About this Item: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859, 1859. 8 numbers bound in 7 monthly parts, as issued. Original pale blue pictorial wrappers. Housed in a custom green cloth folding chemise within a green quarter morocco box, spine lettered in gilt, green cloth sides. Very minor wear to spine ends, a few nicks at extremities, front joint of parts I and V split at foot, discreet repair to foot of spine of part II, a few nicks, fox marks and creases to contents. Overall an excellent, bright set. Frontispiece, vignette title, and 14 plates by H. K. Browne, with tissue-guards. First edition, in the original monthly parts, with all the requisite first issue points as listed by Hatton and Cleaver, except for variant advertisements at rear of parts II, III and VI. The plates, often worn and faint due to the number of impressions, are here clear and defined. Eckel states that only the original parts of Pickwick Papers and Sketches by Boz exceed the parts of A Tale of Two Cities in scarcity (Eckel, p. 86). Dickens's great historical romance, set during the French Revolution, remains one of his best known and most widely read works. Loosely inserted are three previous catalogue slips for the set, one with a manuscript annotation placing it in A. S. W. Rosenbach's 1940 catalogue. Hatton & Cleaver, pp. 332–342.
