Editorial Reviews


"It is a wonderful privilege to be able to pore over ... Dickens' greatest and most compelling novel, to see his alterations and working notes, and to get as close as can be possible to following his mind as he wrote."
- Claire Tomalin, author of Charles Dickens: A Life

"Manna for true Dickens afficionados and all who love exhibits of original literary manuscripts"
- Library Journal

Book Description

The original manuscript of Great Expectations has been newly photographed and is here reproduced in colour and at actual size. The serialised version of 1860-1 and the first book edition of 1861 are also reissued, enabling scholars and enthusiasts to study Dickens' work-in-progress alongside the first two published versions.

Man oh man. I am a lover of all things Dickens but this very expensive (paperback) reproduction of the Great Expectations manuscript is a disaster. Sure, Dickens' hand was difficult to decipher, but the font selected by the publisher clearly for economy's sake renders each page illegible. You want to know what chicken scratches look like? Buy this text. I must say that this is the first, and only, Dickens related item which will not remain in my collection. Back to Amazon it goes.
