What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Rebound

The work contains No. 423 New Series (6th January 1877) to No. 448 New Series (30th June 1877). The title page at the beginning of the work states the work begins at No. 407 (16th September 1876) but this work has been bound without the first thirteen journals and as such the pagination begins at page 385. Each journal included is complete within itself. From No. 431 there is new pagination, but the work follows directly on from the previous journal. This notable British weekly literary magazine was founded and owned by Charles Dickens, first published between 1859 and 1895. Edited by Dickens himself, the work was a direct successor to his previous publication 'Household Words'. Throughout the magazines publication, the periodical serialised many prominent novels, including Dickens' own 'A Tale of Two Cities'. After Dickens's death in 1870, the periodical was owned and edited by his eldest son Charles Dickens, Jr.
