Hardback, red cloth engraved, gold lettering on spine. Bumping at spine ends, slight rubbing to corners. Undated, but assumed to be pre-1900, being part of a set comprising Dickens' collected works, which he described as "the best edition of my works". This edition is in facsimile, the two volumes of David Copperfield bound together in one. A note inside states: " This is an exact facsimile in every detail of text and illustration, excepting only the title pages, of the last edition of his works published under the eye of CD....The original series comprised 30 volumes, but by printing two volumes as one, the complete edition is here contained within 15 volumes, the style of binding being also copied from the original". Condition of book is generally good for age; the front hinge is relaxed showing webbing and the front free end paper is deeply tanned, as at the rear. There is light foxing to the half-title page. Page block edge is smooth and reasonably clean, with darkening along the top edge. Inside, the text is clean and clear, with many illustrations by H.K. Browne.
