About This Item

Charles Dickens. The Nonesuch Press, London, 1937 - 1939, 23 volumes and a book-form case (titled "Plate"), containing a woodcut plate entitled "Leaving the Old Curiosity Shop," drawn by George Cattermole for Chapman & Hall, Ltd., a print of the woodcut, and letter from Chapman & Hall guaranteeing the plate's authenticity. Edited by Arthur Waugh, Hugh Walpole, Walter Dexter and Thomas Hatton. Limited to 877 copies, a limitation based on the number of illustrations in the first editions of Dickens, where each set received one of the 877 illustration wood or steel blocks. Each volume with the Ex Libris bookplate of Carlotta and Eugene O'Neill. Carlotta's fourth marriage was to O'Neill; his third marriage. O'Neill had instructed his publisher to wait 25 years after his death before publishing Long Day's Journey Into Night, however, Carlotta took the play to another publisher, whereupon it was published less than 18 months after O'Neill died. The play was produced in 1956 on Broadway and won a Pulitzer Prize for O'Neill posthumously. Bold variant buckram binding, leather title plate at spine. In good condition, rubbing.
