Daniel Deronda.
- Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1876. Four Volumes. First book edition. Contemporary half-calf & green cloth, all edges marbled, spines titled in gilt on panels of red. The inner front covers of all four volumes bear the decorative armorial bookplate of Joseph Needham, M.B., Assistant Professor of Anatomy, University of Aberdeen [the father, we believe, of the noted 20th century British scientist Joseph Needham]; all volumes also bear the binder's ticket from A. Brown & Co., Aberdeen. Splitting along the lower rear hinge of Volume 1, moderate scuffing and wear to the leather corners and edges, some inner hinges are cracking, but all are intact; in general quite a handsome set, the spines titled in script. This copy conforms to the first issue as described in Sadleir 813a; all four volumes have the initial signature of 4 leaves, not 6 as in the second issue. Also (though not mentioned by Sadleir) the misprint is present on page 83 of Volume I: ("reponsive" for "responsive"). It is bound without the erratum slip in Volume III, and without the final ad leaf in Volume IV. Half-title leaves are present in all 4 volumes. The book was first issued in paperbound parts, and most bound copies which surface are comprised of those parts bound-up; this copy is the first book edition, not bound from parts. An attractive copy of this significant novel. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
