Item Description: Chapman & Hall 1906-1908., London, 1906. Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and elaborate tooling, blue inlay to the inner and rear panels. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exceptional complete set in near fine condition, with just a few volumes that have light cracking at the hinges. Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

Item Description: Bradbury & Evans, London, 1850. Wraps. H. K. Browne (illustrator). First edition in original monthly parts. This is the complete first, serialized edition of David Copperfield, housed in a full morocco case with nested cloth chemise. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-1870) was an English writer and social critic, widely viewed to be the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. David Copperfield, published at the height of Dickens’ celebrity, was considered to be largely autobiographical. "It is Dickens's first first-person novel (David as narrator calls it ‘my written memory’) and in it he draws, much more directly than hitherto, on events and people from his own personal life in ‘a very complicated interweaving of truth and fiction’" (ODNB) Dickens called David Copperfield a "favourite child" and wrote of it "Of all my books, I like this the best." David Copperfield was originally serialized between May 1849 and November 1850 in 20 numbers bound in 19 monthly parts, the last two (19 & 20) being issued as a double number. Design for the green wrappers and forty plates illustrating this first serialized edition was by the English artist and illustrator Hablot Knight Browne (1815-1882), known by the pen name "Phiz." After illustrating Dickens’ first serial fiction, Pickwick Papers (1836-37), "For the next twenty-three years Browne was Dickens’ foremost illustrator and first graphic interpreter." (ODNB) Reprints were issued in wrappers without any advertisements. All 19 parts in this set have been carefully collated to confirm the presence of all plates by H. K. Browne, as well as all advertisements specified by Hatton and Cleaver (pp.253-272), including the complex folding insert for "Letts’s Diaries for 1850" with sample leaves in Part VIII. In the final installment (Parts 19 and 20) we also find an additional advertisement not specified in Hatton and Cleaver. This is an 8-page leaflet between the front wrapper verso and the facing "Copperfield Advertiser" for The Architectural Antiquities of Athens ("This Day is published, in Imperial Quarto, price One Shilling, to be continued Fortnightly, No. 1 "). All original wrappers are intact, with a partial vertical split to the spine of Part 1. We note the same previous owner name inked in the upper blank margin of the front wrapper of 14 parts - Numbers III, VI, VIII-XI, and XIII-XX. The set is housed in a red cloth chemise nested within a two-piece full red morocco box with rounded spine, raised bands, gilt rule spine compartments, and double gilt rule borders on the covers. The morocco box is well crafted, showing some venerable age consonant with the contents it has well protected. We note light overall scuffing to the box with some darkening of the top and spine, and with the nested red cloth chemise split at some of the folds. Bookseller Inventory # 003844

Item Description: Dana Estes & Company, Boston. Complete set of Charles Dickens. Octavo, 48 volumes. Three quarters leather, top edge gilt. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine. With a signed postcard addressed and signed by Charles Dickens tipped in to The Pickwick Papers. Hand colored frontispiece to each volume. Limited to one thousand copies. In Fine condition. A beautiful set. Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens's creative genius has been praised by fellow writers--from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G. K. Chesterton--for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. Bookseller Inventory # 3203

