ALL THE YEAR ROUND. A Weekly Journal / Volume XIX from Dec. 14, 1867, to June 6, 1868 / Volume XX from June 13 to Nov. 28, 1868.
The Author & Chapman & Hall, London 1868 - Royal 8vo, Pagination: Volume XIX, pp. iv, 73-620; volume XX, pp. [iv], 596; with a separate Table of Contents for each volume. "All the Year Round" was a British weekly literary magazine founded, owned and edited by Charles Dickens and, after the author's death in June, 1870, by his son Charles Dickens (Jr.). It continued publishing until 1895. Many famous novels were serialized in its pages, including Dicken's "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Great Expectations", and "The Woman in White" and "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins. Our offering is the last volume in the "old series" (although it was not officially designated as such) before Dickens instituted a "New Series", the announcement of which is contained on the last page of this volume. Also contained within this volume is the first appearance in print of what T. S. Eliot called "the first and greatest of English detective novels", "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins (See issue of January 4, 1868, for the first installment and the issue of August 8, 1868, for the last installment. It was first published in book form, later in the year, by Tinsley Brothers, London). The binding is rubbed at the extremities and across the spine. The front endpapers have separated but the binding is tight. Occasional marginal foxing but generally the contents are very clean. Overall, a tight copy in good, to good plus, condition. Nicely bound in contemporary 3/4 leather over "pebbled" cloth [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
