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

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

An excellent set housed in a cloth clam shell box. This was the last of the large novels by Dickens published by Bradbury and Evans and marked their parting of the ways. In "Little Dorrit", once again, Dickens deals with debtor's prisons, etc. From Wikipedia: Little Dorrit is a novel by Charles Dickens, originally published in serial form between 1855 and 1857. It satirizes the shortcomings of both government and society, including the institution of debtors' prisons, where debtors were imprisoned, unable to work, until they repaid their debts. The prison in this case is the Marshalsea, where Dickens's own father had been imprisoned. Dickens is also critical of the lack of a social safety net, the treatment and safety of industrial workers, as well the bureaucracy of the British Treasury, in the form of his fictional "Circumlocution Office". In addition he satirizes the stratification of society that results from the British class system. Bookseller Inventory # 55368

Item Description: 1857. First Edition. DICKENS, Charles. Little Dorrit. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1857. Thick octavo, contemporary three-quarter vellum, red morocco spine label, marbled boards and edges. $1750.First edition in book form, first issue, of one of Dickens’ most outspoken and outstanding novels, with 40 illustrations by Hablôt Knight Brown ("Phiz"), including frontispiece and vignette title page."In Little Dorrit Dickens mounts his single most ferocious onslaught against England and English society; against its government, against its financiers, against its artists and even against its ordinary citizens who, at least in Bleeding Heart Yard, believed that ‘foreigners were always immoral that foreigners had no independent spirit" (Ackroyd, 758). Perhaps unsurprisingly, many reviewers reviled the book upon its publication. Dickens’ friend Hans Christian Andersen advised the author to ignore the critics: "They are forgotten in a week, and your book stands and lives" (Ackroyd, 780). And indeed, Little Dorrit does: not only a commercial success in its day (poor press notwithstanding) but also esteemed now as a "wonderfully rich novel— rich in ideas, rich in characterization, rich in incident, and written in a richly imaginative prose Many [modern] critics regard it as Dickens’ masterpiece" (Watts, 108). First issue, still retaining signature "B2" on page 371 and "Rigaud" mistakenly substituted for "Blandois" on pages 469-74. Eckel, 82-85. Smith I:12. Gimbel (Podeschi) A141. Armorial bookplate of Sir John Whittaker Ellis, onetime Lord Mayor of London and Member of Parliament. Dealer description tipped in.Plates generally darkened at edges (as often).

Item Description: London Bradbury and Evans 1857, 1857. First edition, first issue with the points as called for including: the three line errata on page xiv, "William" for "Frederick" on page 317 line 27, B2 instead of BB2 on pp. 371, lacking errata on page 467, and "Rigaud" for "Blandois" on pp. 469, 470, 472, and 473. With 40 engraved illustrations by H.K. Browne [Phiz] including the frontispiece and vignette title-page. 8vo, handsomely bound in contemporary three-quarter dark plum-brown calf over textured cloth boards, the spine with gilt tooled lightly raised bands ruled in gilt, compartments richly gilt in ornamented panel designs and with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt. xiv, 623 pp. A very nice copy, much better then one would typically find in contemporary bindings, the leather with only very minor rubbing and mellowing, sturdy and strong with firm hinges, internally solid, the text very clean. A bit of minor and all but inevitable spotting to the plates, a bit more so to the frontis but still less then is common. FIRST EDITION WITH EARLIEST ISSUE POINTS IN A HANDSOME BINDING OF UNCOMMON PLUM-BROWN CALF. Little Dorrit was published in 19 monthly installments, each two illustrations by Phiz. Each installment cost a shilling, with the exception of the last, a double issue, which cost two shillings. It is a work of satire on the shortcomings of the government and society of the period.Much of Dickens' ire is focused upon the institutions of debtors' prisons—in which people who owed money were imprisoned, unable to work, until they repaid their debts. The representative prison in this case is the Marshalsea where the author's own father had been imprisoned. Bookseller Inventory # 22758