Item Description: 1850. [the American serial parts] [In 20-parts-in-19.] New York: John Wiley [Parts 1-11 plus Part 19/20; G. P. Putnam, Parts 12-18], 1849-1850. Original light tan wrappers. First American Edition in serial parts (one of two such editions). In 1849-1850 both Lea & Blanchard of Philadelphia, and John Wiley / G.P. Putnam of New York (as here), issued DAVID COPPERFIELD in parts, derived from the English parts then coming out. (As Walter Smith points out, the front wrapper of the first two parts states "This edition is re-printed from proof sheets received by special arrangement from the London Publishers" -- but no such "arrangement" in writing has ever been found.) John Wiley of New York issued the first ten parts under his imprint, the next eight bore the imprint of G.P. Putnam, and the final double number bore the Wiley imprint again. (As Podeschi points out, the publisher imprint on Parts 12-18 varies, because when Putnam took over he used some of Wiley's old un-numbered wrappers -- but in this set, all seven do bear the Putnam imprint.)~The English serial parts had 40 plates by H.K. Browne ("Phiz") -- two per part. In the Wiley / Putnam parts, the first part reads "Illustrated by H.K. Browne" while the others read "The illustrations engraved on wood by J.W. Orr [& Brother], from designs by H.K. Browne." According to Wilkins these Orr plates were "much better drawn and engraved than those in the Philadelphia edition." A complete set of Wiley / Putnam parts contains 36 plates, not 40: for the first two parts, Wiley had great difficulty getting plates engraved in time to accompany their corresponding text; therefore, he issued Part 3 withOUT plates, and beginning with that part the wrapper states "The illustrations for this No. will be given with the next.". Thus Part 19/20 has the two plates that go with the text of Part 18, and that final part's wrapper states "The FOUR ILLUSTRATIONS for this Number will be furnished to Subscribers, Gratis, in a few days."~After serialization, Wiley published an 1850 two-volume edition (with all 40 plates); curiously, Lea & Blanchard did not publish a book edition until 1851. (Incidentally the actual "first American edition," i.e. the first to appear in its entirety in America, was Burgess's single-volume one in wrappers with only eight illustrations -- ironically Burgess set his text from, and copied the plates in Wiley's parts.)~This set is in very good-plus, perhaps near-fine condition: the wrappers have minor edge-wear and some fragile spines have some slight chipping, but the parts are COMPLETE and include all the proper wrappers. Many of the front wrappers include the signature of the same (undoubtedly first) owner of these parts -- in some cases inscribing them on to someone else, and in two cases adding a brief observation, namely "Good!" and "David commits Matrimony!". It is no exaggeration that one sees a hundred sets of English serial parts for every single set of American serial parts. Smith (American Dickens) pp 284-294 (this set -- see one of the above inscriptions in the photo on p. 284); Podeschi (Yale) A123; Carr (UTexas) B221; Wilkins p. 29. Bookseller Inventory # 12589

Item Description: Chapman and Hall, London. Original Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Browne, H. K. ("PHIZ.") (illustrator). First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. London: Chapman and Hall. Published in the 1860's as part of the "Charles Dickens Edition" or "Original Edition" set, this is a printing of David Copperfield from the original plates (1850) in its original brown sandcloth (also called "diapercloth") binding, with a blindstamped rule around the edges. "David Copperfield". (short swollen rule), "Dickens" (all caps), "Illustrated, Original Edition" appear on the spine in gilt. Original uncolored endpapers, uniform with pages. 9" tall x 5.5" wide. This book is in an early revision state with most of the internal flaws and points listed by Smith (pp. 76-77), corrected as follows: title page lists Chapman and Hall (while all other references are to Bradbury & Evans in the book, including the imprint at the foot of p. 624 and the imprint on iv; the errors on pp. 19, 30, 34, 132 and 237 have been corrected. All other points are present (Smith, pp. 97-98). The book contains Dickens's errata sheet. This book was composed from the original edition with some errors corrected, and then released by Chapman and Hall at a later date, along with other matching volumes in a set called the "Original Edition" (now called the "Charles Dickens Edition"). This book is in very good condition. Boards are chipped top and bottom of spine; there is a small tear at the fold about 1/3 up from the bottom. The spine is lightly faded, corners are bumped, boards are lightly scuffed, with some light foxing. All the structural components are solid. John Carter (Taste & Technique in Book Collecting quoted in Smith, p. ix) said "many of Dickens's cloth-bound novels are hardly ever found in fine condition.Cloth cases provided for his usually ample volumes were poor quality, so that the collector may find Martin Chuzzlewit and David Copperfield as difficult, and Pickwick more difficult, to secure in fine original cloth than in the parts." In the 1860's Dickens revised and edited his books, releasing the so-called "Charles Dickens Edition", or "Original Edition" of which this is part. Oxford University Press used the Charles Dickens Edition as the authoritative version of Dickens on which to base their reprint of Dickens's works. This is an exceptional copy of David Copperfield, in its original cloth, unrepaired, un-recased, as published from Bradbury & Evans' first edition plates, in the authoritative "Charles Dickens" or "Original Edition". Very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 002315

