(Stated "Second Edition" on all title pages. 344; 351; 344pp. Complete in three volumes. Contemporary leather with gilt ruling and lettering on spine. Bound without ads, quite likely as issued.

Smith describes printings two through five as indistinguishable except for their title pages, which may have been printed at the same time to give the impression of brisk sales.

1861. Works of Charles Dickens. Household Edition. [In Two Volumes.] Illustrated from Drawings by F.O.C. Darley and John Gilbert. New York: James G. Gregory, 1861. Original dark green cloth. Very early American Edition -- the first to deposit copies at the Library of Congress -- of one of Dickens's most-loved novels (being volumes of the "Household Edition"). There has been much controversy over which is the first American edition -- this edition by Gregory, or Peterson's edition. This Gregory edition was long regarded as the first American edition, but Walter Smith's 2012 bibliography of Dickens's American editions gives the nod to Peterson's, with considerable information on this controversy. In the meantime here is the brief known history... On November 15, 1860, Harper entered a copyright for the book, and then serialized the tale in Harper's Weekly beginning on November 24 and ending on August 3, 1861 (however, there is no book edition published by Harper in 1861, a ...
