Chapman and Hall, 1861. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good / No Jacket. Item #107909
First edition, volume one is first issue (or edition), volume two is third issue or edition, and volume 3 is the second issue or edition. It is believed the first five issues were all printed at the same time, but the title pages were changed to say later editions to indicate rapid sales. Rebound in quarter leather and marbled paper. There were only 1,000 copies of the true first edition, represented by the first edition of volume one here. Very good condition. Housed in a custom-made collector's clamshell case with leather spine and gold tooling and lettering.
