The Pickwick Papers

£14.99

Product description

Charles Dickens' famous title surely needs little introduction! The immortal tales of Mr Pickwick and his friends' escapades and adventures remain enduringly appealing, and this is a particularly nice edition, with 43 illustrations by Seymour and 'Phiz', and a comprehensive introduction by Bernard Darwin.

Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812 –1870), English writer and social critic, created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

Our book is in very good condition, and is protected by a very good (price-clipped) dust jacket which shows only minor signs of wear at top & bottom of the spine, with a little fading and yellowing along the angles. The book itself is bound in tan cloth, with the title etc in silver lettering on the spine, and is without blemish externally. Inside, the binding is firm, and all pages are clean and bright. There is an Ex Libris pasted to the front fep, and the endpaper itself has one or two light brown spots which appear to be 'ghosts' of sticky tape rather than foxing. Similar marks appear on the rear free endpaper, with one brown spot on the inside of the back cover. The book was evidently part of a set of 21 volumes issued in various bindings, as evidenced by the information printed on the back flap of the dust jacket.
