Charles Dickens: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (London: Chapman and Hall, 1837), first edition, later issue (has the note at the foot of page 9, "&c." instead of "of" at the top of page 26, and "S. Veller" at p. 342, but also "his friends" at page 400, "F" intact in headline of page 342, and "Weller" in the signpost of the engraved title page where the earliest editions have "Veller."), 609 pages, modern half leather binding with gilt spine titles and decorative flourish, 8vo (5.5" x 8.75"). Marbled endpapers and edges. Illustrated by R. Seymour and Phiz. The book is in very good condition, with some rubbing to the edges, corners, and spine, and noticeable foxing to the engraved pages of the textblock. Overall, a beautiful edition of a Dickens classic.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
