The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (with 26 Mounted Photographs)

London: Chapman and Hall, 1890. R. Seymour and "Phiz" Full leather. A wonderful Presentation copy of this 1890 re-issue, bound (and signed by the binder) in full calf by Morrell of London. Included with this copy are 26 mounted photographs (most of them signed by the actors) of characters from a local production of "The Pickwick Papers", put on by the "Ipswich (Suffolk, England) Presbyterian Acting Guild". There's also a bound-in Presentation page, thanking a Mr. Herbert Walker for his 4 years of leadership and signed by the members of the Ipswich Presbyterian Guild. A clean, very sharp copy to boot. Tight and VG+ to Near Fine, with very light scuffing to the front panel, mild wear at the foot of the spine and very light foxing internally (though not affecting the plates at all) and along the fore-edge. Thick octavo, nicely illustrated thruout (in addition to the 26 photos) by R. Seymour and "Phiz" Very Good +. Item #13277
