VERY GOOD CONDITION

 

This sale is for a large size quality vintage FIRST FOLIO SOCIETY EDITION entitled “The Adventures of Oliver Twist,” by Charles Dickens, with an Introduction by Christopher Hibbert and numerous drawings by Charles Keeping, including a frontispiece.

 

It was published by The Folio Society, of London, and is the 1984 FIRST FOLIO SOCIETY EDITION.

 

The classic story is about the orphan Oliver Twist, who escapes from a workhouse and travels to London where, naively unaware of their unlawful activities, he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets, and their elderly criminal trainer Fagin.

 

This was the second novel by Charles Dickens (1812-1870), arguably the best English novelist of the Victorian era, as well as being a vigorous social campaigner and was one of the greatest ever writers.  He was most famous for his storytelling and numerous memorable characters, and achieved massive worldwide popularity in his lifetime.

 

The book measures 9.5 inches x 6.5 inches (a little bigger in its slipcase) and has 380 pages (including illustrations). 

 

The book is in very good clean and neat condition.  The binding is very good with no loose or missing pages.  There are NO inscriptions/book-plates and NO other ink or pencil markings in the book.  The slipcase is in very good condition for its age, and is a little faded.

 

A wonderful illustrated quality vintage FIRST FOLIO SOCIETY EDITION.
