Description: Dickens, Charles. THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY. London: Chapman & Hall, 1839. Bound from the original parts. With frontis portrait and 39 plates, retaining half-title at front. Bound in period half-calf over marbled boards spine with wide bands in gilt and title on label in gilt, marbled page-ends and end-papers. Some light rubbing to spine and light wear to corners/edges. Many of the plates with the moderate to heavy foxing typical of these books, one plate with discrete repair at lower margin and the whole laid down, one other plate with smaller paper repair to verso, text with some instances of thumbing or soiling in places throughout, one leaf with marginal repair, on the whole Very Good. ****************************************** First edition, bound from the parts. All plates up to page 45 with the publisher's imprint with the exception of the frontis. The present copy is a very early issue as it contains the rare error on page 123, line 17 ("sister" rather than "visitor".) According to Eckel, this error is rarely seen and must appear only in the earliest of issues, "... how it ever got into the book is almost unexplainable when it is noted that Dickens discovered the error in the proof." [Eckel, 57-60]
