Centennial Edition of the Complete Works of Charles Dickens: 36 Volumes

Charles Dickens

Heron 1967

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Near Fine  | 

The complete 36 Volume set of Charles Dickens' collected works. Attractive green leatherette covers with gilt lettering and design. Raised bands. Decorative endpapers. Frontis portrait. Silken ribbon-markers. A general introduction by J.B. Priestly. Each volume has it's own introduction and is complete with illustrations from the original editions by such artists as Phiz and George Cruikshank. As well as all the novels (usually in two volumes) the set contains all of his short stories, travel writing, poems and miscellaneous papers. Some titles still contain the publisher's inlay detailing when, where and how it was written and it's significance within Dickens' oeuvre. A tremendous set of this popular edition. Aside from very slight dulling to the gilt on spine on two volumes and a couple of instances of very, very minor shelfwear, its condition is almost impeccable. There is no foxing, the covers are a deep, rich green and the contents are crisp and white. One of the best such sets we've ever had.
