The Personal History of David Copperfeild by Charles Dickens

First book edition published by Bradbury & Evans 11, Bouverie Street, London 1850

Illustrations by H (Hablot) K Browne

624 pages, 40 Plates including the Frontpiece and Vignette Title Page (38 in book)

Has all the  faults attributed to the first printing of this book in November 1850

Has 'screamed' instead of 'screwed' page 132 line 20

Chapter XXVII is on page 282 not 283 as listed in the contents.

'Recall' is spelt 'Recal' in line 1 page 16 and Line 22 page 225

Page 19 12 line from bottom 'chapter ;ut' is printed in error

Page 387, 6 lines from bottom corroboration is spelt coroboration

The Vignette has the date 1850 printed at the bottom

External condition: The book has been very well used, the title on the spine can only just be read, the only real damage apart from wear is a very small tear at the top of the spine.

Internal condition: The tissue page between the Frontpiece and Vignette is still in place, all the pages are in place and firmly fixed, all the written pages are in excellent condition considering the age, about half the plates are in excellent condition, the other half have some foxing I have tried to include both in the photographs.

The only marks inside are the names of two owners inside the front cover.

Due to some bad experiences the postage allows for signed for delivery, I have no objection to collection - 1 Mile from Junction 6 M40 (OX39)
