SUMMARY:
* __
CHARLES JOHN HUFFAM DICKENS (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime and, by the 20th century, critics and scholars had recognized him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories are widely read today.
* _LITTLE DORRIT_ is a novel by Charles Dickens, originally published in serial form between 1855 and 1857. The story features Amy Dorrit, youngest child of her family, born and raised in the Marshalsea prison for debtors in London. Arthur Clennam encounters her after returning home from a 20-year absence, ready to begin his life anew.
* The novel satirises some shortcomings of both government and society, including the institution of debtors' prisons, where debtors were imprisoned, unable to work and yet incarcerated until they had repaid their debts.
CONDITION:
* Condition is Good/Good+. Some wear to edges, color added over a few leather abrasions, bookplate, spotting/blemishing to frontispiece/title, most plates/opposite plate pages, most pages are good, hinges/text block are very good!
