xiv,[i],624 pp. 1st edition early issue with the 14 line errata sheet. 36 of 39 plates. In what appears to be original 3/4 leather with marbled boards, paneled spine with gilt and black label, title gilt just legible, some chipping at spine top, normal wear and rubbing to boards and corners. Interior plates are quite foxed which is not unusual. Two of the plates have been hand coloured, one of them amateurishly, a number of the plates are in the wrong spot and a few have edges repaired not affecting the print. The vignette half title is also missing, Text is a bit browned but otherwise clean and unmarked. A not perfect copy but still handsome and readable. One of the plates illustrating Chuzzlewit's travels in America shows a young slave boy. Quite scarce in the first edition. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
