    Dickens in the Original Parts

    Charles Dickens. Dombey and Son. London: Bradbury and Evans, [1847-1848].

    First edition in parts. Octavo. With 40 illustrations by Phiz (These were supplemented by 12 extra plates, published in two numbers [No. I containing eight plates, and No. II with four plates] in 1848, by Chapman and Hall).

    Published in 20 [19] monthly parts in green wrappers, from October 1847 to April 1848, parts xix & xx forming a double number. The front wrapper of No. I has been replaced by a wrapper from part V, with the "V" erased and a "1" inked in, but retaining the tale-tale "February". Housed in a custom half leather slipcase and chemise with gilt spine titles. Noticeable wear to the wrappers. A few volumes rebacked. Some spines perished. Light scattered foxing. Overall, an about very good set of the Dickens' classic in a somewhat worn slipcase.
