Works of Charles Dickens (Household Edtion)

£100.00

Product description

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.

Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit, 1872, illustrated by Barnard. Covers and spine worn and bumped.

Bleak House, 1873, illustrated by Barnard. Small ink blot to the bottom edge.

Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, 1874, illustrated by Phiz. Front cover has cracked away from the binding leaving binding more tender on opening pages.

Barnaby Rudge, 1874, illustrated by Barnard.

Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, 1875, illustrated by Barnard. Covers and spine worn and bumped. Spine cracked at pp148-9 exposing webbing

Great Expectations 1876 illustrated by Fraser Spine cracked at pp132-3 exposing webbing
