Charles Dickens was one of Britain’s greatest writers. In 1848 a full edition of his novel Dombey and Son was published. It tells the story of a wealthy man, Paul Dombey, and the trials and tribulations he faces as a result of his desire to have a son and the effect it has on his daughter Florence.

Title: Dombey and Son
Author: Charles Dickens
Publisher: Thomas Nelson and Sons LTD
Publication Year: 1910’s
Pages: 933
Size: 11cm x 15.9cm

This book has gorgeous dark red leather covers with the title and left embellishment on the spine in gilt embossing. The spine is faded to a lighter red colour, but the covers are nice and clean and beautifully soft. There is some slight cracking in the spine but the binding is secure and the pages are all present and are clean.

There is one black and white picture opposite the title page, with a piece of tissue paper between the pages to protect the image. There is a handwritten note in the inside of the first page which reads “M Wild April 27th 1918 from M.A.P D.G”. While there is no publication date in the book itself, the dedication date suggests this book was published some time in the 1910s.

This really is a lovely book, just holding it is a pleasure because of the fantastic condition of the leather (or possibly vellum?) boards. It would be a wonderful addition to the bookshelf of any literature lover.
