Product description

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on 7 February 1812. He began Oliver Twist in 1837, followed by Nicholas Nickleby (1838) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41). A Christmas Carol, appeared in 1843, David Copperfield in 1850. In later works, such as Bleak House (1853) and Little Dorrit (1857), Dickens's social criticism became more radical and his comedy more savage. He published Hard Times in 1854, A Tale of Two Cities in 1859 and Great Expectations in 1860. His last novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, was never completed and he died on 9 June 1870.

Format: Hardcover
Very pleased with the set, the hard linnen covers really suit C. Dicken's novels.
The price, quality and delivery service were excellent. I am going to add
David Copperfied and I hope it will match the set.
Prior to purchase I was wondering what size the books would be, but they are ideal. A geat way to start the 200 yr. Dickens celebrations.
many thanks P.L.Pock.

Excellent read along with quality of internal printing. However poor quality of print on binder/book covers. Only half way through first book Oliver Twist, and the print is starting to rub off on cover. Shame really collection looks and feels great, binder quality print lets it down!

I'm only halfway through this collection of books and i love it already! Dickens is a masterful storyteller and all his stories are full of memorable characters. This particular set of books are very beautiful to look at on the shelf and even lovelier to read.

Beautiful, I just wish that the graphics on the hard covers did not mark so easily.
