Originally published in 1911, this book contains an assessment of the remaining fragments of Dickens' unfinished novel Edwin Drood. Dickens scholar Henry Jackson does not attempt to reconstruct the story's plot, but brings out certain details overlooked by other experts of his day, including clues contained in the book's unpublished cover. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Dickens' final work.
