The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit. With Illustrations by Phiz.
London: Chapman and Hall, 1844 - Octavo. Original blue diagonal-grain cloth, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, sides blocked in blind, new endpapers. Rubbed, some foxing to plates, a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title page and 39 plates by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne). First edition, with the textual flaws noted by Smith. This copy has the £100 title plate, not transposed. The transposed plate is often suggested as a first issue point, though Hatton and Cleaver long ago dismissed this, stating that "It is merely one of the five cases in Chuzzlewit of triplicated steels, one of them reading '100£' and the other two '£100' . all three of them in use during the issue in parts." Podeschi, A Catalogue of the Gimbel Collection, A71-2; Hatton and Cleaver pp. 183-212; Smith I, 7. [Attributes: First Edition]
