The Works. In Thirty Volumes.
London: Chapman and Hall Limited, 1881–82 - 30 volumes, quarto (262 x 180 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco by Zaehnsdorf, spines lettered in gilt, marbled sides, top edges gilt. Slight marking to spines, slight foxing to edges and contents. An excellent set. Facsimiles of original blue wrappers of the parts bound in at the start of each novel, illustrations laid down on India proof paper, some handcoloured, by Robert Seymour, George Cruikshank, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), George Cattermole and John Leech, amongst others. Limited edition, number 992 of 1,000 copies only. Out of the many collected works of Dickens which were published in the late 19th century, the present edition has good claim to be the largest, boldest and most striking.
