Description:

DICKENS, Charles: The Personal History of David Copperfield.

London, Bradbury and Evans, 1850 [first thus]. Octavo, xiv, [ii] (errata, verso blank), 624 pages plus 39 (of 40) plates by Hablot Knight Browne ('I return to the Doctor's after the party', the plate listed opposite page 175, is missing). Half green morocco and cloth by Sangorski and Sutcliffe; top edge gilt, others uncut; small light stain to the top corner of the first four leaves (half-title, frontispiece, engraved title leaf, and printed title leaf); occasional light scattered foxing and offsetting; a few trifling signs of handling; an extremely good copy.

Notes:
