Overview

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

Like many fond parents," wrote Charles Dickens, "I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is David Copperfield." First published in book form in November 1850, Dickens' own favorite among his works is his most autobiographical novel, boasting a wealth of adventure and suspense as well as an unparalleled gallery of the author's most memorable characters. This Nonesuch edition features the author's final text and the illustrations Dickens himself selected to complement his words.

The Legendary Nonesuch Dickens, issued in the 1930s, presented the writing of the foremost English novelist in its most distinguished format. Upon its original publication, the set was hailed as "one of the most glorious publishing achievements of our time." Now the peerless Nonesuch standards have been revived in new editions of Dickens' most beloved works, introducing a new generation of readers to these masterpieces of literature, illustration and book design.

The Nonesuch Press was founded in London by Francis Meynell in 1923. Applying the refinement and expertise of the private press aesthetic to commercial publishing, Nonesuch books were among the most elegant and treasured volumes produced in the first half of the twentieth century. The fabled Nonesuch Dickens was the Press' most ambitious project, treasured both for its quality and its rarity: only 877 twenty-four volume sets were issued, and complete original sets have sold recently at auction for more than $30,000.

Employing modern printing technology seven decades later, each book in the revived Nonesuch Dickens replicates the enduring editorial and design excellence of its inspiration at an affordable price.

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth, where his father worked as a clerk. Living in London in 1824, Dickens was sent by his family to work in a blacking-warehouse, and his father was arrested and imprisoned for debt. Fortunes improved and Dickens returned to school, eventually becoming a parliamentary reporter. His first piece of fiction was published by a magazine in December 1832, and by 1836 he had begun his first novel, The Pickwick Papers. He focused his career on writing, completing fourteen highly successful novels, as well as penning journalism, shorter fiction and travel books. He died in 1870.

FYI, this free Google download is only Volume 3. Even though it looks like you will be getting the full book, this ebook is only Chapters 30-45 (out of 64).

They start the scanning somewhere in the middle of the book. Lots of words that did not tranlate properly.
