Lieve abrasione alle cuffie dei due volumi di Barnaby Rudge, piccolo taglio (1 cm) senza mancanza alla cuffia superiore del volume secondo di David Copperfield, strappi restaurati alla parte superiore del dorso del volume Christmas Books, alcune lievi gore al primo volume di Papers of the Pickwick Club. Nel complesso bella edizione in tela editoriale in buone condizioni. Elenco delle opere presenti The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (due volumi), Nicholas Nickleby (due volumi), Martin Chuzzlewit (due volumi), The Old Curiosity Shop (due volumi), Barnaby Rudge (due volumi include Hard Times), Sketches by Boz, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield (Due volumi), Pictures from Italy, Bleak House (Due volumi), Little Dorrit (Due volumi) Christmas Books, Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend (Duevolumi), Dombey and Son (2 volumi), The uncommercial traveller, A Child's History of England, Edwin and Drood and other stories, Christmas stories. Nel primo volume di The Posthumous Papers del Pickwick Club si trova la dedica di Dickens al suo amico Forster "This the best edition of my books is, of right, inscribed to my dear friend John Forster, biographer of Oliver Goldsmith, in affectionate acknowledgment of his counsel, sympathy, and faithful friendship during my whole literary life". Fu proprio Forster a dare a Dickens l'idea di pubblicare un'edizione di lusso delle sue opere, che fino ad allora erano state pubblicate solo in edizioni economiche. Lo scrittore pensò che il proporre un'edizione elegante dei suoi scritti potesse dare maggiore elevatura alle sue opere. Fu così che tra il 1858-59 la Library Edition apparve in 22 volumi con frontespizi illustrati. Tra il 1861 e il 1874 questa stessa edizione venne ripubblicata in 30 volumi con l'aggiunta di Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend, The Uncommercial Traveller, A Child's History of England, Christmas Stories, Edwin and Drood. Questa nuova edizione venne illustrata da artisti come Marcus Stone, John Leech e Clarkson Stanfield - e venne conosciuta con il nome di Illustrated Library Edition. Gimbel D72.
