A Tale of Two Cities

Dickens, Charles

Original red cloth (first binding). Joints very slightly tender, light soiling. A very handsome copy in original, unrestored condition. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, FIRST BINDING, FIRST PRINTING (with page 213 mis-numbered 113 and sig. b present on the list of illustrations, points that were corrected in later copies of this edition). A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens's greatest and most-quoted novels. "The force of the novel springs from its exploration of darkness and death but its beauty derives from Dickens's real sense of transcendence, from his ability to see the sweep of destiny . . . this is what emerges most clearly from one of his shortest and most powerful novels" (Ackroyd). Dickens was emotionally vested in this great novel. He wrote, "It has had complete possession of me; I have so far verified what is done and suffered in these pages as that I have certainly done and suffered it all myself." The quality and strength of the prose is some of the finest he was ever to produce, for example, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known." This is the best copy we have seen. The novel's serialization in Dickens's weekly All the Year Round reduced the demand for the book and parts issues, and thus collectible copies are scarce. Provenance: Mrs. J. Insley Blair, Sotheby's, New York, 3 December 2004, lot 140.

[i-vii] viii [ix-x], [1] 2-254; Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz']. All eight of Smith's internal flaws necessary for the first issue present, including page 213 misnumbered 113. Publisher’s primary binding of deep red sand-grain cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Edges uncut. Cloth on boards is still a rich red. Housed in a full leather decorated red morocco clamshell case. An excellent copy. A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickens’s periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form mark Dickens’s return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans. The extremely large audience for the novel in All the Year Round, however, left less than the usual demand for the parts issue and, at first, for the book, both of which are now quite rare. This title also marks the author’s final collaboration with Phiz, Dickens’s most evocative and most sympathetic illustrator. Smith I, 13. Hatton and Cleaver, pp. 333-342.. 1st Edition. Hardcover.

London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. A Spectacular Copy In Original Green Cloth With 1859 Title-Page DICKENS, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. With Illustrations by H.K. Browne. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. First edition, second state with title-page still dated 1859 but with corrected pagination on page 213 and no signature "b" on the list of plates. Octavo. [i-vii]viii[ix-x], [1]2-254 pp. Sixteen inserted plates, including frontispiece and vignette title, by Browne ['Phiz']. Publisher's secondary binding of moderate olive green fine-diaper cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine lettered in gilt, original pale yellow coated endpapers. Boards remarkably fresh. Text and plates very clean and bright with just a minimal scattering of unobtrusive foxing. Just a tiny amount of wear to the top and bottom of the spine, inner hinges very expertly and almost invisibly strengthened. Armorial bookplate of Sir James Martin on front pastedown. A wonderful copy of this late novel, now extremely scarce in either of the original cloth bindings. This is by far the finest copy in original 'green' cloth of A Tale of Two Cities that we have ever seen, and although it is the 'secondary binding', it's superlative condition really does justify it's addition to any fine Dickens collection. Chemised in a full green morocco slip case. This is a true first edition, second state in the original olive-green cloth. The red cloth issue is usually regarded as the primary binding, but copies in the olive-green cloth with the title-page dated 1859 are considered very scarce. Copies in the green-cloth binding were thereafter issued with a title-page dated 1860. These are referred to as the 'third' issue. "In the very earliest state there are two pages numbered 113, page 213 furnishing the error. This was not corrected until some copies had been printed. The absence of this error does not necessarily invalidate a first edition, though the error is much preferred because it indicates a prior or earlier printing." Eckel pp. 86/87. A Tale of Two Cities was first serialized in Dickens's periodical All the Year Round, from April 30-November 26, 1859. Its appearance in monthly parts (July-December 1859) and book form marks Dickens's return to his old publishers Chapman and Hall, after a long stay with Bradbury and Evans.

