Dickens, Charles
Great Expectations in All the Year Round: A Weekly Journal
London: Chapman and Hall, 1860-1861. First Edition. First edition in the original weekly numbers. 36 issues comprising nos. 84-119. Unbound self-wrappers, as issued by the publisher, sold at 2d. (These issues would be collected in fours and bound in blue wrappers as nine parts in a slightly more common, presumably later binding state.) Near Fine, generally clean and bright, with a few stains to no. 84, age-toning to certain issues, stain in nos. 115-116, mild ripple to leaves, occasional minor creases or fore-edge tears. Issue 119 spine worn. Presented in green cloth-covered clamshell box with paper spine label. A complete collection of the serialized novel Great Expectations. Dickens was editing the journal All the Year Round but circulation was flagging. He realized that if he wanted something done right, he'd have to do it himself, so he ran his own novel to get more readers. Especially rare in such nice condition. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]
