About This Item

Chatto & Windus, Piccadilly. London. 1876. FIRST EDITION. First impression.

8vo. (7.8 x 5.9 inches). A few small marks to just a handful of pages but generally this is a clean and bright copy throughout.
Finely bound in recent full red morocco. Spine with five raised bands. Gilt ruling, lettering and decorations to compartments. Single gilt ruled border on boards. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Original publishers decorative front board and spine, which is rubbed and toned, have been bound in at the rear. Overall a very good attractive copy of the true first edition of this classic book.

First published in England in order to secure a British copyright, the London edition precedes the American edition by about six months.
