London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1868. Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) had a long literary and political career, culminating in serving as Prime Minister. This is a Very Good Plus copy of a Later Printing of the "Revised Edition" of 1853. His first novel, it was first published anonymously in 1826. Later, Disraeli added a sequel of several chapters, and this is the established (and expurgated) text of today. Early editions of Disraeli's works are uncommon these days, and this is an extremely interesting publication in itself. According to the "Advertisement" that serves as a preface, and dated 1853, Disraeli was forced to reissue the novel because of the pirated editions, particularly those in Germany and the United States. Bound in marbled paper boards with black leather spine and tips; six ruled bands in gilt on the spine, with gilt lettering. Rubbing to the margins. The text is clean and bright, very readable today; 416 pages. The front paste-down and free endpaper have numerous notes in ink regarding the characters. Size: 24mo - over 5" - 5" tall. First Thus.. Half-Leather. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
