Notes

First edition, first issue, bound from parts, with all the issue points listed by Smith. With the 100 title plate, not transposed. The transposed plate is often referred to as a first issue point, though Hatton and Cleaver long ago dismissed this, stating that "It is merely one of the five cases in Chuzzlewit of triplicated steels, one of them reading '100' and the other two '100'... all three of them in use during the issue in parts."
