    Hello everyone!!
    Here is a beautiful set of Charles Dickens books that I've had in my book collection for a few years. These were printed and issued in 1957 by The Heritage Press of New York. These were more than likely collector's series issues. These books were beautifully done and they have some incredible artwork inside. As you can see, they're in wonderful condition. Besides "A Christmas Carol", I'd have to say that "The Pickwick Papers" would have to be my favorite of them all. I'm a big fan of Mr. Pickwick and I even have a Mr. Pickwick cast iron doorstop in my collection.

    Thank you all so very much for stopping by!!!

    Scott

      What a wonderful, gorgeous set of Dickens novels, one of those authors you can read over & over again. My faves are Tale of Two Cities and Oliver Twist.

      Thanks Jenni!!
      I do love Oliver Twist as well. I read all of these stories back in the 1970's for my high school literature class.
