I am an avid, though amateur, vintage article collector, mainly of the mildly eclectic. I recently received, as a gift, an early edition of the book David Copperfield with a printed copywrite date of 1847. The book also has an inscription with date (1847) by its original owner. How is this possible? All things I have read, in attempts to find out whether this is a book from the first 'collected' publishing, say the story David Copperfield is from Dickens' published entries of the story between the years 1848 and 1850. Please respond quickly, as this contradiction is driving me insane.<br><br>Thank you,<br><br>Jame McCoy
