Buchbeschreibung: [London]: Privately Printed [by William Clowes and Sons, Stamford Street], n.d., [ca. 1866], 1866. Dickens' public readings were among the legendary performances of the middle nineteenth century. "Dickens poured all his resources of his art and personality into these readings (his favourite always remained the adaptation from David Copperfield)" (Ackroyd, p. 902). He condensed the novel himself and selected passages relating to Dora Spenlow, whom he modelled upon Maria Beadnell, the love of his youth. The present copy, from the library of distinguished Dickensian Herman LeRoy Edgar, is one of two known copies of the private printing ordered by Dickens. Dickens' own extensively marked and rewritten copy, from the library of Cortlandt F. Bishop (lot 566, $4100 in 1938), is now in the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library. The title page is identical in both copies, with the subheadings "A Reading" and "In Five Chapters" on separate lines. The present copy is untrimmed; the text begins at page [3], "Chapter the First.," and bears pencil corrections in the margins of page 11, one correcting the spelling of the word "his" and the other noting an extra space within the word "am" (both are corrected in the Dickens copy at the Berg). Examination of the copy at the Berg reveals that it is printed on thicker wove paper stock, and that the sheets were trimmed by the binder; it contains an additional "Introduction" of twenty pages, numbered [i]-xx. The opening of this section is clearly derived from, and in fact partly printed from, the setting of type of the original Chapter the First, at pp. [3]-5, where large portions of text used in the "Introduction" are struck through. On p. [i] Dickens has written "in all, six chapters" and has corrected the chapter numbering throughout, so that the heading in type on page [3], "Chapter the First." is corrected by hand to Chapter "II". The present copy contains the earliest setting of Dickens' selection from David Copperfield. In the Ticknor & Fields authorized edition of the Readings, published in the autumn of 1867 (though dated 1868), David Copperfield follows Dickens' revised structure in six chapters. Unique in this state, and with distinguished provenance ONE OF TWO KNOWN COPIES of Dickens' private edition, the present copy in earliest state and printed on thin proofing paper. 8vo (222 x 148 mm). [1, title], [2, Clowes imprint], [3]-104 (text, with Clowes imprint at foot of last page) pp. Bound in twentieth-century red morocco, top edge gilt, others uncut, by Henderson & Bisset. With a few repairs to the title page at margins and along gutter, a few paper flaws. Fine. Provenance: Herman LeRoy Edgar (his sale, 19 April 1944, $875); with leather bookplate of great Lebanese-American collector Francis Kettaneh; Kenyon Starling; Wm. Self.

Buchbeschreibung: Chapman & Hall 1906-1908., London, 1906. Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and tooling, blue inlay. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exquisite set in near fine condition. Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

Buchbeschreibung: 1850. [the American serial parts] [In 20-parts-in-19.] New York: John Wiley [Parts 1-11 plus Part 19/20; G. P. Putnam, Parts 12-18], 1849-1850. Original light tan wrappers. Very early American edition, one of two issued in serial parts. In 1849-1850 both Lea & Blanchard of Philadelphia, and John Wiley / G.P. Putnam of New York (as here), issued DAVID COPPERFIELD in parts, derived from the English parts then coming out. (As Walter Smith points out, the front wrapper of the first two parts states "This edition is re-printed from proof sheets received by special arrangement from the London Publishers" -- but no such "arrangement" in writing has ever been found.) John Wiley of New York issued the first ten parts under his imprint, the next eight bore the imprint of G.P. Putnam, and the final double number bore the Wiley imprint again. (As Podeschi points out, the publisher imprint on Parts 12-18 varies, because when Putnam took over he used some of Wiley's old un-numbered wrappers -- but in this set, all seven do bear the Putnam imprint.)~The English serial parts had 40 plates by H.K. Browne ("Phiz") -- two per part. In the Wiley / Putnam parts, the first part reads "Illustrated by H.K. Browne" while the others read "The illustrations engraved on wood by J.W. Orr [& Brother], from designs by H.K. Browne." According to Wilkins these Orr plates were "much better drawn and engraved than those in the Philadelphia edition." A complete set of Wiley / Putnam parts contains 36 plates, not 40: for the first two parts, Wiley had great difficulty getting plates engraved in time to accompany their corresponding text; therefore, he issued Part 3 withOUT plates, and beginning with that part the wrapper states "The illustrations for this No. will be given with the next.". Thus Part 19/20 has the two plates that go with the text of Part 18, and that final part's wrapper states "The FOUR ILLUSTRATIONS for this Number will be furnished to Subscribers, Gratis, in a few days."~After serialization, Wiley published an 1850 two-volume edition (with all 40 plates); curiously, Lea & Blanchard did not publish a book edition until 1851. (Incidentally the actual "first American edition," i.e. the first to appear in its entirety in America, was Burgess's single-volume one in wrappers with only eight illustrations -- ironically Burgess set his text from, and copied the plates in Wiley's parts.)~This set is in very good-plus, perhaps near-fine condition: the wrappers have minor edge-wear and some fragile spines have some slight chipping, but the parts are COMPLETE and include all the proper wrappers. Many of the front wrappers include the signature of the same (undoubtedly first) owner of these parts -- in some cases inscribing them on to someone else, and in two cases adding a brief observation, namely "Good!" and "David commits Matrimony!". It is no exaggeration that one sees a hundred sets of English serial parts for every single set of American serial parts. Smith (American Dickens) pp 284-294 (this set -- see one of the above inscriptions in the photo on p. 284); Podeschi (Yale) A123; Carr (UTexas) B221; Wilkins p. 29. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 12589

