A very early and extremely scarce 1861 edition of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel The Professor and also in this volume are The Poems of Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell (Charlotte, Emily and Anne). Published by Smith, Elder and Co., London. This copy dates to just four years after the very first edition was published. It is exceptionally hard to find a copy from this early today. In good condition with spotting to the orange cloth being the main condition point to note (see photos).

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with just some occasional spotting and the odd folded corner. The book opens and closes with publisher's adverts to the endpapers and with an eight-page catalogue at the back. With no leaning at all, a very tight and square copy.

Bound in the original orange boards with black titles. These have some black spots. There is rounding to the corners, a bump on the top edge of the back board, and a tiny bit of rubbing to the cloth at the spine ends. The orange of the spine has dulled slightly in comparison to the front and back. The black titles remain easily visible.

Your 1861 copy of The Professor and Poems will be wrapped with great care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged with tracking and full insurance. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 18 cm x W 11.5 cm, 436 pages, 0.38 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK.

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