OLIVER TWIST;

[Dickens, Charles]

1838. [our finest copy evah] or, The Parish Boy's Progress. By "Boz." In Three Volumes. London: Richard Bentley, 1838. 4 pp Vol I undated ads; 2 preliminary pp Vol III undated ads. Original purplish-brown fine-diaper cloth. First Edition, first issue, of this classic novel that has also been a hit as a Broadway musical. This is the "true first edition," not merely the "first edition in book form." Unlike most of Dickens's novels, OLIVER TWIST was not first issued in monthly serial parts; it did appear in "Bentley's Miscellany" magazine from February 1837 through April 1839, but this three-volume edition was published in November 1838. (OLIVER TWIST was finally issued in ten serial parts in 1846 -- one of the scarcest "Dickens in parts.")~Within a week after initial publication, copies began to be issued (at Dickens's insistence) with his name on the title pages (rather than "Boz"), and with the "church" plate replacing the "fireside" plate. This copy is of the first issue -- with "Boz" on the title pages and with the "fireside" plate at the end of Vol III. This set is in the primary fine-diaper cloth (some copies are in horizontally-ribbed cloth of the same color, but with a different arabesque design -- precedence unknown). This copy does have the "London/Bentley" imprint at the foot of the spines, where some copies are blank; it has been surmised that the blank binding is earlier, if only because Bentley would have been more likely to add than to remove his name from the volumes -- though precedence is far from certain. Lastly, the list of illustrations in Vol I is present in this copy: again it is uncertain whether its absence or its presence was the earlier state, though it is possible that Bentley may have begun inserting it when he realized that George Cruikshank's name had otherwise been omitted from the publication. (Bear in mind that the second issue, with Dickens's name on the title pages, was out within a week of the first; therefore, all of these questions of precedence among issue points involve only a few days.)~This set is in FINE condition: there is essentially no external wear to the cloth, the spine gilt remains bright, the original yellow endpapers exhibit only the merest hint of cracking, there is scarcely any foxing at all on the textual leaves or plates... in fact, the ONLY notable flaw is that on two covers there is a faint partial glass-ring. Period. This is the best copy we have offered in our 35 years in business. Smith I pp 28-37; Gimbel A27; Eckel pp 59-61; Carter BV p. 107 and MBV p. 7. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.

Oliver Twist; Or, The Parish Boy’s Progress by “Boz”

DICKENS, CHARLES

London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First Edition; three volumes; first issue; with “Boz” on the title pages and with the “fireside” plate in volume three. Publisher’s cloth; variant state binding with “London/ Bentley” at the foot of the spines (according to Smith, not a point of any significance); some cloth fading, minor wear and spotting; slight ink marks on one title page; a very clean set with only occasional spots and foxing; in a custom quarter morocco slipcase with chemises. The "fireside" plate was one of several illustrations by Cruikshank that were rushed to complete the book. Reviewing the plates before publication, Dickens objected to this illustration and ordered a new one prepared. Early copies have this original plate, as well as "Boz" on the title page, which also displeased the author. The book was published on November 9, 1838, and changes were made in copies prepared between the 9th and the 16th.

Oliver Twist.

Dickens, Charles

London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First edition, first issue with 24 plates by George Cruikshank (including the suppressed "Fireside" plate) and without Dickens' name on the title page. Both plate and name were changed within the week of publication in November 1928. Octavo, three volumes, original red cloth. An excellent example with some toning to the spine and rubbing to the crown of the spines. "Dickens turned in Oliver Twist to the novel of crime and terror Some characters are drawn with humorous realism, but for the most part humor is dimmed by gloomy memories of the author’s own neglected childhood and sensational scenes are shrouded in an atmosphere genuinely eerie and sinister That Dickens shared with his contemporaries the conviction that the novel should be an instrument of social reform is evident in Oliver Twist" (Baugh).

DICKENS, Charles

London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First Edition. Hardcover. Attractive, unrestored copy of this Dickens masterwork, noted by Self as "the first English novel to feature a young child as protagonist." Begun as a serial in Bentley's Miscellany, the book was issued prior to the story's completion in the magazine. Later issues replace "Boz" with "Charles Dickens" on title page and replace the "Fireside" illustration, which Dickens disliked, with a graveside scene. Three octavo volumes. First issue, with "Boz" on title page of all three volumes and "Fireside" plate at p.312 of volume III. 4pp. of publisher's ads at end of volume I. Half-titles present in volumes I & II; lacking in volume 3, where the advertising leaf appears in lieu of half-title. Volume I includes the leaf of instructions for placement of plates (often lacking). 24 inserted leaves of plates by George Cruikshank. Publisher's deep brown cloth, faded to tan on spines; cream yellow endpapers; page edges untrimmed; brief (1/8") mended tear to cloth at crown of volume I; volumes I & III faded at upper extremities of boards; still a clean, complete, and entirely unsophisticated set, texts unmarked with scattered faint foxing; Very Good.

