PICTURES FROM ITALY
1846. hardcover. a fine, bright copyDickens, 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 -- and this is such a copy. Condition is remarkably fine and bright -- essentially no wear other than a mildly-bumpred fore-corner, the original endpapers present and uncracked, no foxing on the leaves within. PICTURES FROM ITALY is not a particularly scarce book, but fine copies such as this have become quite scarce. Smith II pp 44-58. Housed in a full morocco clamshell case. NONFICTION (Sumner & Stillman Code:12041)
