Charles Dickens - Little Dorrit - UK 1st 1st 1857 - ALL KNOWN ISSUE POINTS
Bradbury & Evans. Dickens, Charles - Little Dorrit - Bradbury and Evans: London, 1857 - First Edition / First Printing / First State - "1857" date present on the title page, three line errata on page xiv, "William" for "Frederick" error on page 317 line 27, page 371 reading "B2" instead of "BB2", page 467 with no errata, and with the "Rigaud" for "Blandois" errors on pages 469, 470, 472, and 473 as required in order to denote the first issue, of the first printing, of the first edition. "[Credit is a system whereby] a person who can't pay, gets another person who can't pay, to guarantee that he can pay." This example has been handsomely rebound, we assume recently, in three quarter leather over green cloth boards. The spine is tooled in gilt and has five raised bands. The end pages were redone when the book was rebound. The edges of the text block were originally marbled and there is still some evidence of that but they are largely faded and darkened. Internally the original text block is tanned, has scattered staining, and has soiling. All of the illustrated plates are present and firmly attached. A pleasing copy in handsome binding of Dicken's scathing indictment of debtors prisons. All books are offered with a full 30 day postage paid return policy. All books which are in dust jackets will be mailed with a clear archival dust jacket protector fitted. Shipping costs can be combined if multiple purchases are made. Items will be packaged and shipped within one business day unless otherwise noted. Please always feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. [Attribu … [Click Below for Full Description]
