DICKENS, Charles

London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First Edition. Attractive, unrestored copy of this Dickens masterwork, noted by Self as "the first English novel to feature a young child as protagonist."

Half-titles present in volumes I & II; lacking in volume 3, where the advertising leaf appears in lieu of half-title. Volume I includes the leaf of instructions for placement of plates (often lacking). 24 inserted leaves of plates by George Cruikshank. Publisher's deep brown cloth, faded to tan on spines; cream yellow endpapers; page edges untrimmed; brief (1/8") mended tear to cloth at crown of volume I; volumes I & III faded at upper extremities of boards; still a clean, complete, and entirely unsophisticated set, texts unmarked with scattered faint foxing; Very Good.
