William Makepeace Thackeray was a British novelist, known for his satirical work. He is perhaps best known for his novel 'Vanity Fair', which received much critical success. Incredibly popular with the Victorian reader, he was an influential literary figure of this time. So much so Charlotte Bronte dedicated the second edition of her work 'Jane Eyre' to Thackeray. Binders stamp to the front endpapers of each volume, 'Denny, 304. Strand'. Previous owners bookplate to the front of each pastedown, reads, Henry Grafford Rawson.
