About this Item: London: Chapman and Hall, 1861, 1861. 3 volumes, octavo (183 x 117 mm). Early 20th-century polished tan calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, red and green morocco labels, place and date on red label at foot, sides ruled in gilt with a French fillet with ornaments at corners, gilt inner dentelles, gold vein marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Joints of vol. II starting, a few minor blemishes internally, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, published on 6 July 1861, one of 1,000 copies thus. The first impression of Great Expectations is a famously rare book. Robert L. Patten, Charles Dickens and His Publishers (Clarendon 1978) states that 1,000 copies of the first impression and 750 of the second were printed and that probably most of the first and more than half of the second (1,400 copies in all) were published by Mudie's Select Library where, as circulating library copies, they inevitably suffered a high rate of attrition. The first edition was divided into five impressions, with distinct title pages labelling them as five editions. The modern bibliographical authority is generally agreed to be the table given in Appendix D to the Clarendon edition, 1993, in which Margaret Cardwell agrees with the traditional conclusion that the same setting of type was used for all five impressions: "there is no warrant for treating the five impressions as distinct editions" (p. 491). However, she deduces that the impressions were sequential and that minor corrections and gradual deterioration of type can be shown across the five impressions. This copy has Cardwell's points for the first impression throughout. Smith I.14. Seller Inventory # 130497

About this Item: Chapman and Hall, London, 1861. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing, fifth issue. Three volumes, including the publisher's catalog dated August 1861 at the rear of Volume III. Bound in the ORIGINAL publisher's ribbed purple cloth binding, with ruling and decorations in blind to boards, lettering and decorations in gilt to spine. Each volume with bright boards, toning to the spines, wear to the extremities, some light rubbing across. Volume I, with spine cracked at front hinge, former owner's signature to the dedication page. Volumes II and III each starting at front hinges, former owner's signature to the title pages. Each volume with otherwise intact spines and extremely bright and clean interiors. This copy has the majority of the first issue points, with only a few of the corrections that were made after the first issue. Overall, a clean and attractive set, extremely rare in the unsophisticated publisher's cloth. Smith I, 14. Great Expectations was originally published serially in All the Year Round, the author's literary magazine, in thirty-six weekly issues from December 1860-August 1861. It is one of Dickens' two novels that was not illustrated in the first book edition, the other being Hard Times. The first issue of the first edition, published on July 6, 1861, was followed by four subsequent issues of the same edition, published on August 5, August 17, September 21, and October 30 of the same year. Smith notes that "These first five issues were probably printed at a single impression and published with altered title pages to imply and encourage a rapid sale In all five issues, the same misprints persist." Thus, the first five issues are essentially the same first edition with varying title pages, printed simultaneously and issued in successive intervals. While some of the first issue's misprints were fixed, the corrections were not all-encompassing, yielding a variety of misprints and corrections in the first issues. For example, this volume contains some of the later issue corrections, but includes an earlier catalog that was also published in earlier issues. The first issue, which included a print run of 1,000 copies was "almost entirely taken up by the libraries," leaving only a few hundred copies for private ownership and increasing the rarity of a privately-owned later issue of the first printing. Great Expectations is Dickens' thirteenth novel. Like his 1850 novel David Copperfield, it is a bildungsroman that follows the protagonist's life from childhood to adulthood and is written entirely in the first-person. Great Expectations tells the story of a young orphan boy named Pip and his "great expectations" of becoming a gentleman and receiving his benefactor's wealth and property. A classic Victorian novel, Great Expectations features many of Dickens' recurring themes, including orphans, prison life, and Victorian society. Overall, a solid unrestored, uniform set, all original and not made up or supplied from other copies. An affordable copy in collector's condition. We buy Dickens First Editions!!!.

The Works of Charles Dickens (Including: Bleak: Dickens, Charles

About this Item: 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. Charles 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).

About this Item: London, (C. Whiting for) Chapman and Hall, 1861., 1861. 3 vols, 8vo, pp. [4], 344; [2], 351, [1]; [2], 344; bound without publisher's catalogue at end of vol. 3; some finger marks and other light marks, occasional light spotting, faint creases to a few corners, foxing to endpapers; but a very good copy in later half calf over brown cloth boards, spines gilt in compartments with lettering-pieces, marbled edges and endpapers; lightly rubbed; inscription to front free endpaper of vol. 3: 'Mr A.E.P. Elton Private B. Troop 5th Royal Irish Lancers Newbridge Ireland'; marginal ink calculations to vol. 1 p. 67.First edition, second impression, of one of the great Victorian novels, which was already in short supply in 1861. After Great Expectations had attracted a large readership in All the Year Round, Chapman and Hall were understandably cautious in their initial order for the novel as a traditional three-decker at 31s 6d, a format that had not been tried for Dickens before. Their accounts (in the Forster collection at the V&A) show 'five successive payments to Whiting, the printer, for 1000, 750, 750, 500, and 750 copies', the later impressions from standing type or stereotype plates (to judge from the reduced costs). This caution seems excessive as Mudie, the circulating library, took 1400 copies (Clarendon Press edition, pp. xliv-xlv).The four later impressions are all part of the first edition, with some perpetuated errors and only the trifling textual variants that can affect stereotype plates or standing type. They are, however, usually bound up with title-pages describing them as 'Second', 'Third', 'Fourth', or 'Fifth' editions, terms that Dickens himself used in correspondence, but they are no such thing. The true second edition is the 'new edition in one volume' of 1862. Press advertisements suggest July, early August, late August, September and October as the dates that the five impressions were published.This copy has all the textual variants of the second impression noted in list C in Appendix D of the Clarendon Press edition. The editor's own conclusion is 'that there are no differences of textual interest between the impressions' (p. 491).See: Walter E. Smith, Charles Dickens in the original cloth (1982), pp. 99-104; Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, ed. Margaret Cardwell (Clarendon Press, 1993), pp. 491-499. Language: English.

About this Item: 1861. Household edition. Illustrated from drawings by F.O.C. Darley and John Gilbert. 8vo. Original dark green cloth. New York, James G. Gregory. In two volumes. First American Edition [?] Research by Kevin MacDonnell shows that this edition, part of Gregory's Household Edition of the Works of Charles Dickens, precedes the edition published by Peterson of Philadelphia. Peterson's edition includes a statement that his is the only edition for which Dickens was compensated, which has long been taken as evidence of his being the first American edition. However, James G. Gregory entered a two volume set of Great Expectations for copyright in New York on August 26th of 1861, just weeks after the Harper serialization ended; Peterson did not enter his one-volume edition until November 8th of 1861. These two volumes are in bright, near-fine condition (a tiny bit of wear at the spine heads, discreet blindstamp of the original Troy NY bookseller on the front free endpaper.) Podeschi D38. In a stout, functional leatherbound case. Seller Inventory # 130340
