Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty
London: Chapman and Hall, [1841]. - FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. Octavo. With textual engravings by George Cattermole and Hablot K. Brown ('Phiz'). Smith's later issue with Piccadilly address shown on an undated title page and imprint as 'Bradbury Evans and Co., Printers, Whitefriars'; bound in the secondary olive green fine-diaper cloth, gilt-lettered to spine with covers stamped in blind, coated yellow endpapers (Smith notes 'plain' endpapers). "This separate issue is created from portions of Master Humphrey's Clock, the numbering of the pagers therefore being occasionally defective" i.e. bound with unaltered stereotype sheets from the original triple-decker, albeit with a new title page and 'Advertisement' leaf. Contents clean but for the occasional spot or mark; board edges worn, cloth rubbed at joints and a little frayed in places, spine ends show some wear. Very good overall. Smith 6A - see Note 4. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
