The Virginians: A Tale of the Last Century, Parts 1-24, complete
Bradbury and Evans November 1857-September 1859, London - The complete 24 parts of Thackeray's serialized publication 'The Virginians', illustrated by the author himself. Very good in original yellow wrappers, contained in green cloth chemises, and housed in green full grain morocco slipcases. Slipcases in very good condition with sunning to the spines, but leather still fresh. The original issue in 24 monthly parts, the first of which appeared in November 1857, and last in September, 1859. The print-run of 20,000 for the first number proved to be too optimistic, and was progressively reduced to 13,000 by issue 17. Thackeray was originally to have been paid £300 per number, but the disappointing sales resulted in this being reduced to £250. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
