Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club 1838 Charles Dickens leather illustrated
The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club
By Charles Dickens
Illustrated with 54 Engravings by R. Seymor, Phiz and Crowquill
Issued New York, 1838 by James Turney.
Period black 1/4 leather binding, smooth spine gilt ruled into compartments, gilt spine lettering, marbled boards, engraved half title, several charming full-page engraved illustrations throughout.
In poor condition. Both boards detached, heavily scuffed, rubbed and edge-worn. Spine leather dried, chipping and cracked, spine ends chipped and frayed. Textblock lightly toned throughout with some gentle to light scattered spotting and foxing throughout -- hardly offensive.
Overall sound and despite any flaws, still a nice old book well worthy of ownership.
We've done our best to photograph the book so you can see the condition and we've tried to mention any flaws or issues.
Measures c. 6" W x 9 1/4" H.

SHIPPING & TERMS: We are happy to combine shipping on multiple items! Please request a combined invoice before making payment.
If the calculated shipping on a single item seems high, please feel free to request an invoice before making payment and we'll calculate the correct shipping cost for you.
Please be aware that we do not make a profit on shipping and try to keep the cost as low as possible for our customers while still remaining within PayPal and eBay requirements. When you take into account the cost of supplies, labor and the fees that eBay now charges us on the shipping paid by our customers, we generally take a loss on shipping.
BUYER'S OUTSIDE THE USA PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING: All orders must be shipped with delivery confirmation. This is available for most domestic shipping options but is only available on Priority and Express mail shipping for international orders.
Import duties, taxes, and customs fees are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are normally collected by the shipping service when the package is delivered or when you pick the item up. They are the buyer's responsibility and are not are not additional shipping charges. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.

ANTIQUE ITEMS AS REPRESENTED: Brian DiMambro is an established, full time antiquarian dealer in old, fine, and rare maps and books with 25+ years of experience.
Please know that we absolutely never attempt to mis-represent what we are offering. Almost everything we sell is 100 or more years old and antique items can be challenging to describe. We take multiple pictures for every item, and we do our best to mention & describe the item in a way which accurately and fully conveys what it is and how it survives. We're never trying to hide anything or deceive you, since you'll be receiving the item and can inspect it.
It is possible we can occasionally overlook or miss something, fail to mention something, etc., but it is never done intentionally and we are always willing to take something back if our description somehow omits mentioning something which can reasonably considered a note-worthy fault or defect (old book plates at the front of books do not count here). If we notice something overlooked in the listing before shipment we will contact you before shipping your order.
Describing the condition of antique items is always a bit subjective; everyone attaches different levels of importance to different issues. We tell you all this to explain our approach to describing our items. We try hard to make sure that when our customers receive their order they are happy with it and this is indeed usually the outcome.
Most people who buy from us are very happy when the item arrives and often feel we have undersold the item- that it is in fact nicer than we said and nicer than it appears on the screen.
Even after the sale, we're here for you. We want you to come back and become a regular customer and tell your friends about us. _________________________________________________________________
We hope you find us friendly and reasonable. We're confident you'll be pleased with the item and the transaction. If you are ever unhappy for any reason, please email us before you leave feedback! We will work with you and you will leave us happy!
