Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

Enough biblio/source info in intros for the dedicated Dickens lover. A good buy at the discounted price on A.com or used book store. Third time reading A Tale; gets better everytime.

I adore these versions of the classics. They will definitely be something I can pass down to posterity. They come also with great notes in the back making them very functional not just pretty versions.

I loved the book as for its contens, but nowadays , with all that cheap paperback standards, when you find some hardbound, fabric covered book, is a gift.
Is great if you want to make a present that is a good read and a good object.
