FIRST EDITION IN RARE ORIGINAL MONTHLY PARTS. "Vicar of Bullhampton Advertiser" present in parts 1-3, as called for in Sadleir and publisher's ads at back of part 11 conforming to the correct issue. The Vicar of Bullhampton was contracted in 1868 to appear serially in Once a Week, but by the time the novel was delivered the publishers were over-committed and resorted to issuing monthly parts-publication instead. Novels in monthly parts were losing their popularity by the late 1860s, and Sadleir surmises that the production of parts was unusually limited; this would account for the rarity of this work, ABPC lists just 5 copies of the parts issue at auction in the last 34 years. Sadleir 33.
