A PRESENTATION COPY FROM JOHN LESLIE BALE WITH HIS SIGNED HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. Published a month after the first edition. One of the most lavish publishing centenary histories, naturally emphasising the firm's relationships with its most notable authors including Ainsworth, Carlyle, Forster, Meredith, Trollope and, above all, Dickens. Bale was Managing Director of the fim from c.1914 to 1930 (see pp.272-4 et seq., plate facing p.272). 'The present position of the house as scientific and technical publishers owes simply everything to the vigour and judgement of Mr. Bale' (Waugh). AN IMPORTANT AND SCARCE ASSOCIATION COPY.
