New York. Scribner & Co., November 1880 to April 1881.
Vol. XXI. Illustrated throughout with black and white wood-engravings, pp. 1-968, 9 3/4 x 7 inches, handsome gilt lettered spine, 3/4 leather binding. Small patches of abrasion to binding, rubbing to cover extremities, foxing to front and back pastedowns and free endpapers, occasional light foxing to page edges; overall the volume is tight and clean, a good copy. Illustrated articles include "In London with Dickens", a journey through the London landmarks immortalized in the man's novels. At the time of writing, the Marshalsea still existed, though no longer used as a debtor's prison; modern travelers will have to content themselves with the church nearby where Little Dorrit was baptised. Also included is "Striped Bass", an account of a fishing trip to Martha's Vineyard. Item #55876
