What Our Customers Say...

Description

Decorative Binding, Early Edition

This tale is an adventure story regarding a shipwreck; it was published in the 1856 Christmas edition of 'Household Words'. It was a collaborative effort between Dickens and Wilkie Collins.

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was an extremely celebrated Victorian writer known for his works which document the social conditions of the time, and his works are still immensely popular today, and include 'Oliver Twist', 'The Pickwick Papers', 'A Christmas Carol', 'A Tale of Two Cities', 'Martin Chuzzlewit' and 'Great Expectations'.

Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) was an English novelist and playwright whose works include 'The Woman in White' and 'The Moonstone'; he collaborated with Dickens on numerous works, and was a friend and student of the writer.

With a beautifully coloured frontispiece by A. Jules Goodman, as well as an illustrated title page.

In a lovely decorative and festive binding.