A Tale of Two Cities

DICKENS, CHARLES

London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST BOOK EDITION, FIRST STATE, IN RARE ORIGINAL CLOTH of Dickens's historical masterpiece. An exceptional unrestored copy. "A Tale of Two Cities (serialized from 30 April to 26 November 1859)…was inspired by the story of the self-sacrificing lover Richard Wardour (Dickens's role) in The Frozen Deep. In this novel, the second half of which takes place during the French Revolution, Dickens set himself the task, he told Forster, 'of making a picturesque story, rising in every chapter with characters true to nature, but whom the story itself should express, more than they should express themselves, by dialogue', glossed by Forster as meaning that Dickens would be relying 'less upon character than upon incident' (Forster, 730, 731). In its tightly organized and highly romantic melodrama and the near-absence of typical 'Dickensian' humour and humorous characters, A Tale of Two Cities certainly stands apart from all his other novels, although-as in his earlier historical novel-one of the great set pieces of the book is the anarchic destruction of a prison, an event to which Dickens's imagination responded with powerful ambiguity" (Dictionary of National Biography). Complete with sixteen plates (including frontispiece and vignette title) by Phiz, and 32-page publisher's catalog. First state: with p.213 misnumbered 113, "affetcionately" on p.134 (line 12), et al. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth (first binding); early custom box. With royal bookplate of the Earl of Normanton on front pastedown and neat early signature (dated 1874) on front free endpaper. First gathering a little loose (as often), toning to spine and bottom edge of front board. Text and plates extremely clean. A bright, fresh copy in the rare original red cloth.

A Tale Of Two Cities

Dickens, Charles

London: Chapman & Hall, 1859 Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne. First edition, first issue, with page 213 incorrectly numbered, signature "b" present on the List of Plates (ix), and all other first issue points called for by Smith. Beautifully bound in 19th century three-quarter dark green morocco and green boards, with five raised bands to the spine, decorated and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, pale pink marbled endpapers. Very good or better, with light toning to the spine, some rubbing to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, spine very lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, spotting to the endpapers, frontispiece and vignette title page, some light and scattered spotting to the otherwise clean pages, bright plates lacking the usual toning. Overall, a handsome copy. Smith I 13. As Hatton and Cleaver note in their bibliography, A Tale of Two Cities has "practically no 'points' sufficiently outstanding to distinguish the earlier printings." However, both H&C and Smith agree that copies with the misprint on page 213 corrected and lacking the signature "b" on page ix are decidedly second printings. This copy does indeed have these points in the earliest state. A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens' most popular novels and begins with the iconic opening line "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." It tells the intertwined stories of several families in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution of 1788-1789; in his preface, Dickens explains his choice of the Revolution as a backdrop to his tale: "it has been one of my hopes to add something to the popular and picturesque means of understanding that terrible time." Prior to the publication of this first book edition, A Tale of Two Cities was published in Dickens' weekly journal All the Year Round from April-November 1859 and issued in eight monthly parts from June-December 1859. Notably, A Tale of Two Cities was the final collaboration between Dickens and his popular illustrator H. K. Browne (Phiz), whose collaboration spanned nearly a quarter of a century and produced ten major novels.. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

TALE OF TWO CITIES

Dickens Charles

London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, RARE issue with 1860 title and 213 numbered correctly. With 16 illustrations by H. K. Browne, including a frontispiece and vignette title page. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth. viii, 254 A very nice copy, very well preserved and with only light wear. VERY RARE AND ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE STATES OF THE FIRST EDITION. A handsome first edition in original cloth of Dickens’ great work about the terrors and turmoil of the French revolution. According to Jarndyce the 3rd issue has the date of 1860 on the title-page instead of 1859 and page 213 is numbered correctly. The green cloth binding is identical to the cloth of the 1859 issues. TALE OF TWO CITIES ranks amongst the most famous works in the history of literary fiction. It is one of only two works of historical fiction by Charles Dickens and stands out from most of Dickens's other novels as the one containing the least humour. That is not surprising, as the historical context of the novel, the French Revolution and Reign of Terror, were a bit bleak to allow for the wackier characters Dickens is known for. This fact has in no way impacted the novel’s popularity, it has never been out of print and by the start of the 21th century had sold an estimated 200 million copies worldwide.

A Tale of Two Cities.

Dickens, Charles

London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, first issue of one of Dickens' most enduring work, with p. 213 misnumbered "113," the signature mark "b" at the foot of the plate list, and the misspelling "affetcionately" on line 12, p. 134. Octavo, bound in three quarters contemporary calf over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers. Sixteen plates after H.K. Browne including frontispiece and title vignette. In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear, bookplate. An exceptional example of this Dickens classic. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.
