Item Description: London Chapman and Hall, 1861. The Rare First Issue of "Great Expectations" in the Original Cloth DICKENS, Charles. Great Expectations. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. First edition in book form, first issue. Three octavo volumes. [4], 344; [2], 351, [1, printer’s imprint]; [2], 344 pp. plus 32 pp. advertisements, dated May, 1861. With the first issue title-pages and with all the internal flaws for the first issue called for by Smith, except page 173 in volume III has an apostrophe in "there's." There are a four more points however that Smith notes which do not occur in every copy. Our set does not have the two points in Volume III that Smith notes only appeared in Sadleir’s copy ("3" missing in page number on p. 103, and first "i" missing in "inflexible" on p. 193, four lines up). Additionally, our set has a period after the headline on page 236 in volume III and also a dot over the 'i" on page 278, volume II. Both of these points Smith notes appear in most copies, but not all. Original moderate violet wavy-grain cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spines ruled in blind and decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Spines a bit sunned and extremities of boards and spines lightly rubbed. Occasional signature slightly sprung. Front inner hinge of volume III restored, others with hairline cracks. Overall, an excellent copy that shows very well. Housed together in a blue morocco pull-off case. One of only two Dickens novels never issued in monthly parts—the typical method since Pickwick—Great Expectations is also one of only two of his novels whose first editions weren’t illustrated (in both cases, Hard Times is the other). Great Expectations first appeared in England in the pages of Dickens’s popular magazine, All the Year Round, beginning on December 1, 1860 (though two American magazines, Harper’s Weekly and the American All the Year Round began serializing it slightly earlier, technically jeopardizing Dickens’s British copyright). "The rarity of the first issue of Great Expectations has been attributed to the probable small binding-up of copies with the first titlepage, coupled with the fact (according to C.P. Johnson, Hints to Collectors, p. 33, and others later) that ‘the first edition was almost entirely taken up by the libraries.’ Patten, pp. 290-92, states that 1,000 copies of the first issue and 750 of the second were printed and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second (1400) copies in all) were purchased by Mudie’s Select Library" (Smith I, p. 104, note 5). Smith I, 14. Eckel, pp. 91-93. Gimbel A146. HBS 67764. $37,500. Bookseller Inventory # 67764

Item Description: John Macrone 1837, 1836. First editions. Three volumes. The first series in original dark green cloth with gilt titles on the spine, the second series in peach coloured cloth with dark brown painted title area lettered in gilt to the spine. Yellow coated end papers. The second series in Sadleir's earlier state, with the frontispiece bound in the text and 'Vol III' still present on each of the plates. The first series in fine condition, crisp and bright, with just a trace of wear to one corner at the base of the spine of volume I and to the very tips of the outer corners. Internally, exceptionally fresh and clean with no browning to text or plates and all hinges in perfect condition. The second series has been neatly rebacked, as often, preserving much of the original spine, but is otherwise clean and crisp and is also internally very fresh. Overall an exceptionally well preserved set of Dickens's rare first work. Housed in old quarter leather chemises and slipcases. Twenty-six steel engraved plates by George Cruikshank (sixteen in the first series and ten in the second). Dickens's career as a writer of fiction began in 1833, when as a political journalist, he wrote a series of 'sketches' or observations on society, under the pen name of Boz, to be published in The Monthly Magazine. In 1835, acquaintance and young publisher John Macrone approached Dickens with the idea of publishing his stories in book form, offering £100 for the copyright. As Dickens's income at the time was £382 a year, this was a princely sum, and he approached the project with some enthusiasm, rewriting a number of the previously published stories and adding some new ones, notably 'A Visit to Newgate' and 'The Black Veil'. A further feather in the caps of both author and publisher was securing the services of the much better known George Cruikshank to illustrate the book, which instigated a relationship that was to be mutually fruitful throughout much of Dickens's and Cruikshank's careers. Sketches by Boz was published in 1836, to glowing reviews, helped in no small way by Dickens's own literary and journalistic contacts, and sold smartly, so that a second edition was published within the year, followed by a third in the following year. The book was the catalyst to Dickens's meteoric rise to literary fame that would in due course lead to him being regarded as the foremost writer of the Victorian age. It is likely that 'Sketches' was originally conceived as a three volume work, but that Dickens wanted to include more material than would comfortably fit into a uniform third volume, so it was decided to issue two volumes followed by a separate 'second series' some ten months later. Exact publication numbers are not known, but Macrone was a small establishment, so it is unlikely that each edition consisted of more that a couple of thousand copies. Sadleir ranked them first and second in his list of comparative scarcities for Dickens in original cloth and nice copies are now very infrequently encountered. Smith 1&2; Sadleir 699.

