Frank Fairlegh
Or Scenes from the Life of a Private Pupil

By Frank E. Smedley

Illustrated by George Cruikshank

A. Hall, Virtue & Co., London, 1850. First Edition.  Fill leather binding, 8vo, xiv, 496pp, with engraved frontispiece, engraved extra title page and 28 further engravings, all by Cruikshank.

A good copy. The leather binding has cracking down the joints but both boards still attached by the binders cords, inner joints good, endpapers good, two bookplates to the front endpapers, pages good throughout, all plates present and in good condition with some marks to margins and some age-toning but generally pretty good (see images for examples). Overall a good first edition.
