9 Dickens, Charles The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit
London Chapman and Hall 1844 Later Printing Hardcover Very Good (Plus) No Jacket "Phiz" (Halbot Browne) 
London: Chapman and Hall, 1844. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of the First Edition, rebound in clean maroon cloth with gilt titling on the spine. Clean text; very bright and fresh; xiii, 624 pages. Lacking a date on the Title Page, Quercus believes this copy was possibly made up of serial parts: the Preface is dated June, 1844. Points noted: there are 38 plates plus the double Title Page by "Phiz" (Halbot Browne); the errata page has 14 lines; the pound-sign is not transposed (although Ahearn gives this no priority). Given these, this would not be the first issue. This is, nonetheless, a very sturdy copy, given the rebind. The front hinge is cracked but holding well, and there is a short tear to the first ten pages, probably from enthusiastic page-turning. . Later Printing. Buckram. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. Illus. by "Phiz" (Halbot Browne). 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
