    This book was given to me by a friend who knew nothing about its history. She didn't have any use for it and I was interested because it's by Dickens. There are 9 Dickens stories, including Oliver Twist and David Copperfield and 8 color plates as well as some small black and white drawings throughout. There is no copyright page, so I'm not sure of the date of publication, but hand written on the inside front cover is the date Dec 25, 1910, so it's at least 100 years old. I was told by someone that since there is no copyright date, the book isn't worth as much, but no pages are missing - none have been torn out. Someone else told me that they did not include copyright pages at this early publication date. (I'm not sure about this, I think I've seen other very old books with copyright pages in them.) Color pages are all very clear, the cover is quite worn but still all in one piece. Can someone give me an idea about the value of this very sweet little old book?

      Some of the earliest books did not have copyright dates. I learned this working in a library. Hope you can find something out.
