A rare find from 1906. The first edition of Charles Dickens' "Sketches of Young Couples" in original box. There are no tears, stains or damage to any of the pages. The spine is perfect. The cover is suede with the back being a brighter green than the front, presumably from handling and environmental exposure over time. It's in exceptional condition at 110 years old.
The Cambridge Chronicle wrote about the book in the November 17, 1906 edition of the newspaper. A screen shot of the newspaper article is included with this listing. It reads, in part, the book "is the first time these sketches have been issued in a book by themselves".
