A Child’s History of England.
First editions in book form of Dickens’s History of England for children; each work originally appeared anonymously in Household Words between January 1851 and December 1853, and each published in book form in the December of those years, post-dated to the following years.
3 volumes, duodecimo. Original red cloth, gilt titles and decoration to spine, blind stamped border and gilt pictorial decoration to front board, marbled endpapers and edges. Each volume with the half titles and engraved frontispieces by F. W. Topham. Spines slightly faded, a couple of ink splashes to covers, small puncture to spine of Vol. III, minor wear to spine ends and tips, some pencilled notes and the odd spot of foxing to contents. A very good set.
