In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1857. Original blind-stamped green cloth.
First Edition. As can be inferred from the fact that this novel is in three volumes and without illustrations, THE FORTUNES OF GLENCORE did not first appear in serial parts -- unlike most of Lever's tales. After his wife deserts him (avowing that she did not love him), Viscount Glencore decides to exact revenge by claiming that the marriage was never legal in the first place; this however has the side-effect of disinheriting his son, who decides to run away...
As is proper, there are no half-titles. Condition is near-fine (a touch of wear at the foot of the spines, faint evidence of the prior presence of library labels on the front covers, but little other wear). Sadleir 1405; Wolff 4088. Provenance: each title page bears the early penciled signature of J.H. Woollcombe. Item #14266
