Item Description: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. London Chapman and Hall, 1859. Beautiful First edition, First Issue in the Original Red Cloth DICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. First edition, first issue in the primary binding. Octavo 8 3/4 x 5 9/16 inches; 222 x 141 mm. [i-vii] viii [ix-x], [1] 2-254; Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz']. All eight of Smith's internal flaws necessary for the first issue present, including page 213 misnumbered 113. Publisherís primary binding of deep red sand-grain cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Edges uncut. Cloth on boards is still a rich red. Housed in a full leather decorated red morocco clamshell case. An excellent copy. A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickensís periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form mark Dickensís return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans. The extremely large audience for the novel in All the Year Round, however, left less than the usual demand for the parts issue and, at first, for the book, both of which are now quite rare. This title also marks the authorís final collaboration with Phiz, Dickensís most evocative and most sympathetic illustrator. Smith I, 13. Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 333-342.

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).

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. Bookseller Inventory # 6097

Item Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1859., 1859. A Spectacular Copy In Original Green Cloth With 1859 Title-PageDICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859.First edition, second state with title-page still dated 1859 but with corrected pagination on page 213 and no signature "b" on the list of plates. Octavo. [i-vii]viii[ix-x], [1]2-254 pp. Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz'].Publisherís secondary binding of moderate olive green fine-diaper cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt, original pale yellow coated endpapers. Boards remarkably fresh. Text and plates very clean and bright with just a minimal scattering of unobtrusive foxing. Just a tiny amount of wear to the top and bottom of the spine, inner hinges very expertly and almost invisibly strengthened. Armorial bookplate of Sir James Martin on front pastedown. A wonderful copy of this late novel, now extremely scarce in either of the original cloth bindings. This is by far the finest copy in original Ďgreení cloth of A Tale of Two Cities that we have ever seen, and although it is the Ďsecondary bindingí, itís superlative condition really does justify itís addition to any fine Dickens collection. Chemised in a full green morocco slip case.This is a true first edition, second state in the original olive-green cloth. The red cloth issue is usually regarded as the primary binding, but copies in the olive-green cloth with the title-page dated 1859 are considered very scarce. Copies in the green-cloth binding were thereafter issued with a title-page dated 1860. These are referred to as the 'third' issue."In the very earliest state there are two pages numbered 113, page 213 furnishing the error. This was not corrected until some copies had been printed. The absence of this error does not necessarily invalidate a first edition, though the error is much preferred because it indicates a prior or earlier printing." Eckel pp. 86/87.A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickensís periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form marks Dickensís return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans.

Item Description: Chapman and Hall, London. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST BOOK EDITION, FIRST STATE, IN RARE ORIGINAL CLOTH of Dickens's historical masterpiece. An exceptional unrestored copy. "A Tale of Two Cities(serialized from 30 April to 26 November 1859)?was inspired by the story of the self-sacrificing lover Richard Wardour (Dickens's role) inThe Frozen Deep. In this novel, the second half of which takes place during the French Revolution, Dickens set himself the task, he told Forster, 'of makinga picturesque story, rising in every chapter with characters true to nature, but whom the story itself should express, more than they should express themselves, by dialogue', glossed by Forster as meaning that Dickens would be relying 'less upon character than upon incident' (Forster, 730, 731). In its tightly organized and highly romantic melodrama and the near-absence of typical 'Dickensian' humour and humorous characters,A Tale of Two Citiescertainly stands apart from all his other novels, although-as in his earlier historical novel-one of the great set pieces of the book is the anarchic destruction of a prison, an event to which Dickens's imagination responded with powerful ambiguity" (Dictionary of National Biography). Complete with sixteen plates (including frontispiece and vignette title) by Phiz, and 32-page publisher's catalog. First state: with p.213 misnumbered 113, "affetcionately" on p.134 (line 12), et al. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth (first binding); early custom box. With royal bookplate of the Earl of Normanton on front pastedown and neat early signature (dated 1874) on front free endpaper. First gathering a little loose (as often), toning to spine and bottom edge of front board. Text and plates extremely clean. A bright, fresh copy in the rare original red cloth.

