HARD TIMES: For These Times. Charles Dickens. HARD TIMES: For These Times.
[New York: Household Words, 1854]. First U.S. edition. HARD TIMES first appeared in America in the weekly "Household Words" from May through September 1854. The American publisher of "Household Words," T. L. McElwrath, placed HARD TIMES in such a way that the segments of the novel could be excised and bound up together--which his customers were urged to do. He provided a wrapper (also used for his unissued sheets) in which to bind HARD TIMES, thus constituting the actual first American edition of the novel. This copy, lacking title page and wrapper, starts with page [1] "HARD TIMES. / By Charles Dickens, Esq. /Furnished in advance exclusively for this Journal." 108 double-column pages, bound in period three-quarter leather and marbled boards. Professionally touched up where there was light wear to edges, resulting in a very good to near fine copy of this scarce issue.
