The third set of titles in the essential collector's Dickens are finally available. The texts are taken from the 1867 Chapman and Hall edition, which became known as the Charles Dickens edition, the last edition edited by the author himself. The Nonesuch edition contains illustrations selected by Dickens, by artists including Hablot Knight Browne, George Cruikshank, John Leech, Robert Seymour and George Cattermole.Praise for the Nonesuch Dickens Collections
The new Nonesuch Dickens reproduces the original elegance of these beautiful editions. The books are printed on natural cream-shade high quality stock, are quarter bound in bonded leather with cloth sides, include a ribbon marker and features special printed endpapers. Each volume is wrapped in a protective, clear acetate jacket.
The Old Curiosity Shop tells the tragic story of Little Nell.
"The books are handsomely made, with sewn bindings and leather spines . . . theyıre worth the price if only for the crisply reprinted illustrations."
"The books--modeled after 1937's Nonesuch Dickens collection-don't look too shabby on shelves."