Item Description: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2014. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This premium quality large print volume includes the complete and unabridged text of Charles Dickens' timeless classic in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. With a large 7.44"x9.69" page size, this Summit Classic Press edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and footers, modern design and page layout reflecting traditional publishing values, and a detailed, original author biography exemplify the attention to detail given this high quality volume. With well over 200 million copies sold and opening and closing lines that are among the most familiar in all of literature, "A Tale of Two Cities" (1859) is one of the best known and most widely-read books in all of literary fiction. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, the novel depicts the suffering of the French peasantry at the hands of the aristocracy and the subsequent abuses of the revolutionaries and their brutality against the aristocrats. Dickens, ever the social critic, manages to draw parallels to English society, and especially the stratified society of London, while creating his hallmark complex characters and compelling story. It has been remarked that Sydney Carton, a dissolute and disillusioned London barrister, is nonetheless the only protagonist in any of Dickens' major works who is, in the classical sense, heroic. While following several characters, the central plot revolves around Carton, Charles Darnay, a virtuous French aristocrat who falls prey to the wide-ranging and unreasoning fury of the Revolution, and Darnay's wife. Born in Portsmouth England on February 7, 1812, Charles Dickens enjoyed a comfortable childhood until his father lost his post at the Navy Pay Office and ultimately landed in debtors' prison. Young Charles embarked upon an horrific stint pasting labels on jars of bootblack in a rat-infested slum. He would later find work as a newspaper writer, covering politics and then the courts. These experiences, with his almost photographic memory, would provide him with material for the colorful characters and vivid depictions of life in England which would characterize his work for decades. The publication of "The Pickwick Papers" in serial form in 1836 brought Dickens success. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity. Ultimately he would become the foremost novelist of the Victorian era and one of the most widely read writers in history. His books have never gone out of print, have been turned into films and plays, and are still widely read today. Along with his compelling storylines and unforgettable characters, Dickens' stories served as vehicles for social commentary, often harshly critical of class stratification and public institutions. In particular, and contrary to prevailing views, Dickens championed the poor, whom he saw as wretched not because of their own weaknesses and moral failures but because of their helplessness before society's attitudes and institutions. And yet Dickens managed throughout to maintain a humorous element, and satire and caricature fill the pages of his works. Dickens died on June 9, 1870, following a stroke. Given the body of work he left behind, it is striking to note that Charles Dickens was just 58 years old at his death. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1496119045

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: London: Chapman & Hall, 1859. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Browne, Hablot Knight (illustrator). 1st Edition. Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne. First edition, first issue, with page 213 incorrectly numbered, signature "b" present on the List of Plates (ix), and all other first issue points called for by Smith. Beautifully bound in 19th century three-quarter dark green morocco and green boards, with five raised bands to the spine, decorated and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, pale pink marbled endpapers. Very good or better, with light toning to the spine, some rubbing to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, spine very lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, spotting to the endpapers, frontispiece and vignette title page, some light and scattered spotting to the otherwise clean pages, bright plates lacking the usual toning. Overall, a handsome copy. Smith I 13. As Hatton and Cleaver note in their bibliography, A Tale of Two Cities has "practically no 'points' sufficiently outstanding to distinguish the earlier printings." However, both H&C and Smith agree that copies with the misprint on page 213 corrected and lacking the signature "b" on page ix are decidedly second printings. This copy does indeed have these points in the earliest state. A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens' most popular novels and begins with the iconic opening line "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." It tells the intertwined stories of several families in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution of 1788-1789; in his preface, Dickens explains his choice of the Revolution as a backdrop to his tale: "it has been one of my hopes to add something to the popular and picturesque means of understanding that terrible time." Prior to the publication of this first book edition, A Tale of Two Cities was published in Dickens' weekly journal All the Year Round from April-November 1859 and issued in eight monthly parts from June-December 1859. Notably, A Tale of Two Cities was the final collaboration between Dickens and his popular illustrator H. K. Browne (Phiz), whose collaboration spanned nearly a quarter of a century and produced ten major novels. Bookseller Inventory # CD084

