Notes

Edition de luxe of The Gadshill edition. Limited edition, number 126 of 130 sets. The Gadshill Edition, printed from the edition carefully corrected by the author in 1867 and 1868 and with an introduction by Andrew Lang, considered one of the best editions of the collected works of Charles Dickens. Often found with just the 34 volumes, this has the miscellaneous papers added to it as well as John Forster's, The Life of Dickens. This set includes, tipped-in on the first blank of Volume I an interesting autograph letter signed by Charles Dickens dated Friday 16th December 1859, written on his Tavistock House letterhead in which he is declining an invitation.
