About This Item

London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1860. First edition. Leather bound. 760pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] 3/4 brown leather with marbled paper over boards, gilt lettering on the spine, and gilt stamped and embossed borders on the spine and covers. Marbled text block edges and endpapers. Very good condition. The boards are rubbed, the pages have sporadic light foxing, and the illustrations are occasionally subtly offset. The threads are visible in the inside margins here and there, however the book is still very sturdy. All of the illustrations are present, two of them with tissue guards. An early volume of The Cornhill Magazine, one the most important Victorian periodicals of the latter part of the nineteenth century, founded by George Smith in 1860. The Cornhill Magazine maintained a high level of literary distinction, publishing novels by William Makepeace Thackeray, Anthony Trollope, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy and Henry James.
