"The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club" by Charles Dickens with all of the Phiz illustrations. Part of the Rittenhouse Classics series published by MacRae Smith. No date listed, circa 1925.
Spot on front cover, some light soil on bottom edge. Binding is tight.
"Astoria; or, Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains" by Washington Irving. Published by G.P. Putnam and Son, 1868. "Knickerbocker Edition."
Three-quarter leather binding with marbled cover and endpapers. Gilt lettering on the spine. Interior pages are clean and bright, minimal soil, minimal wear to binding. Very nice copy.
"Vanity Fair" by William Makepeace Thackeray. Published by Random House, 1958. Drawings, many in color, by Robert Ball.
A bit of cover soil, overall a very clean, tight copy.
