"Public Life of Mr. Tulrumble, once Mayor of Mudfog."

By Boz. With Other Tales and Sketches [by other authors], from Bentley's Miscellany and The Library of Fiction. Philadelphia: Carey, Lea and Blanchard, 1837. Original drab boards with rose cloth spine and printed label.

First Edition of this early collection of tales by various authors -- which constitutes one of Dickens's earliest American appearances in book form. According to Podeschi, 2,000 copies were printed in April 1837. This Dickens tale was not collected in an all-Dickens volume until ten years after his death -- in THE MUDFOG PAPERS (1880). Also included in this volume is "An Evening of Visits" by "J. Fennimore Cooper Esq. [sic]".

This volume is in very good-plus condition (closed tear in front free endpaper, rose cloth faded as always, slight rubbing of the spine label); one cannot encounter these Philadelphia volumes from the 1830s in much better condition. Podeschi (Yale) B44; Carr (U of Texas) B551. Item #14418

Price: $975.00
