    [Charles Dickens]. Macready's Reminiscences, and Selections from His Diaries and Letters. Edited by Sir Frederick Pollock. London: Macmillan and Co., 1875.

    First edition. Two octavo volumes. xii, 476 and x, 486 pages, respectively.

    Later black half leather binding with gray cloth boards and gilt titles and decorations on the spine. Marbled edges and endpapers. Moderate shelf wear. Some rubbing and soiling of the boards. Previous owner's inventory sticker affixed to the front pastedown. Textblock is very clean, bright, and tight. Very good condition overall.

    A close friend of Charles Dickens and many other literary greats of the time, William Macready was very much involved in the active literary and theatrical scene of the 19th century. Dickens held a lively correspondence with him, even in Dickens' early years of literary success. In fact, the correspondence between the great author and Macready and to John Forster in 1842, during Dickens' visit to America, make up the bulk of Dickens' American Notes. From the H. Barry Morris Collection.
