The Personal History and Experience of DAVID COPPERFIELD, the Younger

Dickens, Charles

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. First American Edition in serial parts (one of two such editions). 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.

0. DICKENS, Charles. The Personal History and Experience of David Copperfield the Younger. Original printed wrappers. New-York: John Wiley [Parts 1-10 and 19/20; G.P. Putnam [Parts 11-18], 1849-1850. 20 Parts in 19. First American edition in parts. Rare, two copies offered at auction in the last 70 years. Gimbel A123. Edgar & Vail, p.25. Wilkins, p.29.In 1849-1850 both the Philadelphia firm of Lea and Blanchard and the New York firm of John Wiley issued David Copperfield in parts, from the English parts then coming 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.") John Wiley of New York issued the first ten parts under his imprint, the next eight are under the imprint of G.P. Putnam, and the final double number bore the Wiley imprint again. The English serial parts had 40 plates (two per part) by H.K. Browne ("Phiz"). 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." Wilkins states the Orr plates are "much better drawn and engraved than those in the Philadelphia edition." A complete set of Wiley-Putnam parts contains 36 plates, not 40. Wiley had problems getting plates engraved in time to accompany their corresponding text and so he issued Part 3 sans plates, and beginning with that part the wrapper states "The illustrations for this No. will be given with the next." Part 19/20 has the two plates that go with the text of Part 18, and that final part's wrapper states at the foot: "The FOUR ILLUSTRATIONS for this Number will be furnished to Subscribers, Gratis, in a few days." Very old waterstain to the foredge of Part One, not affecting text, Part One also has small ink stain on front wrapper several wrappers professionally repaired; else a very good set, housed in custom green morocco-backed slipcase with inner cloth chemise. Ownership signature of George William Gordon of Boston, a strong Abolitionist who ran for governor on the Fillmore Party ballot (and lost). It would be difficult to overstate the extreme scarcity of complete American parts issued of Dickens' major novels.

NICE ITEM FOR THE COLLECTOR. Charles John Huffam Dickens; (7 February 1812 ¿ 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period.During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. David Copperfield is the common name of the eighth novel by Charles Dickens, first published as a novel in 1850. Its full title is The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (Which He Never Meant to Publish on Any Account). Like most of his works, it originally appeared in serial form during the two preceding years. Many elements of the novel follow events in Dickens' own life, and it is probably the most autobiographical of his novels. In the preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens wrote, ".like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favorite child. And his name is David Copperfield." ANTIQUE BOOKS DEN, WHERE HISTORY LIVES.
