Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Illustrated with 8 plates by George Cruikshank.

Oliver Twist is the second novel by Charles Dickens, originally published by Richard Bentley in 1838. The story is about an orphan, Oliver Twist, who endures a  miserable existence in a workhouse and then is placed with an undertaker. He escapes and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of  juvenile pickpockets. Naïvely unaware of their unlawful activities, Oliver is led to the lair of their elderly criminal trainer Fagin...

Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens's unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives. The book exposed the cruel treatment of the many orphans in London  during the Dickensian era.

This edition is a volume from the publisher's signature edition of Dickens' works. There is no publishing date, however circa 1890. A gorgeous, elegant full leather  binding, finished to a high quality with gilt tooling.



Postage & Packaging

I am a bookseller based in the South West of England. I have over ten years experience of operating on eBay, and post items to every corner of the globe, without  exception. Once you have paid for your book it will be despatched to you on the next available posting day.

My aim is to get your book to you promptly and above all safely, without damage. Books are firstly wrapped in strong protective bubble wrap before being mailed  in a bespoke card book mailer, for the majority of books. Large volumes and sets will be mailed in very strong hand cut card  boxes. Being a bibliophile myself I completely understand what a precious item a book is, and I understand therefore how to handle a book carefully and treat it with  the reverence it deserves.

The postage charge I quote always reflects the genuine cost of posting & packaging the book. The heavier the book, the higher the charge. I usually quote prices for  the standard service available, i.e. Second Class / Standard Parcel for the UK, Airmail for the Rest of the World. I can offer other services such as Recorded &  Insured deliveries, and usually do so as a matter of course for books of higher value. Please e-mail me if you have any special postage  requirements and I will do my best to accomodate your needs.

Postage & Packing Charges for this item in UK POUNDS STERLING
(if buying from outside the UK this charge will be automatically converted into your local currency by eBay using the current exchange rate)

Bidders Please Note: If you are the winning bidder for more than one of my auctions combined shipping is available . I will re-calculate shipping costs so please wait for your invoice so that you can receive the discount.


Payment

My preferred method of payment is Paypal, and Paypal is the only method of payment I will accept from buyers who are not  resident in the United Kingdom (i.e. not resident in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland).

From UK buyers only I will also accept Personal Cheques and Postal Orders. If paying by either of these  methods your package will take a little longer to reach you as it will be despatched only when funds clear.


Returns Policy

I aim to make my listings as clear as possible, with comprehensive condition descriptions and clear photographs. If anything in my condition ratings I will tend to  down rate a book rather than run the risk of being misleading. However I do accept that, on the rare occasion, a customer will not be satisfied for whatever reason and  will want to return a book for a refund. I am happy to accept returns, within the reasonable conditions stated below. I am always happy to communicate with customers  to resolve any problem, so please do not hesitate to contact me for clarification on any point, or to resolve any issue.

  • Returns will be accepted  within 30 days from the day the item is delivered to the customer.

  • The item must be returned in the condition in which it was received, therefore should be adequately packaged. 

  • The buyer will bear the cost of the return posting and packing.

  • If the above criteria are met, a full refund will be made of the original cost of the item, but not of the original postage charge.

  • If the item is found to be, upon delivery to the customer, defective, then a full refund including the original postage cost will be offered. The customer will remain responsible for the cost of returning the item.


  • Definitions of the Condition of a Book

    Aa a reputable online book seller, I use the Independent Online Bookseller's Association guidelines on how to describe a book's condition. Below is an explanation of  each rating.

    MINT (M): Without faults or defects, unread, in the same immaculate condition in which it was published (Note: very few 'new'  books qualify for this grade, as many times there will be rubs/scuffs to the dustjackets from shipping, or bumped lower spine ends/corners from shelving). 

    FINE (F): Approaches the above, but not crisp. May have been carefully read and dustjacket may have been slightly rubbed or spine ends slightly bumped from  shelving/shipping, but no real defects or faults.

    (NOTE: From here on, there may be '+' and '-' in a grade, which will mean that it is above the grade noted but not quite to the next higher grade for '+', and that it  is below the grade noted but not quite to the next lower grade for '-'. 

    NEAR FINE: A book or dustjacket approaching FINE but with a couple of very minor  defects or faults.

    VERY GOOD: A used book showing some small signs of wear on either binding or dustjacket. Any defects/faults must be noted.

    GOOD: The average used and worn book that has all pages or leaves present. Any defects must be noted.

    FAIR: A worn book that has complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title page, etc. (which must be noted).  Binding, dustjacket, etc. may also be worn. All defects/faults must be noted.

    POOR / READING COPY: A book that is sufficiently worn that its only merit is the complete text, which must be legible. Any missing maps or plates should still  be noted. May be soiled, scuffed, stained, or spotted, and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc.

    EX-LIBRARY: Will always be designated as such no matter what the condition of the book.

    BOOK CLUB: Will always be noted as such no matter what the condition of the book.

      BINDING COPY: A book in which the pages or leaves are perfect but the binding is very bad, loose, off, or non-existent.

    Always, if issued with one, the lack of a dustjacket or slipcase will be noted.

    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.
