Our Mutual Friend. In Two Volumes
London - Chapman and Hall, 1865 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The first edition of Dickens' last complete novel, Our Mutual Friend. Complete in two volumes. Bound from the parts. With forty illustrated plates by Marcus Stone, collated complete. The novel with its panoramic treatment of contemporary society, complex plotting, scathing social satire, and masterly emblematic art recalls both Bleak House and Little Dorrit. It differs from these predecessors in a number of important ways, however. Most notably, both of the love stories at the heart of the book (the earlier novels each have only one main love story) end on a very positive note -ODNB. Condition: In a Victorian calf binding. Externally, rubbed. The joints are starting. The front hinge of volume two is slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound, with foxing as usual and some marks. There are small tidemarks to the margins of the first 90 pages of volume one. Overall: GOOD..
