Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Ulverston Based in part on the author's own life, David Copperfield is the epic story of a young man's journey of self-discovery - from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to his vocation as a successful novelist. Among the memorable cast of characters he encounters along the way are his brutal stepfather, Mr Murdstone; bubbly Nurse Peggotty; his brilliant, but unworthy schoolmate Steerforth, his eccentric aunt, Betsy Trotwood, the scheming clerk Uriah Heep, the enchanting Dora and the magnificent Mr Macawber - a character much like Dickens' own father. Full of tragedy and comedy in equal measure, David Copperfield remains one of the most enduring and popular of Dickens' novels. Chapman & Hall, 1890. Hardback. 8vo Crown edition. Publisher's maroon cloth boards. 695 pp with 40 illustrations, including tissue guarded frontis. Deckled edges. Book condition: fair. Owner's signature to ffep. Underlining and annotations throughout, mostly in pencil. Hinges cracked though binding firm. Edgewear and sunning to spine. Some foxing to endpapers. See Oxfam website for delivery information
