Dark green cloth bindings, beveled board edges, gilt lettering to spines and fronts, embossed black panel decorations to boards and spines, blind embossed on rear sides. Plain endpapers. In very good conditions. Covers very bright and clean, some minor rubbing and bumps to corners, some minor handling marks to a couple of boards, else overall covers very clean and smart. Some mild tanning to endpapers, one or two very minor and scarce foxing spots, else pages and plates all very clean, bright and tight. In some volumes (such as ‘American Notes’) pages still remain uncut and unread. A beautiful set of this legendary British Author. With B&W illustrations by Phiz &c. The collection comprises all the minor writings it was Mr. Dicken's wish to preserve. It is printed on a finer paper and in a larger type than has been employed in any previous edition. The type has been cast especially for it, and the page is of size to admit of the introduction of all the original illustrations.
