Vol. 1200. 2 vols. in 1. 320, 294p. 15.5 cm blue hardcover binding cloth spine, marbled paper boards. Hardcover Very good The first Baron Tauchnitz, Christian Bernhard (1816-1895) began this publishing firm, providing English-language editions to Continental European readers. What was innovative was that his editions were produced with the legal consent of authors and publishers in England and the Americas. With copyright secured, he was able to produce books of a much higher quality than the cheaply produced black -market versions that were his only competition. While originally sold unbound, this edition was bound, nicely preserving the copy within. This edition was released in Europe the very same year as the novel was released to British Readers. n n n Victorian Novel; Sensation Fiction; Tauchnitz; Continental Edition Literature 100 1
