For sale is a rare three-volume (bound as two) set of the first issue/first edition of the original parts of Master Humphrey's Clock, by Charles Dickens. Published by Chapman and Hall, London, 1840-41. Comprising; Master Humphrey's Clock, Barnaby Rudge and The Old Curiosity Shop. All of Smith's first issue errors here present.

Bound in contemporary brown calf over marbled boards. The spines, tooled in gilt, showing bands ruled in gilt. Original marbled endpapers.

Externally they are tired order; calf lacking in places, title labels lacking, rubbing and bumping. The hinges tight and the gutters sound. Internally, beautifully clean for the most part, with only a jot of very minor and occasional spotting.

Overall, this is a scarce opportunity to own an original and unrestored first issue of this popular title in the Dickens collection, bound in their original bindings, one of the cleaneast sets we have handled, and certainly worthy of restoration/re-binding.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
