First edition, first printing of ''Bleak House'' by Charles Dickens. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1853. The full suite of 40 plates are present, including the frontispiece, title-page and 10 ''dark plates''. All first printing points are present: ''elgble'' on p. 19, line 6; ''chair'' instead of ''hair'' on p. 209, line 23; and ''counsinship'' instead of ''cousinship'' on p. 275, line 22. Bound in publisher's original green cloth, with original yellow-coated endpapers. Measures 6'' x 9''. Binding is the scarce publisher's variant, with the publication date in gilt Roman numerals to the foot of the spine, and bound without the half-title, as called for. Slip of paper is affixed to the front free endpaper, measuring approximately 5'' x .75'', with Charles Dickens' name handwritten in cursive. Book is very good with sunning and fraying to cloth along spine and binding slightly cocked. Internally, some pages are foxed with some light dampstaining. As this first printing bound the original serialized wrappers, some of the blue wrappers are still visible peeking through the binding. Overall a nice, rare copy of Dickens' classic.
