“It's in vain to recall the past, unless it works some influence upon the present": First Edition In Parts of Charles Dickens' David Copperfield
London: Bradbury and Evans, May 1849-November 1850.
First edition in parts of “the most perfect of all the Dickens novels” (Virginia Woolf). Octavo, original blue-green illustrated serial issue wrappers being twenty parts in nineteen with the majority of preliminary advertisements present, frontispiece, vignette title-page and forty engraved plates. In excellent condition, an unrestored example of Dickens’ classic work, with some of the backstrips with small chips. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example.
