About this Item

With 40 illustrations by Phiz, including the frontispiece and engraved title containing 100£ on signpost; with the 14-line errata page. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers; some of the plates are browned along the edges, the text is especially clean. From the library of William Law with his bookplate. First edition. Many critics have stated that this novel is Dickens at his best. Some further declare that the character of Pecksniff is one of Dickens' most brilliant contributions to English literature. The 100£ reward sign on title is often referred to as a first issue point, though Hatton and Cleaver contend that there is no priority and that both plates were used in the monthly parts which preceded this first book edition.
