FIRST EDITION OF COLLINS' THE NEW MAGDALEN

COLLINS, Wilkie. The New Magdalen. A Novel. London: Richard Bentley, 1873. Two volumes. Octavo, late 19th century full tan calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, red and blue morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. $950.

First edition, handsomely bound by Riviere and Son.

Collins had "one of the longest and most distinctive literary careers of the nineteenth century… In the course of nearly half a century's writing [he] tried many new ways of reaching and expanding his audience. Dickensian Christmas books, short stories, three-decker novels, magazine and newspaper serializations flowed from his pen with a productivity unchecked" (Bowen 4-5).

Only a bit of mild occasional soiling to text. A fine copy.