OLIVER TWIST

DICKENS, Charles

London: Richard Bently, 1838. First Edition, First Issue with "Boz" on the title page and the "fireside" plate at the end of vol III. Cruikshank. 8vo, pp. 331 + adv; 307; 315. Bound in publisher's blind horizontally ribbed stamped cloth:Vol. I hinges broken, connected to the cloth, bookplate; Vol. II, very good; Vol. III: hinges loose, This copy does not have an imprint at the bottom of the spines. 24 etched plates by George Cruikshank including the "Fireside" plate (facing p. 313 in vol. III). The three volumes are housed in a full calf slip case with individual chemises. Smith I pp 28-37; Gimbel A27; Eckel pp 59-61; Carter BV p. 107 and MBV p. 7; VanderPoel Collection B87(1). This is the true first editon. Oliver Twist was not issued in parts until 1846. From Wikipedia: The story is of the orphan Oliver Twist, who starts his life in a workhouse and is then sold into an apprenticeship with an undertaker. He escapes from there and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets, which is led by the elderly criminal Fagin. Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens's unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives, as well as exposing the cruel treatment of the many orphans in London in the mid–nineteenth century. The alternate title, The Parish Boy's Progress, alludes to Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, as well as the 18th-century caricature series by William Hogarth, A Rake's Progress and A Harlot's Progress. An early example of the social novel, Dickens satirizes the hypocrisies of his time, including child labour, the recruitment of children as criminals, and the presence of street children. The novel may have been inspired by the story of Robert Blincoe, an orphan whose account of working as a child labourer in a cotton mill was widely read in the 1830s. It is likely that Dickens's own youthful experiences contributed as well. Oliver Twist has been the subject of numerous adaptations, for various media, including a highly successful musical play, Oliver!, and the multiple Academy Award-winning 1968 motion picture.

Oliver Twist.

DICKENS, Charles.

London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (188 x 114 mm). Contemporary dark brown half calf, twin red morocco labels, spines richly gilt in compartments, marbled paper sides with blind rolls, marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece to each volume and 21 plates by George Cruikshank. Bound without half-titles; contemporary ownership stamp to each front free endpaper verso; some inked marginalia to Volume 2. Boards slightly rubbed, mild tanning to plates, occasional spotting to text. An excellent set. First edition, second issue, with "Charles Dickens" rather than "Boz" on the title pages and with the Church plate replacing the Fireside plate in the third volume. "When Bentley decided to publish Oliver in book form before its completion in his periodical, Cruikshank had to complete the last few plates in haste. Dickens did not review them until the eve of publication and objected to the Fireside plate ('Rose Maylie and Oliver' No. 8 in volume III) which depicted Oliver at Rose Maylie's knee with Harry and old Mrs. Maylie all gathered around the living-room fire. Dickens had Cruikshank design a new plate which retained the same title and showed Rose and Oliver standing before the tablet put up in the church to the memory of Oliver's mother. This Church plate was not completed in time for incorporation into the early copies of the book, but it replaced the Fireside plate in later copies and was used in Bentley's Miscellany" (Smith). Dickens had also decided that he would no longer be known as "Boz"; again this decision was too late for the earliest copies, those published between 9 and 16 November. A well-preserved set in contemporary bindings.

London: Richard Bentley, 1840. New Edition [cf. Tillotson Transactions of the Bibliographical Society. Fifth Series, Vol. XVIII, No. 2, June 1963; Smith, Notes 5d and 5e]. Publisher's original dark red-brown diaper cloth, vertically-ribbed, with gilt spine lettering (imprint present); arabesque design in blind to the boards. Average wear to extremities; spines sunned; light foxing and occasional edge-darkening to plates. VG.. Three volumes: [2], 331, [1, blank], [4, ads] pp.; [2], 307, [1, blank] pp.; [2], 315, [1, blank] pp. 24 engraved plates by George Cruikshank. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5" Volumes I and II of the Bentley's fictitious "new edition," printed from the plates of the Second Edition, with Vol III of the 1840 publication (this volume entirely reset and printed by Schulze). Given the matched casings, we presume the sheets were sent by the publisher to bindery at the same time and so sold as a set in 1840. Tillotson mentions having seen only one other copy of the New Edition, at the London Library, rebound and lacking the advertisements; Smith notes that it is "[v]ery scarce" and adds that the 1840 issue is also "quite scarce."

OLIVER TWIST

Dickens, Charles (Boz!)