Item Description: London Chapman and Hall 1860, 1860. First edition, RARE issue with 1860 title and 213 numbered correctly. With 16 illustrations by H. K. Browne, including a frontispiece and vignette title page. 8vo, publisherís original green cloth. viii, 254 A very nice copy, very well preserved and with only light wear. VERY RARE AND ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE STATES OF THE FIRST EDITION. A handsome first edition in original cloth of Dickensí great work about the terrors and turmoil of the French revolution. According to Jarndyce the 3rd issue has the date of 1860 on the title-page instead of 1859 and page 213 is numbered correctly. The green cloth binding is identical to the cloth of the 1859 issues. TALE OF TWO CITIES ranks amongst the most famous works in the history of literary fiction. It is one of only two works of historical fiction by Charles Dickens and stands out from most of Dickens's other novels as the one containing the least humour. That is not surprising, as the historical context of the novel, the French Revolution and Reign of Terror, were a bit bleak to allow for the wackier characters Dickens is known for. This fact has in no way impacted the novelís popularity, it has never been out of print and by the start of the 21th century had sold an estimated 200 million copies worldwide.

Item Description: 1859. [complete in Harper's Weekly] In Three Books - Splendidly Illustrated. In: Harper's Weekly. A Journal of Civilization. New York: Harper & Brothers, May 7 - December 3, 1859. All of the weekly issues for 1859, bound up into one volume bound in three-quarter brown calf and marbled boards. First Appearance in America of one of Dickens's best-known tales. In England, this tale appeared weekly in All The Year Round between the end of April and the end of November 1859, and also in eight-in-seven monthly parts from June through December of the same year; the book edition was issued there on 21 November. In the United States, Harper & Brothers paid for the right to issue this novel in Harper's Weekly, where it did appear serially in 31 issues from May 7th through December 3rd 1859; John McLenan prepared 31 chapter vignettes plus 33 other illustrations for this serialization. (T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia in turn bought the illustrations and, by arrangement with Harper's, published A TALE OF TWO CITIES in book form, in numerous formats, upon the end of serialization -- about two weeks after the U.K. book edition.)~This 16-inch-tall volume includes all of the weekly issues for 1859, beginning with that of January 1 and ending with that of December 31. In addition to A TALE OF TWO CITIES, the volume includes the beginning of Wilkie Collins's THE WOMAN IN WHITE (which immediately followed A TALE OF TWO CITIES in All The Year Round). It also includes many other fascinating articles and illustrations of the day, just two years before the commencement of the American Civil War. (For example, there are numerous stirring illustrations from battles of the Second Italian War of Independence, a.k.a. the Franco-Austrian war, then raging -- and in the final issue of the year, there is a great double-page illustration of the the new U.S. Senate chamber in session.) Also included are numerous illustrations by Winslow Homer -- although of course these issues do not include his upcoming wartime ones.~These issues are bound in recent three-quarter dark-brown calf, with much-earlier marbled boards. Condition is near-fine (very minor external wear, a few leaves torn or with pieces lacking but not affecting A TALE OF TWO CITIES). Bookseller Inventory # 12077

Item Description: Chapman and Hall, London, 1860. First edition, first issue with p. 213 misnumbered "113," the signature mark "b" at the foot of the plate list, and the misspelling "affetcionately" on line 12, p. 134. Octavo, bound in three quarters calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Sixteen plates after H.K. Browne including frontispiece and title vignette. In very good condition with some dampstaining to lower right margin, text and plates. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible. Bookseller Inventory # 15016
