Notes

First edition in book-form of the novel that transformed the obscure journalist into England's most famous writer in a matter of months. The novel was first published in serial form from March 1836 to November 1837. This copy is an early issue, with the plates in early states without publisher imprint, the Buss plates replaced by Phiz plates, and with the vignette title-page with the signboard reading "Veller" (corrected to "Weller" in later issues).
