From the author of Vanity Fair, Sultan Stork is a wonderful Thackeray collection of twenty three stories, poems, articles, and reviews that had originally been published in magazine form by Ainsworth's Magazine in 1842. This is the 1867 First edition in book form and the volume also contains a bibliographical list arranged in chronological order of the published writings in prose and verse and the sketches and drawings of Thackeray from 1829-1886. The book is fully indexed and it is in beautiful condition. It is bound in half-leather with brown leather over blue marbled boards. The endpapers are also marbled and the top-edge is gilt. There is gilt lettering and fine gilt decoration to the spine which contains six compartments. The front shows some wear to it's outer edge as does the back board. The back board also shows some wear to it's top edge. The binding shows slight shelf wear but it is tight and very solid. The textblock is absolutely clean and shows no foxing. There is a bit of foxing to the outer edge of the book but it is very slight and really does not detract. This is a significant First edition and belongs in the collection of any fan of William Makepeace Thackeray. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