Item Description: S. H Goetzel & Co., J. Y. Thompson, Printer, Mobile, 1863. 388 pp. 7-3/4" x 5-1/8" A rare Confederate imprint of Dickens? classic bildungsroman, published during the height of the Civil War by S.H. Goetzel & Co. in Mobile, Alabama, three years after the novel?s serial appearance in All the Year Round and the subsequent Chapman and Hall publication were greeted with thunderous acclaim. Goetzel was an Austrian-born publisher, bookseller, and sometime stationer, who seems to have done everything he could to stay in business despite the constant threat of war and the shortages of materials. A die-hard Confederate during the war, who lobbied fiercely to become the publisher of Confederate textbooks (and to create a standardized version of such, since none existed), Goetzel later became something of a book scout for the Boston Athenaeum after the war ended, helping to round up Confederate imprints as part of their effort to consolidate what Charles H. Poole termed ?material for an impartial history?; Poole also noted that ?[s]ome of the most violent publications of the war were printed here [in Mobile], and a whole edition of 2000 copies of ?Confederate? a savage pamphlet, was consigned to the flames by Mr. G. on the capture of the city.?As was not uncommon at the time, due to the scarcity of paper, wallpaper was repurposed for this edition?s wrappers; unlike many other such publications (and most of Goetzel?s), however, the wallpaper in this case was intentionally employed as a design element, with the decorative side outward and printed upon, rather than being mere backing to a plain-fronted wrapper. (Baker, Cathleen A., ?The Enterprising S. H. Goetzel: Antebellum and Civil War Publisher in Mobile, Alabama.? The Legacy Press, 2013)Very scarce on the market: ABPC shows no copies at auction these past 30+ years. Binding - Fine. Text Block - About VG (front wrapper with restoration/browning & spotting to text/the occasional paper defect). Modern blue half-morocco leather binding with marbled paper boards. Original front wrapper, printed on wall-paper, bound-in 1st Confederate edition (Parrish & Willingham 6301). Not in Gimbel, nor VanderPoel. Bookseller Inventory # 34409

A collectable and scarce early edition of The Works of Charles Dickens. Please note: This is heavy set(approx 22 Kg). Books sizes: 7.9 x 4.9 inches. This is another paragraph The books are as follows: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club ( 2 volumes, no date given but probably 1867), Nicholas Nickleby(2 volumes, dated 1869), Martin Chuzzlewit(2 volumes, dated 1969), Old Curiosity Shop & Reprinted Pieces(2 volumes), Barnaby Rudge(2 volumes including Hard Times), Sketches by Boz,Oliver Twist(dated 1868), David Copperfield(2 volumes,dated 1870), Pictures from Italy, Bleak House( 2 volumes,dated 1867), Little Dorrit( 2 volumes, dated 1862 & 1867), Christmas Books(dated 1868), Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations( dated 1866), Our Mutual Friend(2 volumes, dated 1869), Dombey and Son(2 volumes, dated 1868).The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club includes Charles Dicken's preface(in his preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens strenuously denied any specific input, writing that Mr Seymour never originated or suggested an incident, a phrase, or a word, to be found in the book.). Also, on the second page of the The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club volume I, it is printed: The Best Edition of my Books Is, Of Right, Inscribed to my Dear Friend John Forster, Biographer of Oliver Goldsmith. Many Patient Hours he has Devoted to the Correction of the Proof Sheets of the Original Editions; And in Affectionate Acknowledgement of His Councel, Sympathy, And Faithful Friendship During My Whole Literary Life. This is another paragraph Later Editions: Upon completion of serialization the works were issued as complete novels in one to three volumes with original, and in some instances, additional illustrations. Starting in 1847 the older novels were reissued in what was called the Cheap Edition, these were published in weekly and monthly parts, and then as complete novels. Eventually all of Dickens' novels were reissued in the Cheap Edition. The concept of the Cheap Edition was similar to today's practice of reissuing hardback novels as more affordable paperbacks. Other editions published during Dickens lifetime include the Library Edition: a high quality set published without illustrations in 1858/59. This set was reissued between 1861 and 1874 with illustrations and was called the Illustrated Library Edition. In 1867 the Charles Dickens Edition was released. This edition featured new prefaces, written by Dickens, who also made minor corrections to the text. Chapman and Hall produced the Peoples Edition in 1865-1867, these were inexpensive monthly installments of the novels aimed at travelers in the very popular bookstalls popping up in railway stations all over Britain. Dickens' works were also published in America, sometimes simultaneously with the British edition and often with little or no compensation to the author or his publishers due to the lack of an international copyright law. Dickens campaigned unsuccessfully for international copyright du. Bookseller Inventory # 6097

