Matted in a walnut frame which measures 24 inches by 27 inches. On his Washington tour Dickens met President Andrew Johnson and signed this photograph on the date of that meeting, February 7, which also happened to be Dickens' birthday. He discussed in a letter to his friend and agent John Foster regarding that day, "This scrambling scribblement is resumed this morning, because I have just seen the President: who had sent to me very courteously asking me to make my own appointment. He is a man with a remarkable face." From the Library of The Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C. Portrait photographs of this size signed by Dickens are exceptionally rare, especially with such noted provenance. Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the… Read more

Description:
Original red cloth (first binding). Joints very slightly tender, light soiling. A very handsome copy in original, unrestored condition. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, FIRST BINDING, FIRST PRINTING (with page 213 mis-numbered 113 and sig. b present on the list of illustrations, points that were corrected in later copies of this edition). A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens's greatest and most-quoted novels. "The force of the novel springs from its exploration of darkness and death but its beauty derives from Dickens's real sense of transcendence, from his ability to see the sweep of destiny . . . this is what emerges most clearly from one of his shortest and most powerful novels" (Ackroyd). Dickens was emotionally vested in this great novel. He wrote, "It has had complete possession of me; I have so far verified what is done and suffered in these pages as that I have certainly done and suffered it all myself." The quality and strength of the prose is some of the finest he was ever to produce, for… Read more

Description:
London: Chapman and Hall,, 1861 [i.e. 1860]. Presentation copy to his friend William Harness Octavo (184 x 117 mm). Contemporary green half morocco, red morocco label, marbled sides, speckled edges. With 32pp. of advertisements at the end dated December 1860. Morocco heavily rubbed, light wear at extremities, but binding still firm with joints holding, contents clean; a good copy. First edition in book form, presentation copy from Dickens to his friend William Harness, inscribed by the author on the title page "The Rev: William Harness From Charles Dickens Christmas, 1860". Dickens's friendship with the Shakespearean scholar William Harness (1790-1869) probably began at the Athenaeum - where both were members - in 1838, and was no doubt cemented when both men became members of the Shakespeare Society in 1840. Harness was one of the small circle invited to attend the private reading of The Chimes at John Forster's rooms in December 1844, and is depicted as overcome with emotion in Daniel Maclise's… Read more
