London: Chapman and Hall, no date [circa 1860]. [Literature] EARLY EDITION. Octavo (23 x 15cm), pp.xiv; 625. With 39 illustrations by H. K. Browne. Bound in dark green half morocco with raised bands, gilt titles and gilt to spine; marbled edges and endpapers. Internally clean and bright with occasional spotting (mostly to preliminaries). Bookplate ("George Sayer") to pastedown. Binding lightly rubbed to extremities. Very Good. Dickens' great satire on the shortcomings of Victorian government and society, focusing upon the institution of debtor's prisons, represented here by Marshalsea Gaol, where the author's own father had been imprisoned. Little Dorrit is a masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment and is one of the supreme works of Dickens's maturity. Item #44111
