Chapman and Hall, 1865.
First edition, first printing. First issue with misspelling "pricipal" on p.115 of second volume. Two volumes contemporaneously bound as one. Victorian tan gilt half bound bounds with green cloth. No chipping or splitting to leather. One tiny mark to front board. Internally clean and complete with original & unsplit marbled endpapers. Attractive manuscript owner name to blank endpaper. Only occasional spotting. Two original flyers for contemporary titles (as issued) loosely laid in. A clean and fresh copy.
A satiric masterpiece about the allure and peril of money. The story revolves around the inheritance of a dust heap where the rich throw their trash.
