NO NAME. In Three Volumes
London:: Sampson Low Son & Co.,. 1862.. Post 8vo. 8-1/8" x 5". 1st book edition (NCBEL III, 925; Parrish, pp. 45-46; Sadleir 601; Wolff 1371). 3 volumes (ix, [1], 339, [1 (blank)]; [4], 363, [1 (blank)]; [2], 408 pp).. Original publisher's orange-scarlet morocco cloth binding with gilt stamped titling to spine & boards stamped in blind. Ivory eps. Binder's ticket for 'Bone & Son / 76 Fleet Street / London'.. Volumes a bit cocked, with slightly darkened spines. Hinges starting. in Vols I & II. A few circular [1 cm] glue remnants to eps. All-in-. all, a respectable VG set in the original cloth, and scarce thus.. If convoluted & melodramatic Victorian tripe is your cup of tea, you'll love this Collins' story, which has plenty of all these elements. First appearing serially in Dickens' weekly periodical 'All the Year Round', this 'triple decker', issued in December 1862 & prior to the January serial conclusion, is the first book publication. As Sutherland states in Victorian Fiction, "The novel is principally attractive for it's resourceful and near-criminal heroine."
