Madison Square, New York: G. W. Carleton & Co. [ 1875-1887 ]. First Edition. 6 1/4 x 20 inches. Yellow paper printed in black. Folded as if for mailing, several small tears at folds. Otherwise an excellent example. Printed on both sides, the recto with a woodcut of Charles Dickens at 53, "From a Photograph taken in England, 1865". Also illustrated on verso with an engraving of Westminster Abbey at the bottom "The Grave of Charles Dickens, Near the Tombs of Shakspeare, Garrick, Chaucer and Dryden (Drawn by S. L. Fildes)" Very Good. [27965]
