The Adventures of Oliver Twist; or, The Parish - DICKENS, Charles - 1846. 
London: for the author, by Bradbury & Evans, 1846 - Octavo (210 Ã— 130 mm). Early 20th-century red crushed morocco by Morrell, title to spine gilt, richly tooled gilt spine and covers, all edges gilt, purple endpapers. Some minor marks to top margin on first and last few leaves, some offsetting from plates. An excellent copy, very handsomely bound. With 24 steel-engraved plates by George Cruikshank. First one-volume edition. Dickens's second novel, Oliver Twist was first published serially between February 1837 and April 1839 in Bentley's Miscellany, and then as a three-volume book by Richard Bentley in 1838 (six months before the initial serialization was complete). This single volume was substantially revised by Dickens, who had bought back his copyright from Richard Bentley; many of his revisions were in the direction of a more dramatic rendering of the text, in light of his experience of public reading. Gimbel A39; Carr B98.
