It’s Not Christmas Without Dickens

So here’s the first book-form edition, in three volumes, of Charles Dickens’ first and wildly successful weekly periodical, Master Humphrey’s Clock (London: Chapman & Hall, 1840). Includes the first appearances of Barnaby Rudge and The Old Curiosity Shop, the whole illustrated with lavish arrays of in-text illustrations by two of Dickens’ most significant illustrators. George Cattermole’s skill with architecture and views and “Phiz” Browne’s with humor and character both flower here; Dickens, of course, wrote every word. Original maroon cloth, chemises, boxed. $2,500

Wuthering Heights

Musician and poet Patti Smith introduces The Folio Society’s new illustrated edition of Wuthering Heights, one of the most famous love stories in all of literature and the sole novel written by Emily Bront before her untimely death. Her uncompromising tale of obsession, betrayal, and revenge sparked moral outrage on publication, and to this day the fate of Heathcliff and Catherine has a haunting, unforgettable power. Rovina Cai’s atmospheric illustrations enhance this edition, which has been produced in series with the Folio edition of Jane Eyre. $69.95
