Dickens' First (1st) Edition, Bleak House, 1853

This is a nice first edition of Charles Dickens' "Bleak House." It was published in London in 1853. The binding is full morocco, and is proven to be a first edition by the existence of the word 'relieved' on p. 620 as a typo for 'recieved" (sic). There are 39 plates, (illustrated by H.K. Browne. The plates are foxed, which is quite usual for a binding of this age. The binding is in excellent condition, the endpapers are marbled, and the edges are gilded. The book measures 8 and 1/2 inches North to South, and 5 and 1/2 inches East to West.
