Dickens' first edition to be sold

A first edition of Charles Dickens' 'David Copperfield' signed by the author is to be auctioned by Christie's today.

The book was given by Dickens to knife and tool manufacturer Brookes of Sheffield- whose name is similar to that of a character in the novel- in May 1851.

It's expected to fetch between £30,000 and £50,0000.
