Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Pictures from Italy is one of Charles Dickens' early works, a fantastic and whimsical foray into the twin worlds of travel and the imagination. Italy's famous sights are all to be found here - St Peter's in Rome, Naples with Vesuvius smouldering in the background and canals of Venice. In this book, the author portrays a nation of great contrasts: between grandiose buildings and squalid poverty, and between past and present, as he observes everyday life beside ancient monuments.
