What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Rebound

'Nicholas Nickleby' is a novel about the eponymous character, a young man who has to look after and support his mother and sister after the death of his father. They move up to London, where they meet their only relative, the antagonist Ralph Nickleby, and Nicholas finds a job with the horrific Wackford Squeers. 'Nicholas Nickleby' was Dickens' third published novel (after 'The Pickwick Papers' and 'Oliver Twist') and cemented his reputation as one of the greatest writers of the Victorian age. Charles Dickens is possibly the most well-known Victorian author, with his fifteen novels still being widely read and performed, as well as being studied in school and enjoyed by people of all ages. Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne, most often known by his penname 'Phiz'. As Phiz, he illustrated many of Dickens' novels, including 'David Copperfield', 'Dombey and Son', and 'Bleak House', as well as illustrating for 'Punch' throughout his life. With a frontispiece and thirty-nine plates. Undated, dated from Copac. Collated, complete.
