London: Richard Bentley, 1839-40. Bound from the sheets. With 25 engravings by George Cruikshank. Octavo (5 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches); full brown calf, gilt panels; hinges and corners rubbed; some light foxing. Tipped in is an ALS from the author. (Item ID: 2040)

An uncommon appearance. The publisher has added a new title-page, and then extracted the original sheets for this novel from copies of Bentley's Miscellany. At rear are the indexes and an original wrapper. The engravings are quite rich in tone, being early impressions.

Tipped in is a small 3 pages ALS where the author discusses publishing matters and hopes the copy of "Jack Sheppard" has reached the recipient.
