NICHOLAS NICKLEBY (Superb Example of the First "Cheap" Edition in Original Cloth)

Dickens, Charles

London: Chapman & Hall, 1848. Dickens, Charles. NICHOLAS NICKLEBY. Frontispiece by T. Webster. London: Chapman & Hall, 1848. Original blind-stamped green publisher's cloth with spines elaborately decorated in gilt. First "Cheap" Edition (actually volume 2 of the first and most important collected works of Dickens, with (in this case) a 4pp new introduction and a specially commissioned new frontispiece). Begun in 1847 with works already published, Dickens added further titles as he went along. Despite being called "cheap" Dickens made sure that these volumes were just as high quality in texture and ornamentation as his first editions; there are 17 volumes in total, all are rarely seen in fine condition. NEAR FINE, spine a trifle browned (as almost always with this olive-green cloth), trifling wear to the extremities, lower inner hinge just barely cracked, bright gilt, excellent eye appeal. . First Edition Thus. Decorative Cloth. Near Fine. Illus. by T. Webster.
