For sale is an exceptionally rare first issue/first edition of the original parts of Dombey and Son, by Charles Dickens. Published by Bradbury and Evans, London, 1848. A complete suite of plates by Phiz. Bound in fine contemporary tan calf by Nutt and Son of London. Exquisite gilt tooling to the spine and boards of the highest quality.
The title in gilt to a black morocco label. Marbled endpapers and gilt page edges. Externally the calf is largely bright. The hinges very nice and firm.
Internally it is refreshingly clean to the text and one of the cleanest examples we have handled, with only the occasional spot. Overall, to find such an example in the early state of this title is indeed rare. One of the best-loved works of the C19th, this fine and scarce example would grace any collection, and it comes highly recommended. Further images are also available upon request.
