Blue cloth with gilt titles and illustrations. Sunned spine along with general edge, corner and surface wear. Some small scuffs on front hinge but no parting. Light interior toning. Appears to be printed on hand-laid paper. Title page in green type. No date but ca. 1897.; B&W Illustrations; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 128 pages; I collated this copy with a copy on line. This copy does not have four pages of ads in the rear. I cannot determine if the first printing had the ads or not. I see no evidence of remov al of the ads. Also, in this copy, between pp. 78 and 79 there is a facsimile of the original title page of The Pickwick Papers, that is not in the on-line copies. Finally, this copy comes with ten 5 X 7 1/2, B&W illustrations from The Pickwick Papers plus a small card that reads, "Purchased at the Old Curiosity Shop," and another small presentation card with an illustration from, "Dickens' Old Curiosity Shop." Interesting book about Dickens and his world with accompanying ephemera.
