    The Old Curiosity Shop

    by Charles Dickens

    Book Description

    "The Old Curiosity Shop" tells the tragic story of Little Nell. Raised by her loving grandfather, the actions of the malevolent Quilp sees the pair cast out of their home and falling into poverty. A moving story of courage and pursuit, the novel blends a realistic portrayal of the damaging effects of industrialisation with fairytale elements. It is based on the world-famous Nonesuch Press edition of 1937. The text is taken from the 1867 Chapman and Hall edition, which became known as the Charles Dickens edition, and was the last edition to be corrected by the author himself. The Nonesuch edition contains illustrations selected by Dickens himself, by artists including Hablot Knight Browne ('Phiz'), George Cruikshank, John Leech, Robert Seymour and George Cattermole. The new Nonesuch Dickens reproduces the original elegance of these beautiful editions. Books are printed on Natural Cream shade high quality stock, are quarter bound in bonded leather with cloth sides, include a ribbon marker and feature special printed endpapers.
