The Works of Charles Dickens (13 volumes)
Chapman & Hall, London, 1872-79
Various illustrators (see below)
This is a collection of 13 volumes from the Household Edition. They all feature the distinctive original green boards and elaborate front cover gilt design on the front covers. They all have the lemon coloured end papers so are probably early impressions. There were 21 titles in the original set.
The condition ranges from good to very good, books are complete and intact with good binding unless otherwise stated, edges dusty and rough cut. In general there is some foxing to the first few and last few pages, but not in between, of each volume. The covers and spine of each volume are lightly worn and bumped, and the top and bottom of the spine worn, bumped and a bit frayed, unless otherwise stated. Overall a nice set of 13 of the titles.