Item Description: London Bradbury & Evans 1850, 1850. First edition. With 39 illustrations by H. K. Browne 8vo, contemporary three-quarter black-green morocco over marbled boards, very handsomely tooled in gilt on the raised bands of the spine, lettered in gilt in two compartments. xiv, 624. A very handsome copy, quite fine, and with only some mild, unobtusive evidence of age to the covers and with much, much less than the usual toning to the plates. FINE FIRST EDITION. For many lovers of the author's works, DAVID COPPERFIELD ranks as the finest of his writings. "Of all my books," Dickens wrote, "I like this the best; like many fond parents I have my favourite child, and his name is David Copperfield." It is certainly Dickens’ most personal and autobiographical work, especially in the remarkable early chapters describing David’s provincial upbringing and his experiences in the bleak warehouses of London. Abounding in vivid characters such as Uriah Heep, Betsy Trotwood, Mr. Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick, DAVID COPPERFIELD continues to rank among Dickens’ most popular and critically acclaimed works. In this work, Dickens displays his talents well: "his inordinate gift of observation, his sympathy with the humble, his power over the emotions and his incomparable endowment of unalloyed human fun.It gave what were then universally referred to as ‘the lower orders’ a new sense of self-respect, a new feeling of citizenship. Like the defiance of another Luther, or the Declaration of a new Independence, it emitted a fresh ray of hope across the firmament." [EB] In this way, Dickens’ work is significant on many levels.

FINE FIRST EDITION, BOUND IN HANDSOME BLUE CALF OVER BLUE MARBLED BOARDS. For many lovers of the author's works, DAVID COPPERFIELD ranks as the finest of his writings. "Of all my books," Dickens wrote, "I like this the best; like many fond parents I have my favourite child, and his name is David Copperfield." It is certainly Dickens’ most personal and autobiographical work, especially in the remarkable early chapters describing David’s provincial upbringing and his experiences in the bleak warehouses of London. Abounding in vivid characters such as Uriah Heep, Betsy Trotwood, Mr. Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick, DAVID COPPERFIELD continues to rank among Dickens’ most popular and critically acclaimed works. In this work, Dickens displays his talents well: "his inordinate gift of observation, his sympathy with the humble, his power over the emotions and his incomparable endowment of unalloyed human fun.It gave what were then universally referred to as ‘the lower orders’ a new sense of self-respect, a new feeling of citizenship. Like the defiance of another Luther, or the Declaration of a new Independence, it emitted a fresh ray of hope across the firmament." [EB] In this way, Dickens’ work is significant on many levels.

Item Description: London: Bradbury and Evans, 1850., 1850. FIRST EDITION, bound from the parts. Large octavo, original blind-stamped cloth lettered in gilt, yellow eps., with half-title, additional engraved title and 39 plates, tissue guards, 1 plate with closed tear affecting caption and just touching image, some foxing, mainly to plates. This copy in a variant unrecorded publisher's cloth with a more ornate/stylised blind-stamping to spine and borders (and without a central medallion), unlike that descibed by Smith, which features the square panelling to spine and straight line border with small corner devices. Cloth expertly repaired to spine tips, recased, some rubbing and minor discolour, faint ink name to pastedown, housed in a modern leather-entry cloth slip-case. A very good copy. Mixed issue with early points thus; title engraving is dated, and page viii (preface) has the final 'i' misalined. The misprint 'screamed' is corrected in this copy ('screwed'), p.132, line 20. Charles Dickens' highly autobiographical novel, whose story is told almost entirely from the point of view of the first person narrator, David Copperfield himself; the first Dickens novel to do so. Hatton & Cleaver pp.253-272, Smith; Dickens in the Original Cloth. Listed in 100 Books That Shaped World History [Raftery, 2002].
