This is a large and striking edition of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Published in 1901 by The Gresham Publishing Company, London. Known as The Imperial Edition, with charming Art Nouveau design and with eight black and white illustrations by WS Stacey (see photos).

Inside the contents are in good condition for an antique book of this age. There is spotting to the endpapers and then scattered lightly through the text. Has a few folded corners. All of the eight black and white illustrations are present and they all have a pristine white tissue guard still in place. This copy has not been written in, and there are no other markings of previous ownership. The top edge is gilt.

In striking bright red cloth covered boards with gilt Art Nouveau decoration. Also in good order. The boards are clean and smart, and the gilt on the front is shiny bright. Has some rubbing to the spine ends with a few tiny splits to the cloth. The spine has dulled in comparison to the boards, but the decoration remains clearly visible and this is an attractive book to display.

Your antique copy of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 22 cm x W 16 cm, 319 pages, 0.94 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
