The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit
London: Chapman and Hall, , 1844. With Illustrations by Phiz. Octavo. Original blue diagonal-grain cloth, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, sides blocked in blind, new endpapers. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title page and 39 plates by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne). Rubbed, some foxing to plates, a very good copy. 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.
