Overview

Long out of print, The Oxford Illustrated Dickens is again available in a handsome 21-volume hardbound set complete with the original illustrations. Based on the definitive Charles Dickens Edition, which was revised by the author in 1860, each volume features up to 76 original illustrations by such notable Victorian artists as "Phiz" and George Cruikshank, and an informative introduction by a prominent writer or critic. Dickens captured the popular imagination as no other novelist. His high-spirited humor, genius for characterization, mysterious plots, and biting irony give his works an appeal for all ages in all times. Simply name the stories --"A Christmas Carol," Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Hard Times, Oliver Twist--and a marvelous world comes to mind, peopled by some of the most memorable characters in literature.