Large octavo, original blind-stamped cloth lettered in gilt, yellow eps., with half-title, additional engraved title and 39 plates, tissue guards, 1 plate with closed tear affecting caption and just touching image, some foxing, mainly to plates. This copy in a variant unrecorded publisher's cloth with a more ornate/stylised blind-stamping to spine and borders (and without a central medallion), unlike that descibed by Smith, which features the square panelling to spine and straight line border with small corner devices. Cloth expertly repaired to spine tips, recased, some rubbing and minor discolour, faint ink name to pastedown, housed in a modern leather-tipped cloth slip-case. A very good copy. Mixed issue with early points thus; title engraving is dated, and page viii (preface) has the final 'i' misalined. The misprint 'screamed' is corrected in this copy ('screwed'), p.132, line 20.

FINE FIRST EDITION, BOUND IN HANDSOME BLUE CALF OVER BLUE MARBLED BOARDS. For many lovers of the author's works, DAVID COPPERFIELD ranks as the finest of his writings. "Of all my books," Dickens wrote, "I like this the best; like many fond parents I have my favourite child, and his name is David Copperfield." It is certainly Dickens’ most personal and autobiographical work, especially in the remarkable early chapters describing David’s provincial upbringing and his experiences in the bleak warehouses of London. Abounding in vivid characters such as Uriah Heep, Betsy Trotwood, Mr. Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick, DAVID COPPERFIELD continues to rank among Dickens’ most popular and critically acclaimed works. In this work, Dickens displays his talents well: "his inordinate gift of observation, his sympathy with the humble, his power over the emotions and his incomparable endowment of unalloyed human fun.It gave what were then universally referred to as ‘the lower orders’ a new sense of self-respect, a new feeling of citizenship. Like the defiance of another Luther, or the Declaration of a new Independence, it emitted a fresh ray of hope across the firmament." [EB] In this way, Dickens’ work is significant on many levels.

[London: 1890]. Measures 14 x 10 1/2 inches. Matted, framed and glazed. Picture depicts Uriah Heep looking like he is up to something with his hands crossed and a sly look on his face. He is standing next to a desk and chair with what looks like a newspaper in the background. A very charming piece. Uriah Heep is a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in David Copperfield. The character is notable for his cloying humility, obsequiousness, and insincerity, making frequent references to his own "'humbleness". His name has become synonymous with being a yes man. He is the central antagonist in the later part of the book. HBS 66577. $1,750. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 66577

Buchbeschreibung: Arthur Barker, Ltd., London, 1933. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Very Good. First edition. A Very Good copy (spine sunned and with some foxing, corners rubbed, modest shelf wear, prize plate to the front free endpaper). An ASSOCIATION COPY FROM ROBERT GRAVES TO FELLOW POET WILLIAM J ELLIS AND HIS WIFE MARIA PAZ DE MENDOZA and INSCRIBED to them on the front free endpaper: "Bill & Cuca / with love / from Robert / Deia/ -1971-". (A small coastal village on the island of Majorca, Spain, now known for its famous literary and musical residents. Robert Graves was one of the first foreigners to make his home there, which he did with Laura Riding, leaving with her at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and returning there with his new wife, Beryl, in 1946. Graves died at Deia in 1985.) Graves considered Dickens' David Copperfield to be not well-written and judged that at least 250,000 of the 500,000 words written by Dickens (needed solely to reach the required 20 Parts in which it originally was published in 1849-1950) were unnecessary. This novel, as editied and revised by Graves, presents the tale in a much more readable form. Signed copies of Graves' Limited Editions abound, but signed copies of his trade editions do not. Association copies are rarer still. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY, INSCRIBED, SIGNED, DATED, AND PLACED BY ROBERT GRAVES. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 00002165
