What Our Customers Say...

Description

Fine Binding, First Edition, Uncommon

This work was published following Dickens' first trip to America. He visited many locations, including Virginia, Missouri, and New York. He enjoyed the city of Boston, which is where this celebratory dinner was held. It is a faithful account of the speeches made that evening. 

In attendance at the dinner were Oliver Wendell Holmes, Washington Allston, George Bancroft, and Nathan Hale Jr among many noted literary figures. 

Dickens' own speech is recorded to pages 10-15, and he introduces the subject of International Copyright. 

A truly fine copy of this uncommon work.
