by R. Seymour and Phiz, including frontispiece and vignette title page, and the scarce suppressed plates by Buss (at pages 69 and 74 in Volume I); plate intended for opposite page 334 has been bound opposite page 34. With six of seven first-issue points. Plates in mixed states. Originally issued in 20 parts from April 1836 to November 1837. Smith I:3. Gimbel A15. "During the initial publication of Pickwick Papers several artists sold 'extra' illustrations to accompany each number". Additionally, many later editions of Pickwick Papers contain new illustrations; other later editions contain new illustrations along with reproductions of the illustrations from the first edition". Pickwick Papers has a long and complex illustration history" (University of Washington). This copy testifies to the book's popularity among artists; the 32 extra illustrations (with 21 by Thomas Onwyn) were issued in eight monthly parts in 1837. Text and plates fine, mild toning to handsome morocco binding. A near-fine copy, very desirable extra-illustrated. Bookseller Inventory # 102695

Item Description: 1846. First Edition. DICKENS, Charles. The Cricket on the Hearth. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846. Small octavo, mid-20th century full crushed brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. $1800.First edition of Dickens' third Christmas Book, illustrated with frontispiece, vignette title page, and 12 illustrations by Leech, Doyle, Landseer and Stanfield""six of the plates engraved by Edward Dalziel, with three autograph notes signed by him laid in""in handsome morocco-gilt with original cloth bound in by Worsfold.Beginning in 1843 with A Christmas Carol, Dickens published five Christmas-themed books for the holiday season, creating a new literary genre in the process. The Cricket on the Hearth was the third in the series, and "it is said to rank second in importance as a Christmas Book" after the Carol (Eckel, 119). It is "perhaps most affecting still for its portrait of a blind girl whose father has over the years created for her a wonderfully bright and luxurious world in which she believes she lives; no one was better at such effects than Dickens" (Ackroyd, 483). Without advertisement leaves. Smith II:6. Gimbel A92. Eckel, 119-20. Six of the plates in this book were engraved by the Dalziel Brothers. Edward "was in business at first, but spent much of his spare time studying art, finally joining his brother George in London in 1839 as a wood engraver" (Houfe, 111). From 1855-75, "wood-engraving reached its zenith in the work of the Dalziel brothers". As patrons of illustrators and producers of books illustrated by teams of artists, the Dalziels attained a position of great importance" (Harthan, 205). These undated autograph notes from Edward Dalziel concern the selection of subjects for illustration and delays in production, one due to his own illness and another due to an artist's time requirements.Inoffensive light soiling, old folds, small tape repairs to autograph notes; small marginal chip to one note, not affecting text. Book lovely. Very nearly fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 90090

L&B's plan was simply to publish a one-volume edition complete with all 24 Cruikshank illustrations, as soon as possible -- but as the end of 1838 (and the publication of the three-volume edition in London) drew nigh, L&B faced a dilemma: their competitors would soon have access to the three-volume edition.~It is noteworthy that L&B had "signified their desire to differentiate themselves from the ordinary piratical reprinters of Dickens's work in America" by making modest payments to Dickens (50 pounds to Dickens, 60 to Bentley) via their agent in London; this was "not unmingled with self-interest," as it secured slightly-advance proofs unavailable to their competitors -- but they had to hurry to take advantage of this small time advantage. According to Tillotson, L&B first printed their octavo one-volume edition by the second week of December 1838 -- but then did not publish it until 2 February 1839, due to the delay in receiving and reproducing the 24 illustrations. In the third week of December 1838, L&B, with their one-volume edition printed and awaiting illustrations, decided that they must rush an un-illustrated edition through the press and into the public's hands before their competitors (namely William Colyer of New York) could get a copy of the three-volume London edition by sea -- so this two-volume edition hit the streets on 19 December 1838 -- with an apology, on the preliminary leaf, that the Cruikshank illustrations had not yet arrived. (For more detail on all of this see Kathleen Tillotson's magnificent analysis of the 1838-39 Philadelphia editions of OLIVER TWIST -- source of the above quotes.)~This edition has the error that both the last chapter in Vol I and the first chapter in Vol II are numbered XXIX -- with the improper numbering then carrying through to the end of the book. This copy has the only issue point (the preliminary ad leaf) in the first state (signed with an asterisk but no "1").~Condition is, for this cheap hurry-up production, very good. The rose cloth spines are as always faded, and the labels there are rubbed (though mostly still present); the endpapers (each front one bearing the same early signature) are cracked but present and the volumes are tight; the leaves (cheap paper) exhibit the usual amount of foxing. Smith pp 83-87; Podeschi (Yale) A33. Bookseller Inventory # 13564