Item Description: Bradbury & Evans, London, 1850. Wraps. H. K. Browne (illustrator). First edition in original monthly parts. This is the complete first, serialized edition of David Copperfield, housed in a full morocco case with nested cloth chemise. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-1870) was an English writer and social critic, widely viewed to be the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. David Copperfield, published at the height of Dickens’ celebrity, was considered to be largely autobiographical. "It is Dickens's first first-person novel (David as narrator calls it ‘my written memory’) and in it he draws, much more directly than hitherto, on events and people from his own personal life in ‘a very complicated interweaving of truth and fiction’" (ODNB) Dickens called David Copperfield a "favourite child" and wrote of it "Of all my books, I like this the best." David Copperfield was originally serialized between May 1849 and November 1850 in 20 numbers bound in 19 monthly parts, the last two (19 & 20) being issued as a double number. Design for the green wrappers and forty plates illustrating this first serialized edition was by the English artist and illustrator Hablot Knight Browne (1815-1882), known by the pen name "Phiz." After illustrating Dickens’ first serial fiction, Pickwick Papers (1836-37), "For the next twenty-three years Browne was Dickens’ foremost illustrator and first graphic interpreter." (ODNB) Reprints were issued in wrappers without any advertisements. All 19 parts in this set have been carefully collated to confirm the presence of all plates by H. K. Browne, as well as all advertisements specified by Hatton and Cleaver (pp.253-272), including the complex folding insert for "Letts’s Diaries for 1850" with sample leaves in Part VIII. In the final installment (Parts 19 and 20) we also find an additional advertisement not specified in Hatton and Cleaver. This is an 8-page leaflet between the front wrapper verso and the facing "Copperfield Advertiser" for The Architectural Antiquities of Athens ("This Day is published, in Imperial Quarto, price One Shilling, to be continued Fortnightly, No. 1 "). All original wrappers are intact, with a partial vertical split to the spine of Part 1. We note the same previous owner name inked in the upper blank margin of the front wrapper of 14 parts - Numbers III, VI, VIII-XI, and XIII-XX. The set is housed in a red cloth chemise nested within a two-piece full red morocco box with rounded spine, raised bands, gilt rule spine compartments, and double gilt rule borders on the covers. The morocco box is well crafted, showing some venerable age consonant with the contents it has well protected. We note light overall scuffing to the box with some darkening of the top and spine, and with the nested red cloth chemise split at some of the folds. Bookseller Inventory # 003844

