The Pickwick Papers
By Charles Dickens
Illustrator Frank Reynolds
Circa 1925, Westminster.
Semi-decorated red covers.
Gilt titling to front cover and spine.
Pictorial endpapers and twenty tipped-in plates.
Not dated, but writing on inside front cover is dated 1926.
Two inscriptions on front pastedown:
The first reads: "Friday December 17 - 1926. Ernest Briggs"
The second reads: "Presented to Raymond Briggs from Uncle Ernest August 2nd 1942".
It is unclear if the Raymond Briggs referred to in the dedication is the famous children's illustrator or not.
A dedication on inside front cover reads "presented to Raymond Briggs from uncle Ernest August 2nd 1942."
Slight wear to edges of covers.
Spine strip a little faded.
Very good condition.
