PICTURES FROM ITALY
1846 - London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original blind-stamped 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]~This copy is in the primary (fine-diaper cloth) binding; copies were also issued in ribbed cloth of the same color. This is a very good copy, with little wear but with some soil on the covers; the endpapers are old but not original. The front flyleaf bears the penciled signature of Walter Smith, bibliographer of Dickens. Smith II pp 44-58. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA]]
