The Exact First Edition Great Expectations

This is the first edition of Charles Dickens’ literary masterpiece Great Expectations, reproduced exactly as it appeared when originally published in 1861. Dickens’ beloved coming-of-age tale of the orphan Phillip “Pip” Pirrip has been reissued in three volumes—the same as its inaugural printing—by historic publisher Charles Winthrope & Sons, experts at preserving literary classics. The publisher procured an actual copy of this rare book (only 1,000 were printed) to ensure Dickens’ masterwork was reproduced with the utmost accuracy. The result is a testament to their painstaking attention to detail, from the identical grade of paper and the use of the original typeface to the deckle edging and intricately debossed and gold-stamped violet covers. Each hardcover volume is protected by an elegant gold embossed dust jacket. Each volume 8" H x 5 1/2" H x 1 1/4" D. (5 lbs. total)
