About This Item

London: Chapman & Hall, 1865. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket, As Issued. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. pp: [vii]viii-xii [1]2-320; [v]vi-viii [1]2-309. THE FIRST EDITION IN Two Volumes. Bound in red half leather over marbled boards, raised bands, title stamped in gilt on spine. All edges trimmed and marbled. Illustrations by Marcus Stone. New endpapers added. A very good copy with very light, scattered foxing to the edges of the plates. Dickens last complete novel published in twenty monthly parts. As the novel was not as popular as most of his others, there were fewer copies published. There are, therefore, fewer available today. A very nice copy of the First Edition.

Synopsis

Our Mutual Friend (written in the years 1864–65) is the last novel completed by Charles Dickens and is in many ways one of his most sophisticated works, combining deep psychological insight with rich social analysis. At one level it centres on, in the words of critic J. Hillis Miller, "money, money, money, and what money can make of life" but in a deeper sense it's also about 'human values'.
