Rickerby, London. 12mo. 8-1/4" x 5-1/2" The British populace exhibited little anger at the Army's 'miserable plight' in Crimea, as well as to the public exposure of the Administration's ineptitude leading to such a deplorable state. Dickens was "alarmed by the defeat abroad and apathy at home." This speech fulfilled Dickens' promise to speak on behalf of administrative reform. Uncommon in the original wrappers. Original printed self-wrappers, sewn. "Price Twopence." 1st edition (Eckel, p. 235; Fielding, SPEECHES, pp 197 - 208; Gimbel B-237). Not in Kitton's DICKENSIANA.
