The Cricket on the Hearth. A Fairy Tale of Home.

DICKENS Charles (1846.)

£1000.00  [First Edition]

Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

First edition. 8vo. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt. London, Bradbury & Evans.

This copy has the ad leaf in the second and usual state, with "No. I. of" on a line by itself. A handsome unworn copy, with a few tiny ink stains on the front cover, and a large and ungainly bookplate, the offence of which is doubled by matching glue residue on the lower paste-down suggesting that it had originally been placed there. Podeschi A92. In a marbled paper and red morocco folding case.
