Product Description

Dickens's life is as full of stories as the novels he wrote so vividly. Interactive and endlessly interesting, Charles Dickens moves chronologically through the most important stages and events in Dickens's life, including special spotlights on his most important works. Learn about his time spent as a child labourer, how he became the greatest celebrity of his age, his family, friends, hobbies, travels, and the other aspects of his life.

Filled with photographs and actual reproduction memorabilia, this interactive book offers a change to the staid biographical work. Two-page spreads provide just enough information on each facet of Dickens; a variety of photographs, reproduction documents, and portraits are included throughout each chapter and bring the reader into the world of Dickensian England. Fold-out pages with pockets can be opened to look at a number of unique facsimile items including manuscripts, certificates, playbills, visiting cards, letters, a poster, and more; each pocket numbers the contents and provides a description and transcription of any handwritten items.

A brilliant way to learn about a remarkable man, see for yourself how he still remains one of Britain's most renowned literary figures, even in the twenty-first century. Created in association with the Charles Dickens Museum, London. 121 pages, indexed, hardcover.
