Description:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. Original cloth, with all the points of first issue First edition, first impression, published on 6 July 1861; both the rarest and most valuable of Dickens's works, and, arguably, his greatest. Copies in the original cloth are particularly desirable. Five impressions of the first edition were printed, each of the latter four with a new edition statement on the title page. The modern bibliographical authority is generally agreed to be the table given in Appendix D to the Clarendon edition, 1993, in which Margaret Cardwell agrees with the traditional conclusion that the same setting of type was used for all five impressions: "there is no warrant for treating the five impressions as distinct editions" (p. 491). However, she deduces that the impressions were sequential and that minor corrections and gradual deterioration of type can be shown across the five impressions, allowing the first impression to be identified even when the title page is tampered with or absent.Patten… Read More

However, our set does have the two other points which are that there is a period after the headline on page 236 in volume III and also a dot over the 'i" on page 278, volume II. However, according to Clarendon, we have some points of the first issue, but most are second. Original moderate violet wavy-grain cloth with… Read More

Description:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. Dickens' penultimate novel, Great Expectations, was written in "the afternoon of [his] life and fame" (G.K. Chesterton). The novel contains some of Dickens' most memorable scenes, including its opening, set in a graveyard, when the young orphan Pip is accosted by escaped convict Abel Magwitch. Upon its release, the novel received near universal acclaim. Although Dickens' contemporary Thomas Carlyle referred to it disparagingly as "that Pip nonsense," he nevertheless reacted to each fresh instalment with "roars of laughter." Later, George Bernard Shaw praised the novel, as "all of one piece and consistently truthful." During the serial publication, Dickens was pleased with public response to Great Expectations and its sales; when the plot first formed in his mind, he called it "a very fine, new and grotesque idea.

(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. Bibliographer Walter E. 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. All had the same textual errors, etc.) Bindings edge-worn, leather starting to split along spine edges, hinges a bit tender, gilt barely legible. Internally Very Good with some light corner creasing, stray light stains and foxing. A very nice set of the classic novel.

Octavo, 30 volumes, bound in three quarters leather over marbled boards, gilt tooling to the spine, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, illustrated throughout. In very good condition. Ownership inscription. Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).