1839. In Two Volumes. Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, successors to Carey & Co., 1839. 2 pp preliminary ads in Vol I; 16 pp terminal ads in Vol II. Original paper-covered boards with rose cloth spines and printed spine labels. First American Edition. The UK serialization of OLIVER TWIST took place in Bentley's Miscellany from February 1837 through April 1839, with Bentley's three-volume first edition coming out on November 9, 1838. Serialization was likewise taking place (irregularly -- beginning in the middle) in the American version of Bentley's Miscellany, and in addition Lea & Blanchard began issuing illustrated parts in 1838 (copying from the Miscellany). L&B's plan was simply to publish a one-volume edition complete with all 24 Cruikshank illustrations, as soon as possible -- but as the end of 1838 (and the publication of the three-volume edition in London) drew nigh, L&B faced a dilemma: their competitors would soon have access to the three-volume edition.~It is noteworthy that L&B had "signified their desire to differentiate themselves from the ordinary piratical reprinters of Dickens's work in America" by making modest payments to Dickens (50 pounds to Dickens, 60 to Bentley) via their agent in London; this was "not unmingled with self-interest," as it secured slightly-advance proofs unavailable to their competitors -- but they had to hurry to take advantage of this small time advantage. According to Tillotson, L&B first printed their octavo one-volume edition by the second week of December 1838 -- but then did not publish it until 2 February 1839, due to the delay in receiving and reproducing the 24 illustrations. In the third week of December 1838, L&B, with their one-volume edition printed and awaiting illustrations, decided that they must rush an un-illustrated edition through the press and into the public's hands before their competitors (namely William Colyer of New York) could get a copy of the three-volume London edition by sea -- so this two-volume edition hit the streets on 19 December 1838 -- with an apology, on the preliminary leaf, that the Cruikshank illustrations had not yet arrived. (For more detail on all of this see Kathleen Tillotson's magnificent analysis of the 1838-39 Philadelphia editions of OLIVER TWIST -- source of the above quotes.)~This edition has the error that both the last chapter in Vol I and the first chapter in Vol II are numbered XXIX -- with the improper numbering then carrying through to the end of the book. This copy has the only issue point (the preliminary ad leaf) in the first state (signed with an asterisk but no "1").~Condition is, for this cheap hurry-up production, very good. The rose cloth spines are as always faded, and the labels there are rubbed (though mostly still present); the endpapers (each front one bearing the same early signature) are cracked but present and the volumes are tight; the leaves (cheap paper) exhibit the usual amount of foxing. Smith pp 83-87; Podeschi (Yale) A33.

Jemima Lewer, in August 1838, continued monthly publication through April 1839. These two volumes contain that text & illustrations published through December 1838 [Book the Third, Chapter 8]. A rather uncommon US periodical publication of Dickens' famous novel.

OLIVER TWIST (Near Fine Example of the First "Cheap" Edition in Original Cloth)

Dickens, Charles

London: Chapman & Hall, 1850. Dickens, Charles. OLIVER TWIST. Frontispiece by George Cruikshank. London: Chapman & Hall, 1850. Original blind-stamped green publisher's cloth with spines elaborately decorated in gilt. First "Cheap" Edition (actually volume 6 of the first and most important collected works of Dickens, with a new 4pp introduction by Dickens and a specially commissioned new frontispiece). Begun in 1847 with writings already published, Dickens added further titles to his "works" as he went along. Despite being called "cheap" -- these volumes are just as high quality in texture and ornamentation as his first editions; there are 17 volumes and 18 titles in total, we've never seen a complete set in fine original condition and individual volumes in collector's condition are scarce. A remarkably FINE copy of this surprising scarce edition in original cloth, spine a trifle browned (as almost always with this olive-green cloth), a few pages slightly foxed, minor wear to the extremities, bright gilt, and excellent eye appeal. First Edition Thus. Decorative Cloth. Near Fine. Illus. by George Cruikshank.