Item Description: Chapman & Hall, London, 1891. One volume bound into 2: xx, 160; [161] - 432 pp (including Index). Tipped in on fly leaf of Vol I, a 12-page booklet titled "An Interesting Dickens Collection", of which only 100 copies were printed on June 9th, 1887. Holograph title page in V. 2 facing an engraved frontispiece portrait of a young Charles Dickens. Color frontispiece. Published with 100+ illustrations by Kitton, et al. Letter facsimiles. This 1/20 limited copy with 5 additional inserted plates & facsimiles. Also, extra-illustrated for presentation, including 130+ additional plates, many of them india proofs, along with steel plate engravings & etchings [16 hand-colored, 3 in sepia tone], some folding. Additionally, inserted on mounts are 7 ALs letters [see below], as well as a signed CDV of Rev. Dr. Wordsworth, Bishop of Lincoln. 8vo. About 20 years after the death of Dickens, the author and his friend & fellow Dickensian, Mr. F. G. Kitton, decided to find and visit the real-life settings for the scenes in Dickens's novels and stories. Following their trip, Chapman & Hall published this limited edition in 20 copies with more than a hundred in-text illustrations showing these venues, with five extra illustrations including two matte collodion portrait photographs of the author and Mr. Kitton. Our copy is additionally extra adorned with 7 authograph letters by George Augustus Sala (2), Douglas Jerrold (3), George Hogarth (4), Dante G. Rossetti (5) (referring to Mr. Swinburne's affairs), Charles Roach Smith (6), Mark Lemon (7), and John Ruskin (8); and also includes an authograph and signed carte de visite by Rev. Dr. Wordsworth (9), bishop of Lincoln. (1) The Guild of Women-Binders was founded by Frank Karslake (who also founded The Hampstead Bindery) in 1898. It operated until 1904 as a loosely-knit federation of women binders from such groups as the Edinburgh Social Union, the Kirkby Lonsdale Handicraft Class, the Chiswick Art Workers' Guild, and Miss Bassett's Leighton Buzzard Handicraft Class for crippled girls, among others. Some of the more outstanding women binders represented by the Guild included Miss Constance Karslake, Miss Edith de Rheims, Florence de Rheims, Miss Helen Schofield, Mrs. Frances Knight, Mrs. Macdonald, Miss Lilian Overton, Miss Gaskell and Miss Edwards. The Guild, together with its counterpart, The Hampstead Bindery, published "The Bookbindings of To-morrow" in 1902, and held both exhibitions and sales of their bindings at Sotheby's. (2) George Augustus Sala was a renown British journalist. In 1851 Charles Dickens accepted his article, "The Key of the Street," for his journal, Household Words. This was the first of many articles that Dickens published over the next few years. In April, 1856, Dickens sent Sala to Russia as the journal's special correspondent. Sala also contributed to the author's next venture, "All the Year Round." (3) Douglas William Jerrold was an English dramatist and writer. He founded and edited for some time, with indifferent success, the Illuminated Magazine, Jerrold's Shilling Magazine, and Douglas Jerrold's Weekly Newspaper; and under his editorship Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper rose from almost nonentity to a circulation of 582,000. The history of his later years is little more than a catalogue of his literary productions, interrupted now and again by brief visits to the Continent or to the country. Douglas Jerrold died at his house, Kilburn Priory, in London on the 8 June 1857 and was buried at West Norwood Cemetery, where Charles Dickens was a pall-bearer. Dickens gave a public reading to raise money for Jerrold's widow. (4) George Hogarth was a Scottish newspaper editor, music critic, and musicologist. He authored several books on opera and Victorian musical life in addition to contributing articles to various publications. From 1846?1866 he worked as a music critic for The Daily News, a paper which was founded by Charles Dickens. He had previously met Dickens in 1834 while they were both working for the Morning.

Item Description: London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846-48, 1846. First edition, parts issue. 20 parts in 19, as issued, 8vo, original pictorial blue wrappers. 40 plates. ? A fine set of Dombey and Son in original parts, completely unsophisticated, as evidenced by the ink signature on each front wrapper of a contemporary reader, Stephen Blair. Dickens novels in parts with the evidence of the contemporary ownership on each wrapper are rare, and such provenance is virtually the only way to establish that a set has not been sophisticated, "married" or "made up.". Plates foxed - as seems inevitable - some minor paper repairs to the corners of a few spines; a few wrappers slightly soiled and smudged; overall in very nice condition, as issued. Hatton & Cleaver, pages 227-250. This set agrees with Hatton and Cleaver's description, except that in part 11 there is no ad for Letts & Son, and the ad for Kaye's Pills in part 12 varies slightly from the one described by Hatton & Cleaver. Two of the three misprints noted by Hatton & Cleaver are present: part 11, page 324, "Capitan" for "Captain"; part 14, page 426, "if" is not present; on page 431, the page number is present (in Hatton & Cleaver's earliest issue the number is omitted).

"To own Gadshill Place was one of the earliest ambitions of Charles Dickens. As a very small boy he would come out here from his home in Ordnance Terrace, Chatham, and would sit for hours by the wayside conjuring up visions of Falstaff and his gallants and brooding over the house he loved so much.About 1855 Dickens heard unexpectedly that the darling of his boyhood was in the market. His assistant editor, Mr. W.H. Willis, negotiated for it, and it was finally acquired in March, 1856, the cheque for it being written on a Friday. As Dickens remarked about this time, all important events happened to him on a Friday." (From Page 2-3 of the 1923 sale catalogue). Gimbel. Hatton and Cleaver, Smith, Dickens, HBS 66340. $6,000.
