Book Description: Bradbury & Evans. 1850, 1850. FIRST EDITION. Half title, frontispiece, additional engraved title, plates, 6-line errata. Contemporary half brown calf, red morocco label, marbled boards; a little rubbed. INSCRIBED by Dickens on the half title to his actor friend John Harley: 'John Pritt Harley from his friend Charles Dickens.' Small armorial bookplate on recto of first blank of Jacob Burnett. In the binding in which the book was presented by Dickens. This is a very special copy. Dickens's relationship with Harley is well documented and there are many letters. Vol. VI Page 568 of the Letters records Dickens promising to send Presentation Copies. 'The arrears shall be duly posted up. I am obliged to wait a little, in consequence of some of the books not being immediately come-at-able; but they shall be yours "anon anon Sir".' It is possible that Jacob Burnett was related to Henry Burnett husband of Fanny (Dickens's sister and 'dear companion & confidante'). Harley knew Henry Burnett well. John Pritt Harley, 1786-1858, actor and singer, renowned for his Shakespearean clowns and comic singing. He befriended Dickens in 1836. Bookseller Inventory # 58048

Book 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. Very early American edition, one of two issued in serial parts. 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

Book 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

Book Description: [1891], 1891. Black ink on Reeves artists' boards, shaded in wash. Each 36 x 19cm, with a description and page number on verso. Exceptionally well-preserved in a handsome custom-made blue cloth fold-over case (with label indicating that the illustrations are for 'The Household Edition'). Self booklabel. This collection here includes 33 designs by Barnard that were used in the first Household Edition of David Copperfield, published in 1872. There are also 18 designs adapted from the illustrations by H.K. Browne that appeared in the first and subsequent editions of David Copperfield. Also present, an attractive original design for an illuminated title. All the designs are dated 1891, in pencil, on verso, and each has a page reference indicating the intended position within the text. All the designs appear to have been drawn by Barnard for a projected, but apparently unrealised, new edition of the work to be published in the 1890s. J. Fred Barnard was the most successful of the later Dickens illustrators, providing no fewer than 450 new images for the Household edition of Charles Dickens works, for thirteen separate titles.

Book Description: London Bradbury & Evans 1850, 1850. First edition, bound from the original 20 monthly parts. With 39 engraved plates and a vignette titlepage by H. K. Browne [Phiz]. 8vo, antique three-quarter brown calf over plum moire cloth covered boards, the spine with raised bands double ruled in gilt and then stippled in blind, one compartment with a red morocco label handsomely ruled and lettered in gilt, page edges marbled. xiv, [1], 624 pp. A handsome copy, quite fine internally, fresh and solid with almost none of the usual toning to the plates and much, much less of the typical spotting, typical offsetting to the frontispiece and vignette title-page, the binding fine with only minor evidence of age. FINE FIRST EDITION, BOUND FROM THE ORIGINAL PARTS. 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.

Book 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-tipped 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.

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.

Book Description: Arthur Barker, Ltd., London, 1933. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. A Very Good copy (spine sunned and with some foxing, corners rubbed, modest shelf wear, prize plate to the front free endpaper). An ASSOCIATION COPY FROM ROBERT GRAVES TO FELLOW POET WILLIAM J ELLIS AND HIS WIFE MARIA PAZ DE MENDOZA and INSCRIBED to them on the front free endpaper: "Bill & Cuca / with love / from Robert / Deia/ -1971-". (A small coastal village on the island of Majorca, Spain, now known for its famous literary and musical residents. Robert Graves was one of the first foreigners to make his home there, which he did with Laura Riding, leaving with her at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and returning there with his new wife, Beryl, in 1946. Graves died at Deia in 1985.) Graves considered Dickens' David Copperfield to be not well-written and judged that at least 250,000 of the 500,000 words written by Dickens (needed solely to reach the required 20 Parts in which it originally was published in 1849-1950) were unnecessary. This novel, as editied and revised by Graves, presents the tale in a much more readable form. Signed copies of Graves' Limited Editions abound, but signed copies of his trade editions do not. Association copies are rarer still. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY, INSCRIBED, SIGNED, DATED, AND PLACED BY ROBERT GRAVES. Bookseller Inventory # 00002165
