The Works of Charles Dickens Volume 1

The Works of Charles Dickens Volume I

This collection of stories from the late English novelist, Charles Dickens, sits on desk in my parents’ home.  The volume contains some wonderful illustrations and the following stories: Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Our Mutual Friend, Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, and Martin Chuzzlewit.

After careful inspection, I found the book was published by P.F. Collier in 1880, and was most likely purchased by my maternal grandparents in Ashland, Kentucky during the years 1955-1957.  It’s had its share of wear-and-tear throughout the years.  Click here to view the picture set.
