Author: (CHARLES DICKENS). H.T. TAVERNER [PSEUD. JOHN CAMDEN HOTTEN]
Title: Charles Dickens. The Story of His Life. By the Author of 'The Life of Thackeray'. Third Edition. THIRD EDITION OF THE FIRST 'LIFE'
Description: "John Camden Hotten, [1874?]" "8vo., Third Edition, with an engraved title-vignette, neat contemporary signature on advertisement leaf, some light spotting to text; original decorative green cloth, upper board elaborately blocked in gilt and black, gilt back, black endpapers, uncut, a very good, bright copy. With the embossed trade stamp of W H Smith on front free endpaper. The first life of Dickens, first published in 1870 barely three weeks after Dickens' death. BLPC gives the author as Henry Thomas Taverner (acknowledged in the publisher's preliminary note) but the work is also attributed to Joseph Grego and William Moy Thomas. NCBEL gives joint authorship to Taverner and Hotten himself (see NCBEL III p.828). The work includes an extensive Appendix of anecdotes and reminiscences. An attractive if slightly aged copy. This edition is apparently not listed in BLPC."
