The First Edition has for sale this wonderful scarce Frank Reynolds illustrated book Charles Dickens Mr Pickwick Pages from The Pickwick Papers.  This Charles Dickens book has been illustrated throughout with 25 tipped-in colour plates by celebrated and highly regarded artist Frank Reynolds R.I, of which this is the deluxe first edition which is limited in number to just 350 copies of which this is number 254.  The Limitation Page of the book bears the bold signature of Frank Reynolds.

The original white vellum binding bears a gilt and silhouette illustration to the centre of the front board of Mr Pickwick, with the title and lettering also in gilt and surrounded by a two thin gilt lines also in gilt.  All gilt decorations and lettering is embossed into the vellum binding.

The thick vellum boards measuring a very impressive 12.50 x 10.00 inches are in Very Good condition being complete but lacking their ties and having marks, which is consistent with vellum bindings from this period.

There are 174 numbered pages, top edge gilt remainder untrimmed, which are in Very Good to Near Fine condition with light browning to the endpapers; a neat inscription to one of the blank pages to the front of the book dated 5th December 1910; and marks to some pages which are small (or in the guttering) and do not detract from the overall attractive appearance of the book.

There are 25 superb tipped-in illustrations by Frank Reynolds R.I. which are all present according to the list of illustrations to the front of the book and are in Fine condition except one plate opposite page 72 which is in Very Good condition missing the smallest of tips to one corner (bottom left) which affects just the thin margin and not the image.

This is a superb Charles Dickens deluxe limited edition book, that has been professionally illustrated throughout by Frank Reynolds R.I. and which will make a wonderful addition to any Charles Dickens books collection, illustrated books collection, signed books collection, or as a superb Christmas present for him or her,  birthday present or anniversary present.
