Catalogue Note

A highly appropriate gift for one of the best-known collectors of literature in three-deckers. This unique copy includes a printed note stating that 'This first copy of Fanny by Gaslight has been specially bound in three volumes (with apologies to Marie Corelli and Richard Bentley) for the author from his wife'. Each volume contains a new title-page and there are a significant number of blank leaves in order to bulk out the volumes.
