THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD. COMPLETE by  Charles [sic] Dickens - First Edition - 1873 - from Sumner & Stillman and


by Dickens, Charles [sic]

Condition: See description

1873. Brattleboro [Vermont]: published by T[homas]. P. James, 1873. Original brown cloth. First Edition of one of the earliest -- and certainly most curious -- sequels/solutions to Charles Dickens's THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, published in Vermont only three years after the mystery was left unfinished when Dickens died in June 1870. It occupies a considerable 488 pages. According to the "Medium's Preface" written by James (a Vermont clairvoyant), the spirit of Charles Dickens wrote this book, completing the tale by communicating with James while the latter slept. (Thus James himself has no recollection of having written it...); there is also an "Author's Preface" written by Dickens from beyond the grave. This is a tight, near-fine copy, with only quite minor wear at the extremities. Carr (UTexas) B291.
