London: Bradbury & Evans, 1850. First Edition. True first issue with all points, including "screamed" for "screwed" on page 132 line 20 (usually lacking). Nineteenth century half-morocco over marbled boards. Light to moderate foxing on most plates, heaviest on the frontis and vignette title page. Spine sunned and a few dark spots near the spine, otherwise the binding is holding well with no cracking at the hinges or chips to the leather. Issue points include: "screamed" for "screwed" on page 132 line 20 (often lacking from first edition copies); Chapter XXVII is on page 282 rather than page 283 as listed in the table of contents; 16: 1 and 225: 22 both read "recal" rather than "recall"; 19: 39 reads "cha pter ; ut"; 387: 45 reads "coroboration" rather than "corroboration"; 472: 37 has no closing of the quotation marks; and the first state of the engraved vignette title page (dated) is present. David Copperfield was Dickens' most autobiographical novel. A classic and charming story by the maestro of Victorian fiction.
