DICKENS, Charles Oliver Twist or The Parish Boy's Progress

Bradbury & Evans, 1846.

First one volume edition. Original blue-grey cloth with blind ornamental border to the covers and gilt wreath vignette to the upper cover. Titles and three pictorial scenes from the book in gilt to the spine. Twenty-four steel engravings by George Cruikshank. A fine copy, bright and crisp with barely a hair out of place. Internally clean with just slight browning to the edges of some of the plates. An exceptional copy. Housed in quarter morocco, clamshell case.

Dickens's second novel, originally published in three volumes in 1838. Such was its popularity that Dickens was persuaded by his new publishers to revise the work and have it issued in a single volume with new illustrations.
Uncommon in cloth, particularly so well preserved.
