PICTURES FROM ITALY
1846. hardcover. Dickens, Charles. PICTURES FROM ITALY. With Vignette Illustrations on Wood by Samuel Palmer. London: Published for the Author by Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated preliminary ads plus 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth. First Edition of Dickens's account of his 1844 tour of Italy. His description of the coaching trips which took him from place to place for five months is full of wonderful observations of his fellow-men... His account of a public execution in Rome is remarkable -- his emotional reaction is held firmly in control but revulsion at the whole proceeding is implicit in every line. [CGEL] Smith cites bindings both of fine-diaper cloth and of horizontally-ribbed cloth (no priority -- see his Note 3); there are also copies in vertically-ribbed cloth. This copy is in horizontally-ribbed cloth, and is in near-fine condition (volume slightly aslant, front endpaper slightly cracked, one small front-cover spot). PICTURES FROM ITALY used to be rather common, but attractive copies such as this are becoming increasingly scarce. Smith II pp 44-58.NONFICTION (Sumner & Stillman Code:11810)
