    A Nearly Complete Set of the Original Parts

    Charles Dickens. Little Dorrit. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: 1857. First edition, in original monthly parts: twenty numbers bound in nineteen, in the original blue printed wrappers. Octavo. [ i-v]vi-vii[viii-ix]x-xii[xiii] xiv, [1]2-625[626]. Forty inserted plates by "Phiz." Collates nearly complete with all wrappers correct, all Advertisers, all back ads, and all slips, but with the following exceptions: part II lacks the "Desk Directory" slip; part XIII lacks the "New Serial Work" slip and the twenty-four page "Christmas and Winter" slip is torn out with part of it remaining. This title has two extra slips for Menzies Publishing, laid-in (not called-for). Advertiser in part I is bound out of sequence. First state text in XV with "Rigaud" for "Blandois." As usual, parts rubbed and somewhat worn, with some moderate foxing and minor soiling (except for the last four parts, which have major soiling to the upper portion of wrappers, ads and text), most parts have an ink signature on the front wrapper. Still, a very good set, housed in cloth clamshell case.
    Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 305-333.
