Description:
Bloomsbury: The Nonesuch Press, 1937, 1938. Limited Editiom. Hardcover. Very Good. H.K. Browne [Phiz], et al.. Octavo. Edition limited to 877 sets. The reason for this finite number was because each set came with one of the original engraved steel plates used for producing the illustrations in the first editions of Dickens's novels. The Nonesuch Press purchased the plates, all 877, from Dickens's original publisher Chapman & Hall. This means that not only are collectors receiving a set of beautiful books that were based on Dickens's original typesetting, but are receiving an authentic piece of the history of these books. As each novel was unique unto itself, Francis Meynell designed a Harlequin set, each volume bearing a different colour buckram although uniform in dimensions and with a gilt-stamped black leather spine label and gilt to the rough top edges. The steel plate, this being "The Ghosts Walk" engraved by H.K. Browne ('Phiz') for Messrs. Chapman & Hall is encased in a clamshell box bound… Read More

Description:
London, The Nonesuch Press. 1937-38 . 25 volumes, including "Dickensiana" and plate volume, one of 877 numbered sets, 8vo., with illustrations printed from the original plates, original vari-coloured cloth, morocco labels, top edges gilt on the rough, others uncut, light even and uniform fading to spines as usual, a little spotting to the buckram on one or two volume but a really pleasing set. With the original steel plate 'The Dying Clown' from Pickwick Papers, with letter of authenticity from the publisher. Text based upon the Charles Dickens Edition, the last to be revised by Dickens himself. After the Depression of the early thirties, the Nonesuch Press was effectively saved from bankruptcy by the intervention of the American, George Macy. The Dickens was very much his project and it was due to his great energy that the set was produced so quickly. It was described at the time by the Daily Telegraph as "One of the most glorious achievements of publishing in our time. Robert Lynd in the News… Read More

Description:
25 vols. London: The Nonesuch Press, 1937-39. 25 vols. in all, 23 volumes of text, one volume containing an original steel plate engraving, and the companion volume "Nonesuch Dickensiana" in blue cloth. Original buckram in various colors, black morocco label to spines, top edges gilt on the rough, others untrimmed. A fine set as issued, amazingly without any fading or wear. § First Nonesuch edition, number 638 of 877 sets, with an original steel-engraved plate.The limitation is due to the inclusion, enclosed in the 24th volume of each set, of one of the original plates used by Chapman and Hall, Dickens's original publishers, in their first printings of each title. Since they had 877 such plates - the majority steel but with a number of wood blocks - the limitation was thus this number. This set includes the steel-engraved plate "Steerforth and Mr. Mell" from "David Copperfield". Also included is a proof pull and a letter of authentication from Chapman and Hall signed by Deputy Chairman Arthur… Read More

Description:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. 1st edition. Leather Bound. Seymour, Buss, Phiz illusts.. pp. xiv, 609. Thick 8vo. All 43 plates are present, as described in Smith, 'Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth', although five of the plates are placed one page earlier than called for, and one plate is placed ten pages later. Seven of the plates are by Seymour, two by Buss, and the remainder by Phiz. Vignette title page plate shows 'S. Veller' and 'Phiz fecit'. As is always the case with a bound first edition of this title, each of the plates is a 'mixed bag' of first state, first plate, second plate etc. varieties of the plates. Our copy contains at least 33 'matches' to the status of plates found in most first edition copies, as stipulated by Smith; but it also contains 10 plates where the points are different, the majority of the differences suggesting a first plate, first state status.

Description:
Original Manuscript. c.1850s. Autograph note signed "Charles Dickens". Ink manuscript on one sheet of watermarked blue stationary paper, laid down to a second sheet. The note with a single horizontal fold is otherwise in very good condition. A backstage pass from one of Dickens' amateur theatrical productions, the full text reading: "Nobody to pass except the gentlemen who play and / Mr. Wilson / Mr. Jerrold's party / Mr. Charles Dickens' party of ladies. / Charles Dickens". An obsessive devotee of the theatre, Dickens was drawn to the stage at a young age, becoming an early member of the Garrick Club. It was, however, following his move to Tavistock House in 1851, where he wrote Bleak House (1852–53), Hard Times (1854) and Little Dorrit (1856), that he found the time to indulge his love of amateur theatricals, and the period from which the present note likely dates. One of those it names, Douglas William Jerrold (1803-1857), was a close friend of Dickens, who… Read More

Description:
London: Charles Tilt, 1839. First State, First Issue. Hardcover. Near Fine in Very Good Dust Wrapper. First State, First Issue. Hardcover. Bound by English binder Francis Bedford (1799 - 1883). Aggressive bookplate of Ralph Louis Clutton (1902 - 1957), English first-class cricketer. John Furber Dexter (1848 - 1927) was an English collector of Charles Dickens's works. Following his death Dexter's collection remained in family hands before being purchased by the British Library in 1969 as the Dexter Collection of Dickensiana. While much of the text attributed to Thackeray, there has long been suggestions/evidence that Dickens was more directly involved. That discussion, in both directions is well parsed elsewhere. Of interest here is the half page notation by noted Dickens collector, JF Dexter, "Mr. George Cruikshank told me on three different occasions that the preface and notes to this volume were written by Charles Dickens. /s/ John F. Dexter. 13th April, 1878". This elegant little volume presents… Read More
