CHARLES DICKENS - MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT 1844 1st EDITION with reversed £ on the signpost, marking it out as a first edition in the first state. 

Chapman & Hall, London. 1844., 1844. First edition, first state in superb half leather with marbled paper covered boards with original title compartment to spine, 4 raised bands on spine.
Bound without half-title, octavo, all 40 illustrations by 'Phiz' including frontispiece and vignette title-page present, illustrations foxed around edges as usual, state 1 vignette title-page with the 'pound' sign reversed on the signpost, and signed "Phiz fecit". 14 line errata, xvi+624 pages. Bound from the parts.

A quite superb binding. Lovely and tight, with expected browning to edges of plates and some light foxing. Better than most Chuzzles I have come across. All in all a copy which would sit handsomely on any collector's shelf. A reasonable reserve set. 

See Oliver Twist and Pickwick (with Buss plates) firsts in my other items. Good luck!