Oliver Twist

Dickens, Charles

Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea. Very Good. 1851. Hardcover. 212 pages; Contemporary black half leather over marbled boards, flat spine "paneled" with pairs of gilt rules, title stamped in gilt in the second panel. Sound, but somewhat rubbed, particularly at the spine ends and lower corners. With a remarkable provenance. There is a circular stamp impressed in blind on the verso of the front free-endpaper: "Thos. C. Acton New York" This is confirmed by a pencil signature at the head of the Introduction (p. [iii]) -- "1/2 Blue / T. C. Acton." The owner was Thomas Coxon Acton [1823-1898] -- public servant, politician, reformer, Treasury official, banker, police commissioner of the New York City Police Department and the first appointed president of its Board of Police Commissioners. In 1863, he and Commissioner John G. Bergen took control of the police force during the New York Draft Riots (after police superintendent John A. Kennedy was nearly beaten to death by the mob early on the first day of the riots). Action assumed direction of police and military force against rioters in Manhattan, where most of the violence was centered, including the shameful burning of the Colored Orphan Asylum at 44th Street and Fifth Avenue. The New York Times (whose Manhattan offices were saved from destruction during those tumultuous four days only by Gattling guns wielded by staffers, including including Times founder Henry Jarvis Raymond) -- summed up Acton's life with this headline for his obituary: "Thomas C. Acton Is Dead; He Expired at His Home in Saybrook, Conn., After a Long Illness. Made History In This City, He Stopped the Draft Riots Here During the War -- An Abolitionist in Earlier Days and Helped Form the Republican Party". (New York Times. 2 May 1898). The phrase, "signed by Thomas C. Acton" will raise the heart rate of any collectors of rare American currency notes who might read this description. One of the most sought after notes ever issued by the US Treasury is the so-called "Triple Signature" 1882 US20 Gold Certificate. Some early examples of these notes were countersigned in ink by then-Assistant U.S. Treasurer Thomas C. Acton; perhaps this duty became burdensome, since Acton's signature was subsequently engraved on the plates used to print the colorful currency. [Hand signed examples by Acton are described as Friedberg 1175; the notes with the printed signature of Thomas C. Acton are designated Friedberg 1175a. For the record, the other two (printed) signatures are those of Blanche K. Bruce, as Register of the Treasury, and James Gilfillan, as Treasurer of the U.S.]. Either of the Acton notes is rare. Currently, only two examples of the Fr. 1175 issue hand signed by Acton are known -- (one of the pair sold at auction in 2007 for US546,250; twenty seven survivors are recorded of the Fr. 1175a notes signed by Thomas C. Acton in the plate -- one sold in 2007 for a mere US138,000). Thomas Acton resigned from the Treasury to found the Bank of New Amsterdam. He occupied many government positions during his later political career as well as becoming a noted social activist and reformer -- along with Marshall B. Blake and Fred A. Conkling, Acton was a founder of the Republican Party in New York. Action, also, was a founding member of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Children. And, working against many powerful opposing individuals and groups, Acton was instrumental in the founding of the modern New York City Fire Department which replaced the old volunteer firefighter service... (some of those private companies had joined with the Draft Riot mobs). In his early years as President of the NYC Board of Police Commissioners, Thomas C. Acton had another brush with the history of his times. The NY Times for 6 June, 1866 published a short notice of an arrest which Acton was called upon to review. "Yesterday some excitement was created in Canal-street, near Broadway, by an Eighth Precinct Policeman arresting a lady who had just come out of a milliner's store. The lady wore a long coat or robe and a pair of cloth pants, and the guardian of the public peace, imagining that there was something wrong about this, and that a lady ought not to be allowed to dress as she pleases, undertook to arrest her." The arrested lady was Dr. Mary Edward Walker, the second woman to graduate from a medical school in the United States, who became a Civil War surgeon (and perhaps spy...) and who had adopted the bold reforms to female attire championed by Elizabeth (Libby) Miller and Amelia Jenks Bloomer. Dr. Mary Walker refused to tell the patrolman where she lived, and he requested that she accompany him back to the Police station, where Dr. Walker refused to give her name to the sergeant in charge, as she had been detained for no lawful reason. When jail time was pressed as her next alternative, she invited the officer to read her name from the gold medal she worn pinned to her coat. This was the Medal of Honor, issued by President Johnson for her Civil War service. [Mary Walker remains the only woman to whom a United States Medal of Honor has been awarded! -- she reportedly wore hers every day until her death in 1919]. Dr. Walker's case came up before Police Commissioner Thomas C. Acton a few days later. The patrolman's attourney suggested that she had been arrested since it was a crime for women to wear men's clothing. Acton, to his credit, rejected this dubious assertion of law. He is recorded addressing Dr. Walker -- "I consider, Madam, that you have as good a right to wear that clothing as I have to wear mine, and he [the police patrolman] has no more right to arrest you for it, than he has me." Acton then addressed the policeman: "Let her go, she can take care of herself. Never arrest her again." (For the record, Acton's order was not perpetually followed; one biographer counts nine arrests of Mary Edwards Walker over her choice of attire, but no one doubts Acton's assertion that "she [could] take care of herself." Dr. Walker seemed to take pleasure in controversy as a pioneer of women's rights. She also attempted to register to vote, run for Congress, etc. She was elected president of the National Dress Reform Association in the year she came before Thomas C. Acton - 1866.; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated .
