    Charles Dickens. The Nonesuch Dickens. Bloomsbury: The Nonesuch Press, 1937-1938. First Nonesuch edition, limited to 877 sets; limitation determined by the number of original illustrated plates used in the first editions by Chapman and Hall, and each set includes a steel or wood block plate. This set includes the steel plate for the engraved title-page of Dickens's first book, Sketches by Boz, originally published in 1836. Twenty-three large octavo volumes, with steel plate housed in matching clamshell case; "A Note on the Format" pamphlet laid in. Publisher's buckram, black morocco gilt-lettered labels affixed to spines; top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Occasional light rubbing, worse on the plate case; some backstrips only slightly faded. Each free endpaper soiled with cellophane tape residue, with some offsetting opposite, at corners. A near fine collection with a significant steel plate.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
