The Chimes

London: Chapman & Hall, 1845. First Edition; publisher’s cloth; first state of the vignette title page; tiny spot on the front paste-down, else a remarkably fine copy with the 1846 ownership signature of actress and writer Helen Faucit. It seems likely that Faucit and Dickens would have met; she and her husband, Sir Theodore Martin, were friends of Thackeray, and Martin was present at Thackeray and Dickens’s brief reconciliation at the Atheneum Club.
