A first edition, first printing, first issue with the ‘100£’ sign on the frontispiece. Bound in contemporary marbled boards with leather spine and corners. Neat name twice to prelims and previous owner’s very small bookplate to the front pastedown. Binding is sound and tight. PP. 624 with some spotting to the prelims and to the rear pages. Rubbing and wear to the edges, but a very good copy overall. Martin Chuzzlewit is seen as the last of Dickens’ picaresque novels – while he was writing it Dickens told a friend that he thought it was his best work thus far.
