    Charles Dickens. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. London: The Piccadilly Fountain Press, 1932. From the Library of Glenn Ford.

    First edition of a limited edition of 1,000 copies numbered and signed by John Harrison Stonehouse on a special limitation page bound in front of volume one. Two uniformly bound octavo volumes. xxix, 496; vii, 492. With forty-three illustrations by R. Seymour, R. W. Buss and 'Phiz'.

    Contemporary three-quarter binding with titles stamped in gilt in compartments between five raised bands on the spine. Top edge gilt. Light shelf wear and soiling to boards otherwise quite handsome externally. Contents fresh. Very good.

    This is a facsimile edition of Dickens' work with publisher's advertisements and facsimiles of the original blue wrap covers bound at the back of each volume. The Pickwick Papers were originally published in installments and it wasn't until 1837 that it was finally published in hardcover. From the library of American film actor Glenn Ford, with his armorial bookplate.
