London (May 1849 - November 1850): Bradbury and Evans. First Edition. Original Wraps. Item #09608

Annotated by Dickens bibliographer Thomas Hatton on page 15 of the part XIX/XX Advertiser: "D. C. 19/20;" together with an autograph note concerning part XIX/XX: "20 / plates to end of text." ALL wrappers are correct. ALL Advertisers, slips and ads are present and in accord with the Hatton & Cleaver bibliography, with the following exception: part VIII is lacking the scarce Lett's Diary ad and Part XII is lacking the "Visit to the Exhibition...." slip. Twenty (20) monthly parts in 19; octavo, with 40 inserted plates, including the frontis and vignette title. [i-vii]viii[ix]x-xii[xiii]xiv[xv-xvi], [1]2-624. The plates are very good to fine; tissue guards are in place. Most parts have spines expertly renewed. Light soiling to a few wrappers. The text is UNOPENED (therefore unread) in parts VII and X. Subscriber name on front wrap of parts II, VII, VIII and XVIII - bookseller ticket on part IX. Part VII front wrap with small professional repair in lower margin; part VIII rear wrap is remargined and first leaf of Advertiser with small loss at lower gutter. Parts X and XIX/XX with professional corner repair to rear wraps. Internally clean and bright. An outstanding set in every respect and with a pedigree - it is from the famed (Thomas) Hatton and Cleaver collection. Housed in a handsome, green quarter leather slipcase, with chemise and armorial bookplate. Provenance: The Hatton & Cleaver collection, the Heritage Bookshop, Charles Parkhurst Rare Books, Inc. Hatton & Cleaver, pp. 253-272.
