About this Item

First number of the first U.S. edition of this charming, humorous Bildungsroman, here in the publisher's original wrappers. 16 in-text wood engravings adorn the text; like the illustration on the front wrapper here, they are based on the =>originals done by Thackeray himself. The front wrapper states "To be completed in seven numbers," although in actuality it took eight. A nice example of a "part" of a book issued in parts. 8vo (23.5 cm, 9.25"). [10]?104 pp.; illus. Publisher's printed paper wrappers; wrappers darkened with corners bumped, front wrapper with small ink spots, short edge tears, and faint rings of discoloration. Faint intermittent foxing with one signature (only) more notably age-toned.; final leaf with portion torn out of outer margin, not touching text. => A pleasing touchstone for Victorian literature and its "production.". Bookseller Inventory # 33259
