The Dogs in Dickens - First Privately Printed Edition

£29.99

Product description

This delightful and unusual book focuses specifically on the dogs featured in the novels of Charles Dickens - nine named characters, as well as various others mentioned in passing.  With snippets of text quoted from the novels, this offers a sideways view of the great writer's work. 

Cumberland Clark (1862-1941), was a literary critic and prolific writer, producing historical books on Shakespeare and Dickens, political tracts (pro-Empire, and anti-communist), numerous songbooks and several dramas.

Our copy is in good condition, one of a privately printed edition dated 1926.  Bound in fine blue cloth with  title etc in gilt lettering to the spine & front board.  Only light signs of wear externally - minimal bumping of corners and a little wear to top & tail of spine;  one or two pale marks on the front and a slightly faded band at the top of the front cover.  Inside, the endpapers are a little browned, binding is firm with no loose pages, and pages are clean and bright.  Pages 57-62 are a little torn at the top spine angle, possibly as a result of being cut (all edges roughcut).
