In later burnt orange half morocco with raised bands, gilt titles and gilt decoration to spines. Top edges gilt; brown cloth boards. Very lightly browned, otherwise very good indeed, in a handsome binding. Dickens' great satire on the shortcomings of Victorian government and society, focusing upon the institution of debtor's prisons, represented 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 #48389
