Description

    Charles Dickens: Original Serialized First Edition of Our Mutual Friend (London: Chapman and Hall, May 1864 to November 1865), first edition, twenty parts in 19 volumes, various paginations, original blue-green illustrated wrappers, 8vo (5.25" x 8.5"), housed in a red cloth fold-over slipcase. Forty plates with illustrations by Marcus Stone, engraved by Dalziel and W. T. Green. Part 1 is in the first state, with no printer's imprint and the Fry's advertisement at rear reading "Homoepathic Cocoa" on yellow paper. Part 1 lacks the first leaf of advertisements and the ad for "Churchman's" at the rear. The most advertisement-heavy among Dickens' serialized works. The serialized first offering of Dicken's classic, overall in very good condition. Part 1 is slightly worn than the other installments, with a slightly faded cover. All display wear along the fore-edge, but are overall very attractive and rare in this condition. The slipcase has one detached edge held together with clear tape, and moderate soiling to the boards.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
