Little Dorrit

DICKENS, Charles

Once a gentleman, and always a gentleman.

DICKENS, Charles Little Dorrit

Bradbury & Evans, 1857.

First edition, first state with signature 'B 2' for '2B2'. Finely bound by Bayntun in recent full red morocco, with raised bands, gilt borders to covers and titles to spine. Gilt cartouche depicting Dickens in an oval frame to the upper cover and his signature embossed in gilt to the lower cover. All edges gilt. Twenty full page illustrations by H. K. Browne. A fine, clean copy in a handsome binding.

The last of Dickens's novels to be issued by Bradbury & Evans, it received poor reviews at the time of publication, although it has found admirers amongst modern critics. It is notable for Dickens's satire of the debtors' prison and the British Treasury (figured as the bungling Circumlocution Office).
