Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit - Charles Dickens, H. K. Browne aka ‘Phiz’ (Illustrator) 1892 - Macmillan and Co. , London - Reprint Edition ‘Any man may be in good spirits and good temper when he’s well dressed’.

A handsomely bound edition of Dickens’ satirical comedy of hypocrisy, selfishness, and greed, the picaresque story of young Martin Chuzzlewit who, together with the scheming architect Pecksniff, journeys to America to seek his fortune.

First serially published in 1843-4, this edition features the wonderful original illustrations by ‘Phiz’ (British illustrator Hablot Knight Browne), together with an introduction, biography, and bibliography by Charles Dickens the younger, and a facsimile of the original wrapper.
  Much of Martin Chuzzlewit was inspired by Dickens travels in America in 1842, which left an unfavourable impression on him.
